Flow allows for sharing outside your institution as well as inside, however, each person you share your collection with will need a Flow account in order to view your research (which they can create for free!). You can share with up to 10 people per collection for free account holders or an unlimited number of Flow users if you have an Institutional account
To share a collection, click on the collection’s name to select it, then
The person you've invited will get an email notification, and a notification inside Flow, where they can accept (or reject) the invitation. If the person doesn’t have a Flow account, they will be asked to create one.
Remember, when you share a collection any sub-collections are also shared.
Viewing a collection's sharing status
To view who you've shared a collection (and what collections you have shared), click "Sharing" and click "options" for the desired collection.
Clicking on the "Options" link opens the sharing access/invite box where you can modify individual rights, as well as invite others to your collection.

You can even collaborate using the same set of references by sharing your Flow collection with your collaborators. Read more about sharing a collection.
Note: Anyone you share with can also delete in-text citations you’ve included in your document, however, they cannot delete references from your Flow account.
