Cannot make project public

I am using the latest available Version of Goalscape Online for Mac (2.10.0 Build 104) on Bug Sur 11.1.
I am trying to make a project public in order to show it to students for online learning. Unfortunately there is no link that could be shared (see screenshot). Any ideas what I could do about this?

Thanks,
Falk

    Hello Falk

    Yes: in the old browser-based Goalscape Online application, even Public projects depended on the Viewer having Adobe Flash Player installed (and enabled in the browser). Since Flash is no longer being supported, we have implemented the Goalscape Online client as a downloadable app – and because it is no longer browser-based it is not possible to create a Public project (that can be viewed on a browser).

    You can still give as many people View access to a project as you like: you will though need to Share it with them Privately, by entering their email addresses in the Share screen. Existing Goalscape users will see the shared project appear in their workspace; new users will need to download the app to View the project (their invitation email contains the relevant links and instructions).

    With Goalscape 3.0 (to be released later this year) we expect to be able to support Public projects once more.

    Keep achieving great goals, stay safe and have a marvellous '21!
