Sharing defaults control how, by default, your population will be shared with all of your partners.

Sharing Settings

There are three Sharing Data options to choose from. These settings allow you to share as much, or as little, data with your partners as you'd like.

1. Hidden

Hidden is the sharing default and your partners will not be able to see the Population.

2. Overlap Counts

Your partners will see the number of overlaps that exist for this Population. No specific data is shared with your partner when using this setting.

When your sharing setting is set to Overlap Counts only, only numerical value of overlaps will be displayed. Your partner will not be able to view any additional information about these overlaps without requesting data from you first.

3. Sharing Data

Choose what data you would like to make available to your partner when, and only when, an overlap occurs. Check the boxes next to which fields you would like to share in the event of an overlap within this Population.

Setting the Sharing Defaults

From the left-side Navigation Menu, click on the Data icon. This will open the side panel for Data & Sharing, select Populations from the panel options, and your workspace will display the Populations area. Locate the Sharing Default area and click on the pencil icon within a Population to easily adjust your default sharing settings any time.

You will also be prompted to set default sharing settings for each new Population you create. Adjust these settings as needed.
