Did you know? What your contacts see

UNDERSTANDING SHARING

What your contacts see

When you share one or more albums with your contacts, it’s natural to want to know what they see when they view your space. It’s easy – you just have to put yourself in their shoes!


Here’s what to do:

- in the contact list, choose a recipient and click
- on the "ACTION"button
- select "What does this contact see?" (log in)"

This simple, effective trick works with all your contacts, whatever their type (anonymous, classic, or advanced).

Did you know? adjust column width as you want

 
Joomeo contains numerous features that enable you to easily manage your files.
One of them is accessible from an icon in the left column of your Joomeo space.


 
 
It allows you to easily manage the width of this column.

 
 

You can edit the size of the column by clicking and dragging it with your mouse’s cursor.

When you click on the icon, the left column contracts completely to the side, thereby widening your workspace.
 
When the column is fully stowed to the side, simply hover over it with your mouse to make it reappear on top of your workspace.
The column contracts again as soon as your mouse no longer hovers over it.

You can expand or shrink the height that is devoted to your ‘network’ space in the same way.

Managing authorizations: photo books

In previous articles, we discussed the default authorization settings, the customization of these settings according to each of your contacts and how to act regarding file sharing..

In this article we will focus on the concept of sharing photo books..

 

PHOTO BOOK AUTHORIZATION

You know it is possible to share a photo book linked to an album. This can be done by going to the bottom of the column that appears to the right of the photo album viewing area.

There are 2 levels of authorization:

  1. the right to view: by checking this option, you authorize contacts with access to your album to browse your photo book at leisure with full screen viewing display for more comfort and pleasure
  2. the right to order: by checking this option, you authorize contacts with access to your album to order your photo book and have it delivered to their home without having to contact you.
    Of course, you may check this option only if you have already authorized the viewing of the photo book.

These permissions only apply to contacts who have access to the album to which the photo book is attached.

IMPORTANT:

All contacts who have access to your album will have the same rights to your photo book, regardless of the authorizations applied to the album or the contacts themselves.

This means that if a contact is not allowed to order photo prints, this restriction does not apply to photo books where order rights are open.

Managing authorizations: using folders

In the 2 preceding articles, you saw how to manage your default authorizations and how to personalize them for each of your contacts.

In this article we will explore how to manage sharing with folders.

 

CONTROL SHARING WITH FOLDERS CONTAINING ALBUMS

Folders are a useful tool for classifying and organizing your media library while improving your productivity at the same time:

  • By applying certain preferences to several albums at once
  • By centralizing access to the sharing options for all the albums that they contain

The second point is what we will be talking about.
  To access these options, click on the folder’s “ACTION” button and choose “Folder properties.”

  In the window that appears, click on the share tab. The albums contained in the folder are classified by type: PRIVATE, SHARED or PUBLIC. You can control the authorizations according to the type.

SHARED ALBUMS () :

 

The whole authorizations menu is available for each contact on the albums that have been shared with them.

If you click on a contact, the list of albums they have access to appears on the right side of the window.

You can modify their access rights to the album or albums of your choice

PUBLIC ALBUMS () :

 

The whole authorizations menu is available for each album.

You can modify the authorizations offered for each one. They will apply to all of your contacts.

PRIVATE ALBUMS () :

 

As their name indicates, these albums aren’t shared, and as a result no setting options are available.

  Remember to confirm your settings so that they will be remembered and saved. They will be applied immediately.

REMEMBER: there are no share settings on the folders themselves since you do not share the folder, just the albums it contains.

Managing authorizations: Personalizing authorizations for each contact

We looked at default authorizations in a previous article. Sometimes these default settings don’t suit your needs, so it’s necessary to refine and personalize them for each contact.

In this article, we will show you how to do it.

 

PERSONALIZING AUTHORIZATIONS FOR EACH CONTACT(1)

This can be done in 2 ways:

  • by using the “SHARING” tab in the album properties window:

    Check or uncheck the authorizations that you think apply contact by contact.

  • by using the “Albums shared” tab on the contact card (in your contacts book):

    Modify the sharing options the way you want, album by album.

(1) These changes take effect immediately on the sharing that has been done. They do not change the default authorizations settings in “My account” or the preferences selected for each of your contacts

DEFAULT AUTHORIZATION SETTING(1)

  2. In the “Contacts book” section accessible from the “TOOLS” menu:

    When you select a contact and double click on it, you directly access the “Properties” tab of the latter.By checking “Activate the contact’s preferences” you access a list of options. Among them you will find the default authorizations granted to this contact (cf. the red arrows in the image below).

  3. In the “SHARING” section of Album Properties, accessible by double-clicking on the album itself:

    When you choose to make the album accessible to all of your contacts (“RESTRICT ACCESS” in OFF mode), the selected sharing options are valid for all contacts, whatever the preferences specified for each one.

(1) Aside from the 3rd point, the default settings do not change the sharing that has already been done. They only affect the sharing done after their validation.
