You can create great views, reports, and app interfaces with Airrange. If your IT admin has consented for you to publish these elements outside your Microsoft tenant, you can share your views, apps, and more by link in any social media. Users don't need to log in or identify. However, you can password-protect your apps. Here's what users can do:

    • Share with others
Should you no longer wish the app or a view to be public, you can unpublish or unshare it.
