Tip of the week: Restrict access to your documents

18 Dec

Since we released the new document management features we’ve seen a huge spike in the number of files that people upload to their wiki.

Now people want to know how to set custom security on these files – specifically how to share a document with just a few users but not everyone on the wiki.

Here is a question straight from the support queue:

“It seems that everyone on my wiki can click on the files button and see all the files. Is there a way to prevent this? I have files that I do not want other departments to see.”

YES! On premium wikis, administrators can create custom security settings for their documents and files.

To restrict access to files and documents on your wiki:

  1. First create a folder and set custom security on that folder.
  2. Next upload your files into that folder.

    Thanks for sharing! In this way, we’ll have our files secured.
