Consult these links to find out how best to collaborate with others using EndNote. The first document comes from the EndNote X7 Little How-To Book and the second provides an overview table comparing the different ways to collaborate.
It is possible to share a group of references with others, perhaps those with whom you are collaborating.
Any individual you share your group with must have an EndNote Online account and email address. Access to a desktop version of EndNote is not required and you can nominate if colleagues are to have 'read only' access or 'read & write' access. Note: sharing of file attachments is not allowed however links to documents/articles can be shared.
1. Click the manage sharing button next to the group you wish to share
2. Enter the email address of the people you wish to share the group with. Note: the email address must match the email address they use for their own EndNote Online account.
3. Select whether your colleagues will have 'read only' or 'read & write' access (Read and write access allows users to add and delete references to this group)
4. Click 'Apply'
Icons will be displayed next to groups that you have shared. Groups that have been shared with you will display an icon to indicate if you have permission to add and delete records in a group.
Working with Word using CWYW and EndNote Online is possible when sharing a group of references.
Users who only have access to EndNote Online will need to download the CWYW plugin from EndNote Online
Users who have EndNote desktop loaded will need to change the setting within Word to tell it to access the EN Online library rather than the desktop library.
Within the EndNote toolbar in Word select Preferences and the tab called Applications
Choose EndNote Web from the dropdown menu and select OK.
