Share Missions

There are multiple ways you can share a Mission...

  • Use 1 of the Share buttons.

  • Create a subscription (schedule). See the Schedule Missions article to learn about this method.

  • Send via email.

Share Buttons

  1. From the Missions landing page, select the Mission you want to share and select the Share icon or Send via Email icon.

    Share buttons on Missions

    Or, within a Mission, select Share at the top right-hand corner of the screen.

    Share button on Mission Summary page
  2. The Share Mission window displays.

  3. You can either share a Mission with specific people by inviting them one at a time, or you can set your Mission to Broadcast to Permitted Users.

If Broadcast to Permitted Users is set to Can View, the Mission is visible to anyone in your organization on the Homepage if they have access to at least 1of the datasets used for the Mission.

Once you share a Mission with a group of people, they receive a summary email. This introduces them to the Mission that you've shared.


As the owner of the mission, you can handle the permission rights at a user level. This means that certain people can have edit permissions, while others have read-only (Can View) permissions.

Mission Permissions

Users that don’t have access to the underlying dataset of a page aren’t able to see any content on that page. You'll see a notification for Dataset access required. Select Request to send a request for acces to the dataset admin. AAI sends an email to each admin of that dataset.

An alternative way to share a Mission is to comment (@mention) your colleague in the comment box. Read Collaboration through Missions to understand more about the comment function in Auto Insights.

Default Access Setting

When you create a new Mission, the default access setting is private. Until you decide to share your Mission, it’s only available to you (the creator).

Request Access

If you encounter any pages within a Mission that say, "You do not have access to the underlying dataset for this page," you can request access. Select Request access to send an email requesting access to the dataset owner.

Creators, Editors, and Viewers of a Mission can also request access on behalf of users when they share a Mission. This request triggers an email to the dataset owner requesting access for the specified users.

Share with Someone Who Doesn’t Have an Account

Select 1 of the 2 share buttons described at the beginning of this article. Enter your teammate's email address. If the email address is from an admin-approved domain, the option to Share with new user displays. Select Share with new user, select permission level, then select Share.

Share with a new user

Next, Auto Insights sends the user you invited an email about the Mission and a link to create an account. If your Org Admin is moderating invites, they will have to approve the invitation first. To check the status of invited users, go to your profile icon > Users.

Users page link

The Users page lists Active and Pending users. You can also invite a new user from this page without sharing a Mission. To do so, select Invite new user.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I do if my teammate doesn't have access to the dataset?

As part of the invitation process, you can request dataset access to specific datasets on behalf of the people you invite. These requests go out to the dataset owners, and it is up to them to approve or deny the new users' access.

What level of Mission permission can I give a user?

  • Editors or Owners of a Mission can invite new users and give them view or edit access to a Mission.

  • Viewers of a Mission can invite new users and only give them view access.

Who can delete a new user?

  • Editors and Owners can remove a pending new user from the Mission while viewers can’t. This does not remove the user from Auto Insights, but only from that Mission.

  • Org Admins can delete users from Auto Insights in the Admin Portal.

To which datasets do new users have access?

Everyone invited to your organization automatically has access to all Sample and Public datasets. However, as part of the invitation process, you can request dataset access to specific datasets on behalf of the users you invite. These requests go out to the dataset owners, and it's up to them to approve or deny access to the datasets for the new users.

What if I accidentally invited the wrong person?

You can reach out to your Organization Admin, and they can delete the user in the Admin Portal.
