Shared Folder Issue

Shared Folder Issue

New member | Level 2

Hi folks, I shared a folder with someone today who had editing privileges. When they clicked the link I sent, they got into the folder OK, which says it's empty (which it is), but there are no buttons, nothing in a context menu that will allow them to load a file in to transfer to me.  What's up? Thank you!

Did you send them a shared link, or did you invite them to a shared folder? Only the shared folder will allow them to upload.

Thanks Rich! I see that this time, the folder icon was different and I had not shared the folder, just a link.
