Sharing a Folder

Sharing a Folder allows you to share all Texts inside the Folder. If, for example, some documents and sub-folders are in a file called “Team Share Folder”, you can apply the same share setting to all the documents and sub-folders inside the Team Share Folder by setting sharing for “Team Share Folder.”


A shared folder is prepared by the procedure "Preparing a new Folder".
