Announcing the release the Kindex Collaborative Upgrade, the best way to bring family and friends together on a single, online archive.

Upgrade Details

Private & Public Archives

When you upgrade to a Collaborative Archive, you choose to make it “Public” or “Private”. Public Archives are a great choice if you want to:

  • connect to others with common interests
  • allow all Kindex users to contribute by Adding, Indexing, and Sharing records within your archive
  • allow your records to be searched by anyone

Private archives are a great choice if you want to:

  • limit access to only yourself and your Collaborators

Note: all archives, whether public or private, may share records on a publicly shareable link. For more information on different user roles within Public and Private archives, see our FAQ.
