Map Funtions - Collaboration

With collaboration, you can share text messages, images, and markups in real time, directly in the map.

To create a new room and give users permission to join the room:

  1. You must be logged in to the map to create or participate in a collaboration room.
  2. Locate Collaboration in the toolbar and click it.
    The Collaboration panel opens. The Collaboration panel is initially empty.
  3. Click the Join a Room drop-down menu and then click Create a Room.
    Any user can create a room.
  4. Type a name for the room.
  5. Select a color identifier.
    The color identifier helps to distinguish which messages in the Collaboration panel apply to each room.
  6. Under Permissions, select Individuals or Groups, begin typing an individual user name or group name in the Search field, select a user or group in the filtered list, then click Add.
    The user or group is included in the list under the permission settings with the View permission set by default.
    The lists are of everyone in the InfiniteGIS system, so you will need to know the user’s login name or the group they belong to.
    Users and/or groups must have access to your site for them to participate in the room.
  7. Select user permissions from among None, View, Edit, or Admin.
    User permissions can be assigned to any users that sign in to the room (Signed-in Users), and also separately for individuals or groups that have been included in the room.
    The user creating the room is automatically included in the list of users as the administrator for that room. An administrator cannot edit their own permissions (set to Admin by default). Only another user with administrative privileges can edit permissions for other administrators.
  8. Click Save to save the new room.
    The room is immediately available for messages, drawings, and images.

To send a message to room participants:

  1. Type your message in the message entry area.
  2. Click Send.

To add a drawing:

  1. Click Drawing above the message entry area.
  2. Select one of the available drawing tools.
  3. To change the styling for the selected drawing tool, click Style and change any of the color, pattern, and other styling attributes.
  4. Draw on the map.
  5. Add any applicable comments in the message entry area.
  6. To clear the drawing or the related message before sending it, click the X beside the Drawing heading, and then click OK.
  7. Click Send to post your drawing reference and text to the room for others to view.
    To identify the drawing on the map associated with a message, click the message to pulse the drawing on the map. When you click a message for a drawing that is not in view or only partially visible on the map, the drawing on the map is centered. Depending on the zoom level for the map, the drawing is centered and zoomed in on, or it is centered without zooming.

To place an image:

  1. Click Image above the message entry area.
  2. Select an image to upload.
    On a mobile device with a camera, one of the options for a picture will be to use the built-in camera.
  3. Click the location on the map to apply the image icon.
  4. The Send button becomes available once you have located the image.
  5. To move the image icon, click Locate, and then click the new location.
  6. Add any applicable comments in the message entry area.
  7. To clear the message or the image before sending it, click the X beside the Image heading above the message entry area. Click OK to confirm the action.
  8. Click Send to post your image attachment and text for others to view.
    To identify the image icon on the map associated with a message, click the message to pulse the image icon on the map. When you click a message for an image icon that is not in view on the map, the image icon is centered in the map view.
