What is ShareIt™
is a web-based application which provides a flexible communication system.
It can be set up as a one-to-one and/or one-to-many and/or many-to-many set of
communication channels. Who sees what is under the control of a system administrator
who invites participants into one or more private and/or public communication channels.
Within those communication channels top-level users and participants post topics, responses
and comments along with associated files.

- A top-level user can set up any number of communication channels.
(Note: communication channels take the place of stakeholder types in the original model).
- Top-level users invite one or more participants into a communication channel.
- A participant can be in one or more communication channels.
- A communication channel can be private (one participant) or public (many participants).
- Top-level users can share a private communication channel with other top-level users.
- Initially a communication channel is private but more participants can be added to make it public.
- Top-level users and optionally (set in preferences) participants post topics (synonyms: items, issues, themes, subjects, threads)
into their communication channels.
- Topics in public communication channels are seen by all participants in that communication channel.
- Topics in private communication channels are seen only by the one participant and any top-level user seeing that communication channel.
- Topics are identified in the interface as being private or public, depending on which communication channel they reside in.
- Responses (synonym: replies) to topics are posted by participants and top-level users.
- Responses to private topics are only seen by the participant and top-level user(s) who can view that communication channel.
- Responses to public topics are seen by all participants and top-level user(s) who can view that communication channel.
- Comments (synonyms: observations, notes, remarks) are public or private along the same lines as responses.
- Each topic, response and comment can have one or more files attached.
There are options available to top-level users and, separately, participants:
- top-level options:
- whether a participant can post topics;
- alert options - every event, hourly report, daily digest, never;
- alert options on posts - every event, hourly report, daily digest, never etc.;
