The Snapshot on the Web tab of the Share dialog when signed in to your Altium account
The Snapshot on the Web tab allows you to capture a snapshot of the select project in its current state, which is made available for viewing and commenting, providing for wider collaboration with others through the Web. This can be useful for an on-the-fly design review, sharing a particular design milestone, or even stimulating contextual discussion. The Snapshot on the Web tab is available on each iteration of the Share dialog, meaning any user who is currently viewing a project within Altium NEXUS can share a snapshot of that design – irrespective of whether or not they have shared access to that design themselves.
This iteration of the Share dialog is accessed by selecting the Snapshot on the Web tab on the left-hand side of the dialog.
Share with specific people – click the Share with specific people control to switch the sharing mode (for sharing a design snapshot) to allow you to share with one or more specific people. The invitation will be sent via email. Recipients will have access to view the design snapshot through the Web-based Altium 365 Platform Interface. Such a design snapshot is available permanently through the platform and commenting on the design is possible with this level of sharing. After entering the full email of a person with whom you want to share the snapshot and press Enter, click the button. The project itself is packaged into a Zip archive using Altium NEXUS's Project Packager, then uploaded to the Altium 365 platform. Confirmation of upload is provided once the process completes.
- Share by email – once the Share with specific people option has been clicked, use this field to enter the email of individuals you would like to share this project with.
- Advanced Settings (available for projects that are not under version control of an on-site server) – provides access to the Sharing Settings dialog for specifying the re-sharing and download rights for users that the design snapshot is to be shared with.
Generate link – click the button to generate the link to the design snapshot. In the background, the project itself is packaged into a Zip archive using the Project Packager tool of Altium NEXUS. Once the link is ready, click the button to copy it and share it with the required people as needed. On using the link, a recipient will be taken to an instance of Altium 365 Viewer, on the main altium.com site, with the design processed, loaded, and available for access for 48 hours.
