One of the major advantages of Arkiver over other apps is privacy: nobody can see anything of yours unless you choose to share it with them. But what if you’re a part of a large group that wants to collaborate on a Collection? At Arkiver, we want you to have the best experience possible–that’s why we’re introducing Groups.



How do Groups work?


First, an Administrator creates the Group and invites members, who will either be Contributors or Viewers. Contributors, like Administrators, can create Collections and manage the Moments they upload. Viewers can only comment. Here’s a summary chart:

what ways can you use groups?

  • Home Renovations: Ever wanted to have your own episode of Fixer Upper? While we can’t get you on HGTV, we can help you record your progress so you can have your own before-and-after documentation. Collaborate with your Contractor/Designer by using our Web Collector tool to share ideas and create a Collection based on your tastes.


  • Family History: Tracking your family history can be difficult. With family spread across the country (or world!), collecting stories and artifacts can seem impossible. However, with Groups members can directly record their favorite family stories or easily share pictures/videos of the artifacts in their possession.


  • Events: How many times have you been to an event, like a wedding, taken a bunch of photos, only for them to never be seen again? Never have that problem again by creating a Group for your event. Invite the attendees and everyone can share their photos/videos/etc.


  • Teams: If you have a kid on a sports team, or if you’re a member of one, you know parents are always taking photos. Why not be able to share them conveniently? If you can’t make a swim meet one week, someone else is bound to have taken photos. It’s an easy way to share memories with other parents or team members.
