# Working Collaboratively

Mergin Maps makes working collaboratively safe and easy.

In this tutorial you'll learn a few different ways of sharing your project with your colleagues:

# Share a project with a specific Mergin Maps user

Your projects are stored in your workspace. If you want to share a project with someone else, they need to be invited to your workspace.

Here, we will invite Jack to the trees-and-hedges project.

  1. Navigate to app.merginmaps.com and sign in
    Sign in to Mergin Maps

  2. Now, you should see the Mergin Maps dashboard.

  3. Select Members from the left panel and click on Add People
    Add people in Members tab in Mergin Maps

  4. Now you will see the invite form:
    Invite teammates to workspace form

    • Enter the emails of people you want to invite to the workspace
    • Choose if they should be invited as members or guests. Members have access to all projects in the workspace, while guests may access only selected projects.
    • Specify the projects that will be shared with the guests by selecting the project's name in Invite to projects
    • Set the Permission in projects
  5. Click on Invite to send an invitation.

An email with a link will be sent to the recipients. After they accept the invitation, they will become members or guests of your workspace.

In this case, we invited Jack as a guest to the trees-and-hedges project. Since he has the write permission, he can now add or edit features in this project through Mergin Maps, Mergin Maps mobile app and QGIS.


Users can be invited to a Mergin Maps project also from the project's settings in app.merginmaps.com. Detailed steps can be found in How to add users to a project.


It is possible to have access to multiple workspaces. You may need to navigate to the appropriate workspace to see a project that is shared with you.

# Share a project with many users

If you wish to share a project with more than a handful of users, this method may save you some time.

These steps should be carried out from the Mergin Maps dashboard.

  1. Click My projects then click trees-and-hedges
    Select a project in Projects tab

  2. Click in the location bar of the browser:
    Mergin Maps project URL in web browser

  3. Copy the location:
    Copy project URL

  4. Send this link to the people you wish to share the project with.

    When they click the link, they will initially be prompted to sign in or register with Mergin Maps. Once logged in, they will have the option to Request access:
    Request Access to a private project

  5. Check your dashboard for project access requests. Accept or deny requests accordingly.

    We always recommend verifying the requester's Mergin Maps username before accepting access requests.
