When users find resources, surveys or playlists they think their peers would find interesting or useful they can choose to reshare them.

Only users with the Share article (engage/article:share) capability can reshare Engage content. This allows Site Administrators to limit who is able to share resources, surveys and playlists if required.

Follow these steps to reshare a resource:

  1. Click the share icon () in the information panel on the right-hand side of the screen. Note that when the resource creator clicks this icon they will instead see the resource settings.
  2. Start typing the name of the user or workspace with which you would like to share the resource.
  3. Select the user or workspace from the dropdown list of suggestions. If a resource or playlist has already been shared with a user or workspace then that user/workspace will not be available to select.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to add more users and workspaces.
  5. If you accidentally select the wrong option or change your mind you can remove a user or workspace by clicking the next to that selection.
  6. Click Done to reshare the resource with the selected users and workspaces.

Resharing a resource with a workspace and a user.

Resource viewers can only reshare public resources.

Viewing resharers and recipients

In the Reshare pop-up window you can also click Show to see a list of the users that the resource has already been shared with.

Additionally, you can click on the number under the share icon to see which users have reshared the resource.
