Available permissions

Permissions are applied to users, not devices. Please see the list below for available permissions.

Permission Description
Remove Member Removes all permissions from the targeted user. The user will disappear from the member list after a few seconds and won’t have access to the folder anymore.
Read The targeted user is only allowed to read the content of the folder. If he tries to edit the folder content (e.g. by editing, uploading, renaming, deleting files or subfolders etc.) the changes won’t be synchronized but instead reversed shortly thereafter.
Read/Write The targeted user is allowed to read and edit the content of the folder. He can edit, upload, rename, delete (etc.) files and subfolders while the changes are synchronized and transmitted to the other folder members.
Admin The targeted user is allowed to read and edit the content of the folder. He can edit, upload, rename, delete (etc.) files and subfolders while the changes are synchronized and transmitted to the other folder members. Furthermore, as an admin he is also able to delete the toplevel folder itself and to invite/remove folder members.
Owner The targeted user is the owner of the folder meaning he is equal to an admin but the storage space occupied by the folder is deducted from the quota of this user. A toplevel folder can only have one owner, therefore the owner permission will be revoked from this user if he invites another one to be the owner.

 

Default Permission


The default permission is set on Read/Write but as an admin or the owner of a toplevel folder you can change the permission of the member anytime.
