Milkymap allows you to collaborate with other users in your account in multiple ways. Either through Sharing, Exporting, or by using Comments.
Sharing & Exporting Maps
You can ask other users to review your work by sharing a Milkymap with them. You’ll be able to share it in different formats (through a Sharable link, Excel, PDF, or Image file). You can add a personalized message, where you can highlight specific points you’d like the receiver to review. Sharing is only available for users in your organisation’s Milkymap account. Find out more about sharing in this article.
You can also share your work with others by exporting your Milkymaps. This will allow you to also share the file with people outside of your organisation’s Milkymap Galaxy account. Exporting a Milkymap will create an offline copy of it. Exporting Milkymaps is described in this article.
Using Comments to Receive Feedback
Using Milkymap, you can also generate feedback from other users within your organisation directly through the platform.
Go to the Milkymap you’d like to receive comments on by clicking it. You can only request comments for Milkymaps you own.
Press the text bubble icon in the top menu bar
Select the user or users you’d like to receive comments from.

Press the ‘Comment’ icon again to open the dropdown menu
Click ‘Open Comments’ here to see all the comments that have been added to your Milkymap. Either scroll through your map to see all comments where they’re added or use the Comment list on the left-hand side to look at them all at the same time.
Press ‘Close Comments’ in the same dropdown menu in which you’ve just opened them once you’re done reviewing the comments you’ve received.
