Visibility is managed at two levels on the marketplace in order to determine who can access your data offerings, allowing you to adjust settings to meet your needs as closely as possible.
Sharing on the marketplace
Access to platform members
You may choose to make your data available only to those participants who are authenticated on the platform. In that case, the offering is visible in marketplace search results for registered members, who can then contact you for acquisition.
Visibility from outside the platform
Increase your offering's visibility by disseminating it on your site, in your newsletters, and on social networks. A preview of the offering can be seen by anyone who knows the URL.
You may limit access to your data offering to selected platform members. Those people can check your offering directly from the Explore menu, or via a link in an automatically generated e-mail message. If they are not yet platform members, they will be invited to register to access your offering.
Several options are available for limiting access to invited guests or partners:
- Invitation by mail - You may invite one or several contacts by entering their e-mail addresses, separated by a comma ( , ).
- Invitation by organization - Select the organization from the drop-down list. All the members in that organization will have access to your offering.
- Invitation by group - You may limit your offering's visibility to a specific group to which you belong.
