Overleaf project share

Many university projects request LaTex as preferred or even demanded task submission format. Since ShareLaTeX didn't quite work out for many colleagues of mine, another more simple and user friendly option established and pushed through. That is Overleaf, online LaTeX text editor. Apart from the fact that two of those lately connected powers, the problem of sharing and working on the same document turned out not being a part of the free "trial" version. There are two options offered to share a document: link sharing and e-Mail invitation. e-Mail invitation as a naturally logical sharing option is unfortunately not working.

Is there any over LateX website with a free version which is not having this problem concerning the trial version ?

The solution is to turn the link sharing on, by allowing all link owners to see & edit. Out of some reason, this sharing possibility does not request a paid account.

I have faced the same problem when i firstly started using Overleaf. About the e-mail invitation, I would like to add that it allows you to share the project with only one collaborator. If you want to share with more colleges, you will have to pay. since we do not want to pay, link sharing is the right solution. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for the solution, I never used LaTeX during my bachelor's since it wasn't as necessary in my university but I see that it is a must here and everything that contributes towards making it easier to use and collaborate is useful.

This discussion was very useful. I didn't know the solution to share the document with many users without having to pay was the link sharing option. Thank you very much.
