I used to be able to invite friends to have edit access to particular folders. This no longer seems to be possible. Am I missing something. I am on the free plan. I feel a bit nervous about handing out an edit link.

Hi @slimy_asparagus, you should be able to share a folder, using these steps. 

 

Do you have any issues when you try to follow them?

Hi @slimy_asparagus, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

What error are you getting when attempting to invite users to shared folders?

 

This will help me to assist further!

No error messages. Just in the past I was able to share a folder and a dialog would come up that would mean I could enter people's emails. I can no longer find that functionality.

 

I can still send people an edit link, but there maybe people who have access to the message that theoretically should not have edit access.

Thanks. I am not sure why I could not do this the other day as I have done it many times before. May be I was too stressed.
