Sharing

Sharing occurs via email. You can share both the results of a template and include the template source.

Share from a Template

To share a template and its results, perform a computation then select the Send menu in the template. This will embed the results in an email.

In addition, the template itself may be attached to the email. Select this attachment from any Android or iOS device to open it in powerOne. The attached template includes both the template code and the results also embedded in the email.

Whether the template is attached is a choice made by each developer. Templates marked as "Sharable" by the template creator are automatically attached to any email sent. Only powerOne Pro editions can open attached templates.

Template Source File

The attached template is a special file called a .p1t file (for powerOne Template). This file is not encrypted and can be viewed in any text editor. This means that email applications, web browsers and other applications on an iOS or desktop computer can show the contents of the file. It also means that the attached file can be saved and stored independent of the email. For instance, DropBox can be used to store and backup your templates as well as makes it possible to recover powerOne templates via the DropBox Android application [powerOne Pro Feature].
