I have a question about the new desktop app and the 'note' section I see. Any help?

Hi,

I see a "note" section for each folder in the new desktop app. If the folder is shared, can anyone with an edit right write text in the note section, or is it only for the owner of the folder? Who can write in this section?

Thank you.

Meg

Hello Meg - how are you today?

Your first assumption is the correct one as when it's related to shared folders all members with edit rights will also get the same options as you such as leave a note, @ mention someone, pin a file/folder to the folder's overview etc.

I hope this helps and -as always- let us know if you have any additional questions!

Hello Walter,

Thank you for the information. 

How about the note section in the top-level right below the business account name? Is this only for the admins? Who can write here?

Could you forward me a screenshot of that so as to make sure we're on the same page Meg?
