View the shares of a form

There all,

since a few days, when I try to share a form it is actually shared but I cannot visualize the shares, therefore to be sure it is shared I have to ask the person because I cannot view all the persons sharing it.

Thank you for your support,
Best, Natascia

Could you also provide us a screenshot of the following (for better understanding of your issue):

  • The screenshot from the admin account
  • The screenshot from the shared account

Maybe you could share it through a private message if you feel that it should be dealt confidentially.

Dear Kal_Lam

the issue is apparently now solved, meaning that who shared the form can now visualize that the form is shared. However, it happened several times.
Kindly, have a look, this is the account who wanted to share the form (after added full options to the username “notaalex” this could not be visualized):

and this is the account of notaalex who actually could have access to the form (but without the person who shared being informed of this because of what explained above):

Could this happen when who is sharing is not the owner of the form?

Thank you,
Best

So you mean, natasciapalmieri provided full access to manitese_guinea_bissau. When manitese_guinea_bissau provides access to notaalex, notaalex is able to view the survey project but is not seen by the original user natasciapalmieri user natasciapalmieri's sharing permission?

Did i get you correctly? Kindly please correct me if i am wrong.

YES and neither seen by manitese_guinea_bissau who provided the full access

thanks

YES and neither seen by manitese_guinea_bissau who provided the full access

Some issues are still running.
Please, have a look to this:


but also the username burkina_manitese has access to the same form although it does not appear.
Right now if I try to add share permission, I cannot see/visualize whether or not the username added has been effectively added.
Hope this is clear,

thanks Natascia

OK i now get your issue correctly. Let’s assume you have 3 user (user_A, user_B and user_C). user_A is an admin user and provides full access to user_B. user_B then provides full access to user_C.

So if you are viewing the sharing permissions from user_A you should be able to view all the three user accounts i.e. user_A as owner along with user_B and user_C with the access provided.

But when you login to user_B, you will only see user_A as owner along with user_B with the access provided.

Similarly, if you login to user_C, you will only see user_A as owner along with user_C with the access provided.

Note: This was restricted due to security reasons. Also please be informed that KoBoToolbox is bringing a new feature called Manage project within sharing-permissions shortly i.e. maybe by the end of this week or early next week.

There, if you select Manage project under the sharing-permissions the user account being provided the sharing-permissions feature should be able to view all the other user accounts i.e. suppose if you go back with the conditions provided above and provide ‘Manage project’ for user_B, user_B should also able to see all the user accounts like user_A (who is an admin user). Similarly, if user_C is provided with Manage project, user_C like user_B and user_A should also be able to see all the users being provided with sharing-permissions.

Will let you know when this feature is available with KoBoToolbox.

OK Kal_Lam,

I see, thanks a lot and waiting for the new feature!

Best, Natascia
