This module was always in QuintaDB, but we improved it to satisfy the needs of all of our new users.
On your projects page you can see your projects or projects of the team. If there are no projects of the team yet, it just means that no one shares access with you yet.

Click on the green button at the right named 'Add new users to team' and you'll see all avaialble modules to share.
Notice that you can select any tables or reports with different access role.
All users can have such roles which can be changed at any time.
Please, read here how you can enable 'Access to only own records' and filter records by User.
You can also restrict user from seeing some table columns or editing form fields using Field Level Access.
Notice that you can select which from the available Charts, Maps, Calendars or Portals will be visible for your new team members.
You can also choose Edit, Create or Delete permissions.
For the Files module you can decide if user will be able to upload files, see only his own files or being able to delete files.
Same for Team module, member can add new team member, edit current access rights or delete members. It's up to you if you want to allow them to do it. Or you can leave Team module unchecked and new members will not see other team members.
