Sharing Paper Docs from within a folder.

Explorer | Level 4

Is it possible to share docs that are nested in a folder (1 level deep) without giving access to the folder the doc is stored in. Ideally, I'd like to maintain a folder structure for my organization, and share docs to various individuals located within.

Yes, it is actually @MrManhattan - just browse to find the Paper doc you'd like to share and click on the share button (upper right corner from within the doc itself).

If they try to go back to the folder (the folder's name will be visible from within the doc) they'll be prompted with a message to request access from the folder's owner and won't be able to see anything else.

I hope this clarifies matters for you and please let me know if you have any more questions.

That's great. How many levels will this hold for?

I understand it will work for docs inside a folder at the root level.  What if I share a doc, from a folder that is nested inside of the root folder?

Same thing will apply for all levels on your folder structure @MrManhattan

Let me know if you have any more questions and happy Monday!
