BlogTips & Tricks5 Tips to Successfully Collaborate on the SimScale Platform

Did you know that the SimScale platform offers different ways for you and your team to interact and collaborate on your simulation projects?

Here are 5 tips on how to make the most out of it!

1. Project Sharing

To share your simulation project with another SimScale user, simply click on the  “share simulation project” symbol (share simulation project icon) next to the project title. This will then open a dialogue box in a pop-up window. From here, you can easily share your project with one of your colleagues, a client, or a member of the SimScale support team who can assist you in successfully completing your simulation.


2. Private vs. Public Projects

Public projects can be seen and copied by all SimScale users, while private projects are only visible to you. Only those with permission can view or copy your private projects.

If you are a Community Plan user, your projects are automatically shared with the SimScale user community as part of the Public Project Library. A Professional subscription allows you the benefit of creating private projects, which you can share with those you choose.


3. Can view vs. Can copy

The sharing mechanism is permission-based and includes “can view” and “can copy” permissions.

The “can view” permission setting allows the project to be viewed, but assets cannot be downloaded or copied.

The “can copy” setting allows viewing, copying and downloading of the assets of your shared projects.


4. Sharing Projects with the Support Team

Checking the “share with support” box will grant the SimScale support team access to your project so that they can assist you. To make the support experience as efficient as possible, explain your project in detail and include the type of help you are requesting. A support team member will then have a look at your project and help you successfully complete it.


5. Adding a Message
