Sharing flipbooks with readers only

Learn how to share your publications with readers only and understand how they will look to them.

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 other 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 enables 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 when you have a list of readers.

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

Note: This is a custom feature, so you will have to get in touch with us on our live chat to get more information about pricing or about any other questions that you might have. Our agents will be more than glad to help!

Warning: The flipbooks shared with readers have a different URL than the public flipbooks. They open in the app, so the readers need to be logged in to access the flipbooks.

We also have a branding feature for the flipbooks shared with account readers. 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. You can access it from Branding -> Brand profile -> Personalization. This feature doesn’t show up in your public profile, and it can only be seen in private publications.


How Readers only works:

Adding readers to your list is quite simple. From the main dashboard, go to the Settings page, in the lower left corner, then you have to choose the Readers tab and click Add readers


There you can add the email addresses of the people that you want to invite. 


When you choose the flipbook that you want to share with your readers, simply select Private, then Readers only from the Visibility section. You can choose to share with all your readers, or you can type an email or a group name. Once done, click on Publish.


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.
