Controlling access to visualizations and stories with different account types

Free accounts: The default

If you have a Free account, all your projects are private until published by default. No one can see your visualizations unless you publish them.

When you publish a project you will be able to choose whether or not to include a Duplicate and edit button. If you choose "Allow anyone to duplicate this project and data", it will display a Duplicate and edit button on the showcase page for that project. If you don't tick this, it will not include the button to duplicate.

Business accounts: Share visualizations with colleagues

If you have a Business account, you can share unpublished projects with other members of your organization who have Flourish accounts. Just send them a link to the project.

Business accounts: Password-protect your projects

If you have a Business account, you can also publish your projects behind a password. This is useful for sharing them with colleagues who don’t have a Flourish account or people outside of your company, like customers.

To do this, in the visualization editor click Export & publish, choose Publish to share and embed and select the password option. Your published visualization will then be safely encrypted until the correct password is entered.
