Sharing a single location in multiple Outlooks: 

Multiple Outlooks can share a single location so long as the location forecast is current. If ARA #1 updates the location forecast, ARA #2 can see the forecast was updated and use it in their Outlook as part of their own Collection, no add'l work required. It is always recommended to verify a forecast before using it.

Example collection using a location (Pullman) that was updated by another user (Marlin Martinez). Note red and green colors indicate current and out of date forecasts.
