In MyOffice Documents, you can provide other users with access to:

Your files and folders.

The files or folders to which you have the Can manage access permission.

One element (file or folder) per one access granting operation.

The shared access means that users have access to all files and folders within the shared folder.

You can choose between the following ways to provide shared access:

On the Toolbar, click panel_button_share (only for the owner of a file).

Right-click the file or folder name and select Share from the context menu.

Click Sharing settings on the Sidebar (only for the owner of a file).

Use the Get a Link window.
 

Granting access to an element is not possible if a user has been deleted by the system administrator. These users will not be displayed in the address book and could not be found in the search pane of the Share window.

When providing access to a document with a detached electronic signature, you also need to provide access to the signature file.

To provide access to a file or folder, do the following:

1.Select the file that you want to share on the list by clicking its icon.

2.Use one of the described methods to provide shared access.

3.In the opened window, enter names of users, groups, or emails of the users to whom you want to provide access. Or click knpk_add_contact Contact list and perform the following actions in the opened contact form:

Use the field to search users by email address or by the name of the group (the field is available on any tab).

Select users from the list on one of the tabs: Corporate (the tab can be disabled by the MyOffice administrator) or Personal. And/or select the group in the Groups tab. The group names on the Groups tab are not associated with mailing groups (when there is integration with MyOffice Mail). To create a group or find out who is the member of the group, contact your MyOffice software administrator.

Select the contact from the address book using the knpk_add_in_list Add to list button or click Select.

You can provide shared access to all users of the company at the same time by selecting the desired group on the Groups tab of the Contacts list. To find out the group name, contact your system administrator.

If necessary, hover the cursor over the user profile picture or the name of the user to whom you want to provide access permissions to view additional information about the user or click Details in the pop-up window to view the page with detailed information on the selected user in MyOffice Contacts (the button is displayed when integrated with MyOffice Mail). Clicking the button will display the information in a new browser tab.

If you have successfully provided access permissions to a user, the name of the user and the access permissions assigned to the user will be displayed in the Sharing settings window.

If a user grants a group to which the user is a member access permissions to an element below his/her inherited permission, the user will be assigned personal direct management access permissions.
