    As we are many race directors in our club, we have a need to help each other create and maintain courses for our official races, various events, as well as co-creating completely new courses.

    Today it seems only one individual account can create and maintain a route. Others can only view it, download or clone it.

    But we'd like multiple accounts to have edit rights on certain courses

    For example:
    Course owner is the original creator of the course. They can invite other Plotaroute accounts as editors, and re-assign ownership to another account.

    Admins/Editors, are invited Plotaroute accounts who can also edit an Owner's course; or in case of Plotaroute Club Admin; can co-operate and Edit on Club routes. (As a group setting)

    As English is not my native language I hope I make sense in my request.
    Thank you for considering.

    That's a great idea Daniel, thanks for suggesting that. I think the main difficulity would be how to prevent  more than one person editing a route at the same time. It would probably require some sort "check-out" and "check-in" facility in addition to a way of assigning and removing permissions for selected users. Not a simple piece of work but I can see how it would be useful. We've added it to our Feature Requests list where people can vote for it (number 130).

    Yes, it's not a simple feature as it involves the classics of managing multiple committed versions, how to resolve conflicts (typically resolved on code and files with git, svn and other version control solutions.). 

    Thank you for considering, I hope more users see the benifit!
