What I mean by this is the ability to have an unpublished course that I can play in offline mode...and then SHARE that course with one other person to play with me but only during that play session. It wouldn't be stored locally on his system any longer.

The reason I'm asking is so that someone can show their course to another user to get someone else's opinion and thoughts. It would be pretty handy. No need to send them the "editable" file...just an option to share for a play through.

Probably a lot more work involved than I'm imagining...but I would think it could act just like publishing from an "upload" standpoint...but it would go to different DB and then it would allow only another player that had been invited to play. After the round...it goes POOF and is gone.

doable? would anyone else use it?

Reebdog, this is similar to the solution we are seeking to the multiple publishings of a course.  We are looking in to a way to allow you to beta test a course without publishing it. 

Sounds like good minds think alike.

I figured you'd have thought of it. I just think it would go a long way to helping new designers if they have a way to "share" a course with someone temporarily.

ROCK ON!

(FYI I love testing "offline" on PC. It really does help a LOT)

Sounds like the SnapChat of course design.   8)  I like it.

I certainly would use this "SHARE-temporary".
As a bypass you can send the file to your collegue thru E-mail. Hint to identify the file: Save the course in GNCD, sort the course-folder by date, then it should be the one file showing on top. You even don't need to exit TGC for sending or receiving the files.

for PC that's awesome. I'm trying to get this put in for consoles bubba.
