Folder permissions

It´s straightforward to view and manage folder permissions so that your users can access ONLY the folders you want them to access.

Folder permissions

To see who can access a folder, enter or select the folder and click the Permissions icon in the Toolbar.


You will now see at a list of the users that has access to this folder (including sub-folders). You can change, add, or remove their folder permissions directly from this menu. Choose between:

  •  View only
  •    View & Download
  •   Upload & more, or
  • Remove. 

To add and manage users you can click the MANAGE USERS button. This will take you to Admin > Users where many more user specific actions can be performed.

 View only = The user will be able to view this folder and its content. But will not be able to download or upload files.

 View & Download = The user will be able to view this folder and its content. And to download from this folder and subfolders.

  Upload & more = The user will be able to view and download this folder and its content. And to upload to this folder and subfolders. This is the default folder permission for all new users.

Remove = The user will no longer have access to this folder.

TIP: If any of the folder permissions icons (   ) are greyed out, it is because the user has access through a parent folder. Hover the icon to see which folder the permission can be altered from.
Important: If no folders are listed in the Folder Permissions window, only Administrators will be able to access the folder.
