The ability to re-share and also manage subsequent shares that have been created from your original share is available in FileCloud version 18.2

You can share a folder and all its contents only with users who have a FileCloud account.

  • This provides more security when sharing folders and their contents.
  • This is useful when you only have a small number of people you want to share with.
  • You can share a folder and its contents with existing FileCloud users or groups.
  • You can share a folder and its contents and invite a new user to create a FileCloud account.

When you share a folder and all its contents privately:

  • A Share Link window opens to provide the link.
  • By default the folder can be accessed by external users.
  • You need to click Advanced to set sharing restrictions.
  • You can edit and send an email inviting new or existing FileCloud users to access the folder and all its contents.
  • You become the share owner for that folder and its contents.
  • The user will be required to log in with a FileCloud account to access the folder on the User Portal.

As a private share owner, you now have the ability to:

  • View and manage re-shares; that is shares created from your shared folder by other users.
  • Assign managers to view and manage re-shares; that is shares created from your shared folder by other users.
