How do I share data with reviewers?

You should click on the Share with Reviewers button in the Sharing Permissions panel as shown below. It is located on the left in your experiment view. This will generate a secret code, which you are supposed tell the editor, who will pass it onto the reviewers, who will use it to get anonymous read only access to your uploaded data.

Once you have clicked on the Share with Reviewers button, the Sharing Permissions panel will change slightly as shown in the second figure below. You can click on the secret code link and it will display the code again so that you can copy and paste it elsewhere.
