(Sub)Folder sharing

mike_hölschermike_hölscher Member Posts: 105 PRO

Is sub-folder Sharing is not possible? The Share option is greyed out when selecting a folder other than a root-Folder.
It seems to be possible on a document level though.

I wanted to give an intern with an Educational Onshape account some persmissions on a specific set of documents in a subfolder, but this was only possible by sharing each document separately.

Is this correct?

    Correct. Sharing can be specified only at the top-level of a folder tree. Feel free to post a request for more fine-grained folder sharing options in the "Improvement Requests" category.

    Allright. Thanks.

    Allowing to change the Sharing options for multiple documents at one would also do the trick. But that is not possible either. Just looking into a way to edit permissions on a group of files at once, that are not in a top level folder.
