Document Sharing Question

matthew_stacymatthew_stacy Member Posts: 270 PRO
I firmly believe that document sharing is profoundly powerful and potentially overshadows Onshape's impressive modeling capabilities.  That said, I have not collaborated with other Onshape users nearly enough. 

Can anyone tell me why the share permissions shown in this screenshot (recipient email address redacted for privacy) don't seem to be working?

The recipient was not able to open this document.  I believe that he has an Onshape EDU account (confirmation pending).  My account is STANDARD (not PUBLIC).  What am I missing here.  My intent is to allow the recipient to open/comment/edit within this document.

    I don't see why this would not work. If the recipient's account is actually FREE he still should be able to open the document, but not able to edit. If you file a bug from this document we might be able to learn more.
