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

As we read in our intro to Data Sharing, sharing starts at the population level with Sharing Defaults.

Default Sharing Settings

When setting default sharing settings, there are three options to choose from- Hidden, Overlap Counts, and Sharing Data. These settings allow you to share as much, or as little, data with your partners as you'd like.

1. Hidden

Your partners will not be able to see this population, they won't even know you've created it.

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, the numerical value of overlaps will display in the matrix. 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.

Where to Set your Sharing Defaults

You can set you sharing defaults on the Populations tab! Click on the pencil 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. Default sharing settings are not set in stone, feel free to adjust these settings as needed.

Find out how to customize your population sharing defaults for specific partners in Sharing Settings for Partners.
