This guide describes how you can publish and share any CARTO map through CARTO Builder.
CARTO Builder lets you GET THE LINK to share a link to your map, or EMBED IT using HTML code for a blog or website.
Before publishing your map, you can control the features that display on your map from the Map Options, which are available from the Builder toolbar.
CARTO provides privacy settings for your map and the datasets used in the map. The default privacy setting varies, depending on the account type. For some accounts, you can change the privacy setting at any time.
For Enterprise accounts, you can access the sharing settings directly from the publishing options and share maps between colleagues in your organization. Sharing a map is not the same as publishing a map. Sharing is internal, publishing is external.
From the LAYERS pane of Builder, click SHARE.
The SHARE WITH COLLEAGUES subtab appears by default; where you can specify who you want to share your map with. You can also view these options by clicking ADD PEOPLE, located underneath the map name.
Search for team members by username or email, or select a team member from your group.
Click the slider button to activate Read access for the team member. If the user is part of a group, they can share the map or dataset with the group that they belong to.
Once your map options are adjusted and your privacy settings are set, you can publish (and update) your map externally.
From an open map in Builder, click PUBLISH to open the publishing options.
The publishing options display the SHARE WITH COLLEAGUES and the PUBLISH options. You can toggle between these subtabs if you are an Enterprise user. Otherwise, the publish options appear.
Click the PUBLISH button, located underneath the map name. (If the map has already been published, this button appears as UPDATE).
The link and embed code appear.
Click DONE to close the publishing options and return to Builder.
All maps reflect the timestamp for when they are published. You can continue to edit your map in Builder without modifying your live, published version!
