What are the differences between view and edit permissions on a shared map?

When you collaborate with your team, there are two permission levels for shared maps: View Only and Edit. When you share a map as View Only, the user can do the following:

  • Navigate the map
  • See the datasets in the left sidebar
  • Check the box to show or hide the pins for datasets
  • Apply filters to the pins on the map

With View Only permissions, a user CANNOT:

  • Change the marker
  • Add additional data sets to a map
  • Edit data for any location
  • See the entire dataset nor export it

Edit permissions enables a user to have full access to the map and the dataset. Edit permissions are only available for accounts with multiple users when sharing with another user on the same account.
