Which Sharing Method is best for me?

See below for a brief description and the main benefits for the multiple ways you can share sims within SimTutor, and find the one that best for you!

Individual Sim Sharing

The most straightforward method of sharing one sim to a learner. Accessed on the dashboard per sim, just click share and type in the email address and you are good to go!

Benefits:

  • Fast and easy to use
  • Can invite a list of users at once
  • User will automatically be sent an email from training@simtutor.com with a link they can click to access the Sim
  • First time users set up their own passwords or, if they already have a password, simply login
  • Learner is taken directly to Sim
  • Only users you invite have access

Group Sharing

Found in the manage Sim access tab, group sharing is a great way to get multiple sims to one or many learners. Set up your group, add your sims, then invite your users!

Benefits:

  • Can invite a list of users at once
  • Can invite said users to one or many sims in one go
  • User will automatically be sent an email from training@simtutor.com with a link they can click to access the Sim
  • First time users set up their own passwords or, if they already have a password, simply login
  • Only users you invite have access

Forwardable Individual Sim Link

A new, fast and easy way to get Sims to your learners - the forwardable sim link allows you to simply copy and paste a permanent URL and distribute this to your learners. This can be shared in a variety of ways, from an email to a link of a shared desktop.

Benefits:

  • Very fast and easy to use
  • Easily distribute link to multiple users
  • First time users set up their own email/passwords or, if they already have an account, simply login
  • Learner is taken directly to the shared Sim
  • Great for sharing to learners who can forward the link onto other learners
  • Allows you to send an email from your recognised email address

Forwardable Group Link

Much like the sim link mentioned above, this allows you to share sims via a permanent URL link - this time for groups! This means you can now share multiple sims instantly with all the ease of this new feature.

Benefits:

  • Very fast and easy to use
  • Easily distribute link to multiple users
  • Share multiple sims with ease
  • First time users set up their own email/passwords or, if they already have an account, simply login
  • Great for sharing to learners who can forward the link onto other learners
  • Allows you to send an email from your recognised email address

Bulk User Upload

Would you like to add many learners yourself, giving them their own username/email and passwords? With the bulk upload method, you can download .csv template file, fill it out with your learners’ details, then upload it directly to SimTutor and we’ll do the rest! Each learner will be set up with their own accounts with the details you provided in the spreadsheet.

Benefits:

  • Fast way to add multiple user accounts in one go
  • Ability to add said users into existing groups on .csv upload
  • Only users you create have access to the Sims you share
  • Great for when the learner may not have an email address
  • Secure - you control the user’s details from full names, usernames, passwords and more
  • Allows you to send an introductory email from your recognised email address

Adding Individual User to account

A very simple way of setting up a user into your account. You input the user’s details such as the user name, password, and more, and that’s it - You’ve successfully made a user account! Used for when you have one, or just a few users you need to add yourself into your account.

Benefits:

  • Simple way of adding one user into your account
  • Only users you create have access to the Sims you share
  • Great for when the learner may not have an email address
  • You control the user’s details from full names, usernames, passwords and more.

Folders of Sims

Have a bunch of Sims and wish to organise and share them? Folders of Sims is a great solution. You can set up as many folders as you’d like, add Sims to each of them, then simply add your users into these folders for instant access to the Sims within. You can also link these folders of sims into groups of users for an even more efficient way of distributing multiple sims to multiple users.

Benefits:

  • An efficient way to share multiple groups of sims to a user or group
  • Only users you add have access to the Folders of Sims you share
  • Efficient distribution of sims where you have a company hierarchy, and different levels of access are required to groups of sims
