Is it possible to set permissions for my shared folders?

Estimated reading time: 1 Minutes

You can share folders and libraries with other users who also have an account. Note that only the entire library can be shared, if the library is an encrypted library.

Share a library in the web interface with a user

To share a library in the web browser with a user, log in to the web interface. In the view of your own libraries, move the mouse over the name and click on the share symbol:

The following window appears:

Click on:

  • Share with user, if you want to share the library with only one or more individual people.
  • Share with group, if you want to share the library to an group with several people. This must have been created before.

Now enter the e-mail address of the user or group – you must enter it completely. The user must have been created in our system.

You can set the permissions for the affected user or group, the options are as follows:

  • Read + Write: A user can open, modify and remove files
  • Read only: A user can open files, but not modify them
  • Administration: A user can open, modify and remove files as well as add other users to this library
