"Share a topic, not the whole map"

"I like the ability to share a map, but when the user I shared with (share-ee) opens the map, they get taken to the ""Files"" view of Connect with the sharer's Connect account way at the bottom and the map buried within that account. Most new users will not know where to look for it. I want to be able to share a topic, so when the share-ee clicks it, it opens the map, expands the shared branch, and collapses all others. This would make it easy for the share-ee to see what I wanted them to. Even better if that topic was highlighted with a note that says something like ""Joe Blow shared this topic with you."""

Interesting idea about sharing at the topic level. We are actively working on at least improving the experience when you share a map such that the system at least takes "your share-ee" to that map and by having given you the ability to customize the message, you should be able to achieve the communication goal.

But I see your point about calling it out on the map once the Share-ee lands there.
