Membership allows you to define access permissions to files and folders.

    shared links or adding members to the sharing.

    1. Select an entry in the list and click the Create button.
    2. The shared link window is displayed:

    3. Select the Access Type:
      • Viewer: anyone with the link can view the file or directory.
      • Editor: anyone with the link can edit the file or directory.

    4. In the Who can access choice box, select:
      • Anyone with the link.
      • Invited only: only invited members.

    Click OK and the created link will appear in the list.

    To manage shared links:

    • Click Remove to delete a shared link; or
