Other MLM Impact Users

MLM Impact is a collaborative platform that’s designed to let you share and disseminate your work. This means you are free to invite your peers to view, comment, download, or edit collaboratively in real time, depending on the settings that you select. You can also choose to make your work publically available. In addition, you may also grant your team members project access rights that are equivalent to yours, including the ability to transfer your project ownership to a different account. Some of these collaborative features display your publicly accessible profile information to the other users you’ve invited to collaborate.
