Wireframe allows the invited user to edit the wireframe (please note - to edit the user must be a paid member).
Manage allows the invited user to edit and also provides that user with the ability to invite additional users (this option is only available to paid users).

By clicking on that icon and selecting "preview url" iPlotz will generate a url to your wireframe.
