Sharing flipbooks with account readers

Learn how to share your publications with teammates.

In this article, you're going to see how easy it is to share your flipbooks with your teammates using our custom feature called Readers only.

This feature is different from all of our features because the reader will have a special tab with all the flipbooks that they have been invited to read.

By utilizing Readers only, your workflow will be simplified because you won't have to manually add the email addresses or import a CSV file every time you want to share your work with an audience. You only need to do it once. Keep in mind that when adding readers from a CSV file you can import up to 500 email addresses at once.

Using Readers only will allow you to share a flipbook only with the people that you want to read your flipbooks. It is very useful when you constantly want to share your creations with your colleagues or if you have a list of readers.

If you'd like to have the Readers only feature available, check out our Enterprise plan.

As per a recent update, the flipbooks shared with readers have a different URL than the public flipbooks. They now open in the app, and for this reason, the readers need to be logged in to access the flipbooks. The changes apply to flipbooks shared prior to the update as well. The old URLs redirect to the new ones, and a log-in is required.

We have also introduced a branding feature for the flipbooks shared with account readers. You can access it from Branding -> Brand profile -> Personalization. The feature is called Elements color and it allows you to modify the color of the elements (text and icons) displayed in the header of the publications from Team flipbooks. This feature doesn’t show up in your public profile, and it can only be seen in private publications.

The invited people will receive an email where they'll have to accept the invitation you've sent them. After they've accepted your invitation, they'll be able to access the shared flipbooks in the Team flipbooks tab, from the Read section.

Your invited readers won't have access to your other flipbooks and won't be able to see any details from your account. 

Keep in mind that you can also share multiple flipbooks as a folder through a private link with your readers. Moreover, you can check how your readers interacted with the flipbooks you've shared with them through the statistics Flipsnack offers.

Important: Because this is a custom feature, you can get in touch with us on our live chat in order to get more info on it, the pricing, and other questions that you might have. Our agents will be more than glad to help!
