Document control ability

Jump to solution

How can I set Egnyte up to support the following:

  • Grant certain users access to a folder
  • Only allow these users to edit files thru either the desktop or web edit tools so file locking and version control is enforced
  • Prevent these users from downloading/uploading to/from that folder
  • preventing the folder to sync thru Egnyte Sync

The goal is to allow certain users to review, edit and sign off without someone having to reconcile multiple version of the data.

 

Thank you

Hi Yann,

There is no automated way to perform these actions. However as an admin, you should be able to perform these functions.

  1. You should be able to grant access to the users after reviewing the following link: - https://helpdesk.egnyte.com/hc/en-us/articles/201637444-Sharing-with-Folder-Permissions
  2. When you set permissions for the user, by default they get the edit rights. You can change these permissions using the drop down when you assign the permissions.
  3. Downloading on the web portal cannot be stopped. But yes, you can stop some one from uploading anything new using the viewer permissions. So even if someone downloads any file, the cannot change the file and upload it back to Egnyte.
  4. This can be controlled via the configure folders tab in the Egnyte Sync. The user has to uncheck the folders which he/she does not want to sync. You as an admin can only control the access via permissions. You won’t be able to stop any user from syncing any folder to which he/she already has permissions.

 

Thanks

Sagar.
