I want to share an Amazon WorkDocs file or folder. How can I do that?

Resolution

You can share a file or folder either by sending an invite to a user or group, or by sharing a link. The best sharing method for you depends on who you want to share the file or folder with, and on your WorkDocs configuration.

Note: You can't share a file or folder with an email distribution list.

To view the existing access permissions for a file or folder, select or open the file or folder, and then choose Share, Permissions.

Invite people

The Invite people method allows you to share a file or folder with a user or group within your organization. The invitees receive an email with a web link to the shared file or folder.

Important: If your administrator configured WorkDocs with AD Connector, then you can invite only users or groups within the same directory as the file or folder. However, you can share a link to a file with someone outside of the directory. See the Share a link section below.

For instructions to invite people to share a file or folder, see Sharing by invite.

The Share a link share method allows you to share a file link with someone outside of your WorkDocs organization. You can also share a link to a file or folder with anyone within your WorkDocs organization.

Note: Folder links can't be shared outside of your organization.

For instructions to share a link to a file or folder, see Sharing a link.
