  • Team Sandboxes

    The facilitate team collaborative efforts within the remixer was expanded to include Team Sandboxes. When set up by the LibreTexts administrators, team members, the sandbox area for individual users will be expanded with a shared Team Sandbox and look like this (with your username in the middle, not the "DelmarTestBasic" account):

    Team members can collaboratively edit content in th Team Sandbox, including using collaborative remixer.

    Refresh Remixer may be Needed

    To clear the cache and update the remixer on your computer, you will have to do a Control-F5 - for PCs and Ctrl and ⇧ Shift and then press R for macs.

    Collaborative Remixing

    The remixer (in edit remix mode) can access to the entire library in the "Library Panel" including texts in the Courses, Bookshelves and Sandboxes (Figure \(\PageIndex{2}\)). A new feature that is the text that was open when the remixer was launched is indicated in italics; the remixer in Figure \(\PageIndex{2}\) was loaded from the Sandbox area.

    When the hierarchy in the the Library Panel is expanded, only sections that are in blue text can be loaded with your permissions.

    There are no texts/courses to remixer in either Sandbox, so nothing can be loaded up. That requires creating a new remix, or manually adding an empty page in the sandboxes for expanding. The remixer (new mode) will be updated promptly for doing this.
