Projector Sharing is available as a new Settings option for iOS devices running Projector that meet the following requirements:
- You must be running iOS 10+
- You must be signed into iCloud with the owning Apple ID.
- You must be signed into Projector with the authorized PCO User.
If the above requirements are met - you will see the Projector Sharing option as shown below:
Selecting the Projector Sharing option will display a new Settings view (called Projector Sharing) which allows you to:
- Manage Projector Sharing
- Manage Subscriptions (including the Projector Subscription)
- Disable Projector Sharing (contact WorshipStorm Support before doing that)
Manage Projector Sharing
This option is the primary gateway into Projector Sharing workflow. Selecting it will cause the native Apple CloudKit Sharing UI to display:
The Sharing UI lets you know that you will be sharing the iCloud database associated with the owning Apple ID. This is given the descriptive name WorshipStorm Projector Sharing. It also shows you the name and email of the owning Apple ID.
Initial Sharing with other Apple IDs
The screenshot above will be seen the very first time you Manage Projector Sharing, since no additional Apple IDs have been invited yet to join WorshipStorm Projector Sharing.
Important: you must invite Apple IDs to join Projector Sharing (not PCO Users). Often, the contact information (email, phone number) for a given PCO User will be the same as their Apple ID contact information, but that's not guaranteed. You are actually inviting the device signed-in with the invited Apple ID, not the PCO User. Permissions to the shared iCloud data will be restricted (or not) based on the PCO User that is logged-in to Projector, which maintains the security model that you have setup in Planning Center Services.
You can choose which method you would like to use to share Projector. We'll illustrate the Message workflow here.
1) Click the Message icon and the Message UI will appear:
2) Type in the Apple ID contact information (phone number or email address) that you wish to share Projector with. If the owners of the Apple IDs are in your local Contacts, then you will see their names appear as you type:
3) Once you have finished adding the user(s) Apple IDs that you want to share Projector with, tap the Message "send" button. You will then hear the familiar "send" sound and the first step of Projector Sharing (sharing with others) is complete:
Changes to Sharing
If you select Manage Projector Sharing after the Initial Sharing step, you will see all of the Apple IDs that you have shared Projector with, and the status of sharing (if they have accepted the sharing or not):
You can then add more Apple IDs to share Projector with, remove any existing Apple IDs from sharing Projector, or stop sharing with all previously invited Apple IDs.
