Stories sharing settings

In Teamie, you can keep your stories private or share it with other. A story can be shared at the following levels:

  • Private
  • Custom
    • Share with individual users
    • Share with classrooms (or modules)
  • Within your institution/school/enterprise

This article will guide you on how to share your story at different levels. Let's see how to do this.

1. Click the sidebar.

2. Click My Stories to view all the stories created by you.

3. Click on the story whose sharing settings you wish to change.

4. Click Edit to enter the edit mode of the story.

5. Click the Privacy dropdown. By default, the Private setting is selected which means that the story is private and only you will be able to view your story.

6. Click Custom to share the story with specific classroom(s) and user(s).

7. Once you select the Custom option, you will be able to view two new sharing settings - Share with modules (classrooms) and Share with people.

Modules is a whitelabelled term for classrooms and can differ for different Teamie sites.

8. Click the Share with modules (classrooms) dropdown and tick the required classroom(s) checkbox(es) to share the story with one or more classrooms.

9. Click the Share with people box and start typing the required connection's name (user(s) that belong to the same classroom(s) that you are part of). Click the user from the auto populated list matching your entered text.

10. Similarly, you can add more than one connections as per your requirement to share your story with them.

Once you select the Public to the world option, you need to just copy the URL of the story and you can paste and share your story outside Teamie (for example on Facebook). Anyone who clicks on the public link will be able to view your story without the need to login to Teamie.

Take note that the public story link will only give access to the public story and not anything else on Teamie.
