File Permissions

Hello.  How do I give a user permissions to a file only, not the folder?  User already has editor access to the folder it resides in.  User is trying to add information to a Excel Spreadsheet and it will not save her change or additions.

Re: File Permissions

Hi Dave55,

We can only apply permissions to a folder in Egnyte. All files within that folder will inherit the folder permissions unless you choose to turn off permission inheritance.


The editor access should allow the user to make changes to the file. How does this user make the change to the file? are you using Webedit to open the file in local Microsoft Excel, Office 365 or Egnyte desktop connect client?
