Sharing folders

Using folders makes it easier to organize and share files. For example, you can share a folder that contains files rather than share each file individually.

About this task

Sharing a folder allows the files in that folder to be viewed. To provide editor-level access to files in the folder, you would share specific files with others.

You can give people and communities Reader, Editor, or Owner access to a folder.

To see who has access to your folders, open the folder page and click the Sharing tab.


  1. From the title bar, click Apps > Files.
  2. Click on the folder you want to share.
  3. Click Share.
  4. Proceed to add people, groups or communities, giving them editing or reader access. Under People, Groups or Communities, if you select Everyone in my organization, they are added as readers.
  5. Click Share.
