There are a number of ways to securely share files and folders that are stored in Glasscubes.

Sharing files

To share a file go to the 'Files' section of your workspace and find the file in the list. Click on the file's 'Options' button and select 'Share file' from the drop down menu.

Alternatively, from the file's detail page click the 'Share' button.

If you need to share multiple files/folders select them from the 'Files' section of your workspace and the 'Share' button will appear at the top of the list.

Click the 'Share' button and the share popup will appear.

Sharing files internally

It you want to share files with another Glasscubes user, click on the text box highlighted below and a drop down menu will appear. Now select all of the users or teams that you want to share the file with. 

Before sharing the file you have the option to add a personal message. Click ‘Done’ and an email notification will be sent to the user(s) with an internal link to access the file.

Sharing files externally using a public share link

If you want to share files with people that aren’t Glasscubes users, just add their email address(es) to the box instead. They will be sent a secure link to access the file. 

You also have the option of adding a password or expiry date to the link, see above.
