How can I add and assign co-creators to custom copies and collections for editing?

Once your collection or custom copy is created, you can add others as co-creators, enabling them to view and earn royalties from sales. New co-creators also can get editing rights to either the entire material or specific chapters.

To grant co-creators access to view your collections and custom copies and receive royalties.

1.To add co-creator to your collections or custom copies you can choose your editable writing from the "My Library" tab, then “All Books”, “Collections” or “Custom copies” tab on the left-hand side panel. Click the cover to open your work for editing.

2. Scroll to the “Co-Creators Information” block.

3. Click on the button “Add New Co-Creator”.

4. Insert the co-creator’s name and email. For collections you will also have the option to make the co-creator’s name visible on the front of the book or hidden with the "List on Cover" option. 

Note: for custom copies co-creator’s name will appear on the cover by default.

5. For collections you can set the royalty percentage of the total author royalties that you want to share with the co-creators for their contribution. Co-creators of custom copies don’t get royalty.

6. Finally, there is an option to edit the certain chapters of material or the whole one.

7. When you are finished adding this information, click “SAVE”.

There is a different way to assign co-creators to the whole material or the specific chapters. You can assign them in the "Front of Book" tab or in the "Chapters" tab. To assign co-creators editing rights:

From the "Front of Book" tab: 

    1. Scroll down to the "Table of Contents" box.

    2. Select the “Edit Chapter” icon next to the chapter to which you want to assign a co-author.

An "Edit Chapter" pop-up will appear. Select a co-author in the "Assign Co-Creator" drop-down menu and click “Save”.


From the "Chapters" tab:

    1. Select the “Edit” icon next to the chapter you want to assign a co-author.

    2. "Assign Co-Author" from the drop-down menu in the "Edit Chapter" box.

    3. Click “Save”.
