Qaisar shows you how to
assign per-folder permissions
to different WorkDocs users


I want to grant a user access to a file or folder in Amazon WorkDocs. How do I do that? 

To manage sharing permissions on files and folders in WorkDocs, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to the WorkDocs web application.
  2. Choose My Documents.
  3. For the file or folder you want to share, open the drop-down menu and choose Share.
  4. In the Invite Specific People field, type the name of the user that you want to share the file or folder with.
  5. Set the appropriate sharing permission.

Note: You can explicitly share files and folders with users who have signed in to the WorkDocs site at least once. If you are the administrator of the site, you can see the list of active users by choosing Administration in the left navigation pane and then viewing the user's status under Manage Users.
