  4. Click Continue.

Note: If the folder has sub-folders you do not want to share, untick the ‘Apply to sub-folders’ check box.

  1. If an added email address is not in your contacts, you will receive a notice that they need to accept a sharing invitation before the folder can be shared.
    Add your email address and click Continue.
  1. Choose a role for the people you are sharing your folder with: 
  • Reviewer – View and download documents.
  • Contributor – Reviewer access, add/delete own documents, create sub-folders.
  • Owner – Contributor access, manage folder access, delete documents and folders.
  1. Delete people or groups from the list with the X next to their name.
