Public File Sharing Link with Password - Recipient Permission

Jump to solution

When sharing a folder link with someone outside of users (public) with the password link option, what permission does the recipient have with the file ?  Can they edit & delete files, or only view and download?

Hello @CAC,

Whenever you share a file or folder link, you're only grating the recipient the ability to view and/or download the file or the contents of the folder. If you want to give someone the ability to edit or delete content, you'd need to add them as a user and grant them Editor permissions or higher to that folder. 

Learn more about the user types and folder permissions.

 

Thank you,

Kathleen
