Creating a Collaborative Share from the Web Console

You can request for a collaborative share folder from the Web Console. A collaborative share has the following benefits:

  • You can store files in the collaborative share folder that you want to work on with other users in your organization.
  • You can give other users rights to view and edit the files in the collaborative share folder.
  • The administrator is the original owner for the shared space. Therefore, if the requested user is no longer a member of the collaboration group or organization, the shared space is still available for use.

Before You Begin

  • Users you want to collaborate with must have a Web Console account. For more information, see Registering a User - Web Console.
  • Verify that your administrator gave you the required permission to request a collaborative share. Contact your administrator to assign the permission.
