What is map sharing in vMAP?
You can share your mapviews with others by providing its URL. This can be useful if you want non-vMAP users to view and check your mapview immediately.
For example, if you have a mapview with branch store locations you can embed the URL directly on your website, and you can update the URL accordingly. This way the visitors can view the up-to-date mapviews with your latest store distributions.
How do I share mapview with others?
Click button on the toolbar at the bottom of the vMAP main page to open the Share map window.
Step 1. Configure the password for sharing map link
PASSWORD PROTECTED means that the shared map link is private and only users with the password can access it. Input password and confirm it by typing it in a second time.
PUBLIC means that the shared map link is publicly available and the mapview can be accessed by any user with the link.
Step 2. Configure the time limit for the shared map link
