    At the moment if you share an item URL with someone who is not in your organisation they will not be able to access the item via this URL even if it has been shared with a group that they are a member of e.g.

    http://myorg.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=<itemid>

    This is because when they are prompted to sign in to ArcGIS Online it tries to sign them into that organisation and says they are not a member.

    Could AGOL not be more intelligent about this and just log them into their own organisation (based on their username) and then try to open the relevant item id.  This would be a lot less hassle then cutting and pasting item ids and searching on them.
