Sharing Content in Private Groups

Blog Post created by Christine Brennan Schmidt on Jan 13, 2016

With the upgrade comes new functionality. In playing around, I found this new piece that may be helpful to members of this community.

 

When you have a  private group, you may share share content with users outside of this private group. (This does not work for secret groups or forums.)

 

To do this within a group, go to Manage, then Settings:

Select on "About"

Then under "Extend Visibility", check the box next to "Non-Member Content Editing".

From this point, when you attempt to share content with a user who is not a member of the group, you will see this menu.

Any member of the group can see for each document who has access outside of the group and revoke that access.
