One of the main features of Overleaf is the ability to share projects and collaborate on them with other users.

[edit] Number of collaborators allowed

The amount of collaborators you are allowed to share a project with will depend on the plan you are part of. See here to find out how many collaborators you are allowed, or to upgrade your subscription.

[edit] Making a project public

Making a project public will allow anyone who has the URL of the project to access it. This is great for:

  • Letting people see your project when getting help debugging errors
  • Letting people see and use a template or piece of code you have written
  • Letting people see how a certain project was created

To make a project public, simply:

  • Click on the Share button at the top right corner of the project


  • Click Turn on link sharing


  • The shareable read-and-edit and read-only URLs will be displayed


To let someone access the project, simply send them the URL of the project.

[edit] Sharing a project with collaborators

Sharing a project with collaborators is more powerful, as the only people who will be allowed to access the project are people who you have invited to collaborate on the project. To share a project with someone:

  • Click on the Share button at the top right corner of the project


  • Enter the email address of the account you would like to share the project with:


  • Choose whether you would like the collaborator to have read only access, or whether they will be allowed to edit the project.
  • Click Share

Your collaborator will now receive an email inviting them to join the project. Once they have logged into their account, they will be able to accept the invite and collaborate on the project. The Share project window will update to show that they have accepted the request and joined the project. If they do not receive an email:

  • Make sure the email address you are using is correct
  • Try resending the email by clicking Resend in the Share project window
  • Check the spam folder of the email address as sometimes emails can end up in there by mistake.
