Allow Organization to share content with users from another Organization

Idea created by rgrichards on Oct 25, 2013
    I was surprised to learn you cannot share with users from another organization. In our area we have strong relationships with our Regional Partners who all now have ArcGIS Online for Organizations subscription. 

    If AGOL is going to be our platform to share and bring down the agency silos, how are we supposed to do this without consuming more users in our Organization? That is the last thing we want is to consume additional users as well as the regional partners do not want yet another login to another portal. 

    In the current platform there is very little value across agencies unless everything is public. We already have FTP, Shared Portals and VPN connections and it seems these solutions will still need to exist with this online limitation.
