The previous Projector Sharing article described how the authorized PCO User can invite other AppleIDs to join in Projector Sharing.
When the Projector users in your PCO Services Organization login to Projector after the Projector subscription has been purchased for the Organization, they may see the following Projector Sharing popup:
This popup mentions two things:
- A Projector subscription has already been purchased by the authorized PCO User for your organization.
- The user is running on an iOS device that is not signed-in with the owning Apple ID - their Apple ID is not the Projector "share owner".
The user should just click Done and let theauthorized PCO User (shown in the illustration above as 'Butch Home') know that they wish to share Projector within the PCO Organization.
Note: if the logged-in PCO User does not have permissions to lookup other PCO Users, then they will not see the name of the authorized PCO User for security reasons (Projector cannot lookup the authorized PCO User on their behalf).
Once the authorized PCO User has sent out the invitations to join Projector sharing, the user can simply click on the link that was provided. We will again illustrate the Message workflow to accept the share:
The user accepting the share will have received the share link in their Messages app:
Once the user clicks on the link, they will receive a prompt to "accept" the share (by clicking Open):
Accepting the share will launch Projector on the user's device and (after a moment), the following share acceptance popup will be seen in Projector:
Projector will no longer receive the Projector Sharing popup when running on that device. If the user has multiple devices signed-in with the same Apple ID that was invited to join Projector Sharing, the invitation must be opened on each of those devices as well (if the device is running Projector), so that the Projector app will know that the user (Apple ID) has joined Projector Sharing.
Note: If the user that is accepting the Projector Sharing invitation link sent via email is not using the native Apple Mail app on their device (and is running an app like Gmail), the sharing invitation link will not open correctly - it will open up the browser on their device to the iCloud web site, which will not result in proper acceptance of the invitation. Because of this uncertainty, using Messages as the means to invite is a more sure option for sending the invites. Just be sure that those being invited have Messages enabled.
