Internal Share

Sharing microapps from one library to another is a great way to give users in other libraries access microapps to prevent rework and duplicate microapp updates.  Sharing microapps between libraries can be done in one of two ways; within the library and within the microapp viewer. 

Share within the library

  1. Access the library your microapp lives in. 
  2. Click the share button. blobid0.jpg
  3. Click the Internal tab on the resulting share window, then click Share to library.blobid2.jpg
  4. Choose the Library and Category you intend to share your microapp with. Confirm your selection by clicking the blue check box. mceclip0.png
  5. To share with multiple libraries, click the Share to Library button again. If you are not seeing a new line appear, ensure you have clicked the blue check box next to your prior entry. mceclip1.png
  6. Microapps are shared as soon as the blue check box is clicked. Once you are done adding libraries, you can close the share window.

Share from the Microapp Viewer

  1. Click on the cover of the microapp to enter the microapp viewer.blobid5.jpg

Viewing Shared Microapps

If a microapp has been shared between libraries, you will see an arrow icon next to the left of the Last Published notification below the microapp cover. Hovering over this icon will indicate which library the original microapp lives in.

Options found under the tri-dot microapp menu will be different for microapps shared from other libraries.

Important notes

  • A shared microapp can not be edited in the library that it is shared to. To edit a shared microapp you must edit the source microapp in the library it is shared from.
  • "Duplicate", "Download" and "Archive" will not be available for shared microapps.
  • Insights for a shared microapp will be for all uses of the microapp in all libraries.
