Collaborating in Neptune

As an experiment tracking hub, Neptune provides several features for enabling knowledge sharing and collaboration among members of your data science team.

To share a view on a project or any of its parts, you simply copy and paste the URL to it.

About Access to Workspaces and Projects

  • If the project is private, access to the shared content is restricted to users who have access to the project.

  • If the project is public, anyone who has access to the Internet has access to the shared content.

For more information about user permissions in workspaces and projects, see user roles.
