Share a notebook
You can share notebooks from your default Home workspace to work on them together with other users. Users with edit access can work directly on the shared version of the notebook. Users with view access can view the shared version of the notebook but must clone it to their file system to edit its content.
To access the shared notebooks, select Shared with you on the left-side menu of the Home page.
