Note sharing / collaboration

One feature that I really need before committing to Bear is the ability to work on notes with team members / clients. It doesn't look like this is baked in, that or I can't see it. The app is so beautiful and will definitely be my Evernote replacement if note collaboration is there.

    This would be a game changer! bear just replaced evernote + typora for me on mac, sharing notes in a "bear"-format with others would be very nice also for me as a student!

    I would really appreciate if there would be the possibility to share a bunch of notes (not a single note) wit colleagues. maybe sharing a tag would be the best idea.

    +1 for collaboration. Bear does everything else better than EN, Apple Notes, Dropbox Paper, etc. Just need this to replace all the others.

    +1 for collaboration from me, too!

    It would be necessary in order to finally ditch the other apps I have to use (like Evernote)

    +1 from this David too. Live collaboration would be a major satisfier.

    Sharing a note or the #tag would be killer feature.

    I would love to be able to export a Bear note in the same format that I’ve crafted it in Bear. For example, I typed up an outline for a meeting in Bear, and I loved the format. When I export it to Word or even as an HTML in order to share the outline with colleagues, it gets all blown out and requires additional post-formatting in order for it to look professional and not... weird. Any thoughts on this?

    Pages does this really well, but doesn’t have inline drawing and markdown
    Dropbox paper does this really well, but is very limited on iPad, and crude with images
    Notability, no markdown, beautiful inline sketching, though no collaboration
    Bear, a bit of everything. But no collaboration.

    I also just started using bear and I’ve fallen in love with it already! I WOULD LOVE A COLLABORATION FEATURE.

    I think Bear is now out of 1.0 so is it still on the list of items?

    Yes, I'm afraid collaboration is still on the list and not in the very first places. Unfortunately, collaborative notes require a lot of work compared to how much this feature is requested and this is holding us at the moment. Our intention is still to address it at some point.

    Writing is meant to to be shared. I understand supporting collaboration is hard. What about sharing? Even being able to send someone a link to see my business plan would help. Instead, I have to copy it into Google drive and manually keep that version up to date.

    A path like this would keep me using Bear:

    Step 1: sharing
    Step 2: allowing others to comment or give feedback
    Step 3: collaboration

     Without this feature, Bear is just a beautiful, personal journal.
