Collaborate with Duplicate and Edit Feature

September 4, 2014

Have you ever wanted to collaborate with others on the same FlowVella presentation but didn’t know how? Or maybe you’ve just discovered FlowVella and have yet to create your own. Either way, we’ve got you covered. Read on to learn how easy it is to share and edit Flows with others.

Allow Others to Duplicate and Edit Your Flowboard - Flowboard

If you’re working on a new Flow and decide you’d like to share it with someone who may want to modify or edit it down the road, it’s super easy to do that. During the Post process, just make sure to check the box next to “Allow others to duplicate and edit” as seen above.

If you’ve already created a Flow and have decided that you’d like to allow others to duplicate and edit it, it’s a quick and easy fix. Just open the Flow, and select Post or Share. Check the box next to “Allow others to duplicate and edit” as shown above. You can make this modification in either the Mac or iPad app.

If you’re using FlowVella in a classroom setting, we strongly suggest that you do NOT allow students to be signed into the same account on different iPads at the same time. Instead, you should create an account for each student so that no work is in danger of being accidentally deleted or saved over. When students are finished with the session, instruct them to Save a Draft or Post the Flow, then sign out.

If students are working on a group project, they can easily share versions of their Flow with each other, and edit the Flow on their respective iPad. Just have them check the box to allow others to duplicate and edit, then share the URL with another student. When that group member has made edits, anyone else in the group can easily “duplicate” that Flow from the Library screen by tapping and holding its tile. It will then appear on the My Flows screen, and can be opened and edited without losing the original. When finished, this version can be posted and shared with other group members.
