Overview of shared files?

jaschaaajaschaaa Member Posts: 18 PRO
In our company we have created many files and from time to time we share files with e.g. external parties. Is there an easy way to get an overview of which of the files are still being shared? This would be very convenient!

    Hi @jaschaaa - there is not. Currently, the fastest way to do this is to click each doc one by one and look in the details pane on the right. One suggestion for the future may be to either use folders, one per "external party" - or - probably better may be to use labels and tag each doc when you share it. Hope this helps.

    Shared doc reports are a feature of Onshape Enterprise.

    Hi Neil.

    With respect if "Sharing" is a feature of the Pro Package then the reports should be also.  In my opinion this has the air of removing features from the lower package rather than adding features to the higher one.

    Thanks @jaschaaa and @owen_sparks, Other users have also asked for the similar functionality. Please open a new feature request in Onshape to up the vote so we can properly prioritize it.

    @owen_sparks - not at all - Enterprise was only released in May this year on the back of some heavy development effort to add reporting and analytics (amongst other things).

    Thanks for the nudge. New IR created here.

    Sorry, that came out a little blunter than I intended.  :( 
    The gist was meant to be that as sharing is such an integral part of all tiers of OS subscription then being able to see and manage those shares should not be restricted to the top tier. Enterprise is great, wasn't knocking it in any way.

    Cheers,

    @owen_sparks, our UX and UI teams are discussing various options for this, it could be report based or could be filter based, either way, the new functionality should be available to all users.
