Shared with

This section shows you who the folder has been shared with. Owners and creators of folders always appear on the list and are not be removable. If a user takes over the ownership of a folder, they will automatically appear and won't be removable.

A folder can be shared with individual users and Partner companies. If the folder is shared with a Partner company, you can see the full list of recipients by clicking the information icon which appears when hovering over the row.

From here you can send a reminder message to a user added to the folder or remove someone from the folder.

To do so:

  • Click on the actions menu next to the user's name (1)
  • Select Message (2) if you would like to send this person a message
  • Select Remove (3) to unshare the folder with that person

Here you can also edit Manager's permissions on private folders.

Simply click in line (1) to decide if you would like that person to be able to create, edit and delete items from that folder.
 This option is only selectable for Managers from the same account as the folder owner who are added to private folders. Supervisors, Administrators and Billing Administrators have edit rights over all folders in the account and Observers cannot create any items.

For more information on permissions, please visit the Profiles and permissions help page.


The Activity section of the Folder details page shows you shows you a list of all actions performed in the folder in a chronological order.

It includes the date and details of any recent activity in the folder.

You can see the following details in the Activity section:

  • When the folder was shared
  • When a proof was moved into the folder
  • When a proof was moved out of the folder
  • When a proof was sent to trash
  • When a proof was restored from trash
  • When a sub-folder is created within the particular folder


Here you can check the messages that were sent to users on the folder:

  • Click on the i icon available at the right (1) to view the full message sent
  • A pop up with the full email will be shown
