Step: 4

Move your mouse to the folder and click on the 3 dots button and click “Share”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can choose to share to your company or just a selected group of people

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For example, I only want Jimmy to be able to access the folder so I will only send the link to him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once sent, you can click on the folder and on the right, you can see who has access to the folder.

 

 

 

You can also change the access right of the person you shared with.
