You can easily hand over a downloaded project, either with or without the HoloViewer file.

You can also share your active online projects via the sharing options in the Web Editor.

Please note: Archived and downloaded projects can only be viewed online by users with a specific role on the dashboard and project - here the assigned Project Manager (PM), any Group Manager of the related group (GM), and the Enterprise Admins (EA) of the dashboard.
