Set up a shared folder:

  1. Select the appropriate Hub (or create one) and then press 'Create Folder':

    You can also upload a folder from your computer if you already have some files prepared!

  2. Name your folder and then press 'Save':

  3. (optional) files and folders can only be shared with users who are already in your specific Hub. If you need to share content with a user who isn't in your Hub yet, invite them first.
  4. Select your new folder and then press 'Share':

  5. Enter the name or email address of the first person you want to share with:

    Note: if you need a recipient to upload content to your folder, make sure you grant 'Download + upload'. For users internal to your organisation, it may be useful to grant 'Full permissions'.

  7. (optional) Set an expiry date and notes to be shared with the content:

    your content will not be accessible to recipients once the expiry is reached. It will not be deleted.

  8. Press 'Share'. Your content will be sent to all listed recipients, who are notified via email:

    Recipients will be notified by email.


When recipients log in they will see your shared content (ie a folder) in the Hub it was uploaded to. If you have granted upload permission they will be able to share content back with you by uploading it in this space. You will be notified by email when this happens.
