Microsoft Entourage for Mac lets you share a project with others so that they have full access to the same set of project information. You can store project information by using a mutually accessible network server or by storing the project in a shared folder on your computer. Each subscriber to a project can make changes to project data and control what is shared with others.
Inviting others to join a shared projectThe person who creates the project invites others to subscribe to the project by sending them an e-mail invitation. All subscribers to a project have access to add, to remove, and to modify shared information in the project. They can then also send e-mail invitations to other subscribers after the project is first shared.
To send an e-mail invitation to a shared project, follow these step:
Additionally, you cannot create e-mail invitations for shared projects that are stored on your computer.

Notes about shared projectsIf a shared project is stored in a shared folder on the publisher's computer, instead of on a network server, the publisher cannot send you an e-mail invitation to join the project. You must subscribe manually by clicking Subscribe to a Project on the File menu in the Project Center.
When you create a project, you must first share the project, and then the individual project items can be shared or not shared.
Where you share a project, you must make sure that the permissions are set correctly on the shared folder where the shared project is stored to maintain the appropriate access for the shared project and to restrict access to information to only those individuals who have permissions set on the shared folder.
