Basic principles

 
Teamwork and collaboration is the new functionality introduced in Dr.Explain 5.0. The collaboration feature might be useful not only to team of several writers but to single writers as well.
 
To start using the collaboration feature you must create an account at tiwri.com (more details about Tiwri service).
 
As soon as you've created an account at tiwri.com, you're able to create shared projects either via Tiwri web interface or right in the Dr.Explain application. Then you can share the project with other users whose e-mail you know. You can create either a blank project or upload an existing Dr.Explain project to Tiwri and make it shared.
 
All operations with shared projects are performed in the Dr.Explain application. To modify a certain element of the project you must perform Edit command. In most cases the Edit command is performed automatically once you've started editing the element, e.g. start typing in the editor. In the same moment the element gets locked on the Tiwri server and nobody will be able to modify it until you commit or revert your changes to Tiwri server.
To see your changes other users must perform Update command in Dr.Explain.
 
To see all the changes in the project use Project history function.
 
Note: to be able to work with Collaboration function in most cases you need active Internet connection to send and receive data from Tiwri server.
 
The most important teamwork functions and commands are grouped in Collaboration menu.
