Users can take advantage of multi-user accounts to view data individually, complete with custom dashboards. Reports can be downloaded, or links can be shared for review of custom reports and dashboards.

Sharing is a robust feature of Looker. I like how we can share just bare links, and the other end-user just takes off from there to do their own version of the analysis. Scheduling reports and dashboards with a plethora of options like pdf, email, csv and html files is just a breeze.

Looker is definitely one of the top BI software for data sharing and collaboration. The ability for multiple users to access and manipulate data is great and one of the best aspects of this program. This is an especially useful tool for large businesses where easy sharing is of upmost importance.

People can be configured to access other people's Space and use their reports. Sharing of a particular report can simply be done by sending the user with the report URL. People with the right permission can alter your report settings. Report scheduling is easy but it does not give you a lot of options.

You have the ability, out of the box, to share a view (they call it a Look) or a dashboard with any named user or to publish it to SFTP, email, the web, etc. We've used that functionality heavily, especially considering that the view is scoped to that user's access abilities.

Super easy to share looks and reports. Love the ability to schedule reports and dashboards to be delivered to me or other team members. Love that it updates them automatically and I don't have to go in and re-run them every single time I need them. Looks are easy to find and navigate and make private as well.

I am only able to comment on the reports that I build or that others build and put them in shared folders for others to see. For that purpose, it works as well as I think anyone could expect. I don't do scheduling and sending of reports or anything more complicated than just viewing reports/dashboards between team members.

The tool is pretty good about sharing. Each report has a unique web address that can be emailed. Users can copy the report and make changes without fear of altering the original master copy. Reports can easily be restricted to certain users. You can also schedule reports to be mailed out to users each day.

I find it very easy to share reports with people (especially because of the temporary URL's when editing a query). The dashboards are a nice feature, especially since you can send them out automatically. This is beneficial for waterfalls and other notifications.

Reports from Looker can be distributed across the organization. They can be generated in different formats and shared via email or other web portals. The tool can also be used by multiple users with access-based controls. This makes it very standardized and heavily dependable. This feature is particularly useful for larger teams.

There are shared spaces where we have teams/departments build out there own content. And, individual users have their own personal (private) workspace as well. Any page can be shared via a unique URL available in the page settings, and there are many scheduling and export options (including webhook to send the data to other systems).

Using Github as the foundation for development is genius. It allows collaborators to work together in a robust, known, trusted team development environment. With that you get all the standard capabilities, like versioning, peer review, auditing, etc.

It is really easy to share Looks(single query/visualization) and Dashboards built in Looker. It is possible to this via URL so you don't even need to save them or send the results directly to someone via email. Looker also has a Slackbot, but unfortunately have not used it yet. Looker also supports embedding you Looks and Dashboards.

Looker's great about sharing, but collaboration could use some work. Sharing reports is pretty easy. Collaboration does not work on "Looks", but it does work in "Dashboards" and LookML modeling. Access controls are good if your model is built around it, but otherwise Looker could use a little more flexibility with sharing "explores" with users as opposed to entire "models"
