    Hi Ryan,

    If you have a team account, this happens automatically and you just tell your team members what map to open. One of the many benefits.

    If you're working with an individual account, the easiest way to do this is to give them the 4 digit map ID. ex: sartopo.com/m/XXXX the XXXX is that Id. Then they would be able to open that map in their app, upper left 3 bars, bookmarks, the plus icon, though they would need a password to write to it.

    Or, they can open the long URL on the website (including viewing the website on their phone), and if they're signed in, it will create a bookmark that syncs to the app.

    Sorry, there's a disconnect here because we just developed new features, and for various reasons needed to roll them out to the site before the app. Long URL support is coming to the app really soon, where you'll be able to just message the URL to the team and it will click through to the app.

    Give it a few more weeks and this will all be resolved to the point where you cant print a QR code with that URL in it, they can scan the QR code, and they'll get update level access to the map.

    All the best,
    Rom

    Thank you. Is there information out there to learn more sartopo. I have a
    Volunteer Technical Rescue around a 100 member team. We are learning as we
    go would love to know on how we can use it from the command base to the
    field.
