Sharing access to collections

Lets assume that video has already been uploaded to your collections and you are now ready to share this content. In this section you'll learn how to do this and learn how to manage the subscriptions which are created.

Managing members

In the previous video you saw how sharing a collection could be as simple as sending an email. The members page functions as a contacts list and allows you to make sharing even simpler.

The members list contains the following:

1.Everyone who you have given individual access to
2.Members that you have manually added
3.Public who have self-subscribed to collections

In this next video we also see how to add or edit a member to include additional contact information and it also reveals how upload a file to add many members at once:


Your questions answered

So I see that I can delete subscriptions but can I reinvite?

From the members list you can only view and delete subscriptions. Any sharing tasks, such as reinviting, start from the sharing page.

What is the relationship between a member and their login?

As an admin, you have no responsibility for creating a member's account. They will login when required and create an account if necessary. The relationship between the details you hold for a member and their account is established when you share a collection, click the link, and login.

So their account could use a different email address to that in my members list?

Yes. The member's account email address is always used for communications (sharing invitations, notifications), unless the account is not yet linked to the channel membership.

Can I subscribe someone to my channel so they always have access to all content?

No. You can only subscribe a member to collections. It is very easy to share a collection with all your members and also very easy to give a member access to all collections.

I'm sure I already shared a collection but the email address I used isn't in my members list / a subscription has not been created

A member is not added unless individual access is given to a collection. In the same way, individual access is required to create a subscription
