Access iTOL shared projects

Use this form to access publicly shared projects of any iTOL user, or to access a privately shared project. Type the iTOL user login or shared project key into the field below and click 'Display shared projects'. You can view and export any tree in these projects, but you cannot modify them in any way. If you are logged into your own iTOL account, you can also copy shared trees into your own projects.

Public sharing

You can share any project in your workspaces. Use the "Toggle public project sharing" function in the project options menu to change the shared status. Publicly shared projects will have the sharing icon displayed () in front of their title.

Send your iTOL login to your collaborators, and they can type it into the box above to see all your publicly shared projects. They will be able to view and export the trees, but not modify or delete them.

All your publicly shared projects can also be accessed through a simple URL:

Private sharing

If you want to share a particular project privately, and do no want it to show in the list of your publicly shared projects, select 'Private project sharing' in the project options menu. A popup window will be displayed where you can generate a new sharing key for the project. Privately shared projects will have the eye icon displayed () in front of their title.

Send the sharing key to your collaborators, and they can type it into the box on the top of this page to access the project. Privately shared projects can also be accessed through a simple URL:

https://itol.embl.de/shared/sharingKey

To disable private access to a project, select 'Private project sharing' option again, and click the 'Disable private sharing' button.
