HOW TO

1.
Click the Manage Map button to open the Manage Map screen.If you have no Map users in your account (other than yourself) your screen will look like this. This means that only people logging in with your user details can access this map. As such, it is good practice to create at least one other map user account for your class to use to access a map.

LAYER PERMISSIONS: When you add a user to a map they have read/write access to all 5 layers of the map. You can restrict write access to particular layers by clicking on a layer button to disable layer write permission for this user.In this example anyone logging in under the student username would be able to read all 5 layers, but would only be able to add and edit pins on layers 1 and 2.
