A user can share a file/folder with multiple users by separating their email addresses with a semicolon in the email address field when sharing a file/folder (e.g., email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org).
A user can only share a single item (either a file or a folder) at a time. A user cannot share multiple files/folders with single or multiple users in a single step.
Guest user is not required to have a Microsoft Office 365 account.
A user can customize a guest user’s permissions while sharing a folder. Privileges can be configured to permit browsing, downloading, uploading, or any combination of the above. In case of sharing a file, the guest user is granted Download permission by default.
An expiration date for each file or folder that’s being shared with another user must be defined. By default, a two-day access is granted, but the expiration date can be customized when sharing a file/folder by changing the value in the “Expiration Date” field. There is no limitation on the longevity of the sharing period.
Only an owner of the file/folder has permission to rename it.
Guest users cannot share files with any other users unless upload permission is granted on a folder. In that case, files that the guest user uploads to the shared folder on the application will be automatically shared with the user that shared the folder.
The list of privileges includes: download a file (granted by default when sharing just a file), browse the contents of a shared folder, and upload new files to a shared folder. Guest users cannot create new folders, or rename files/folders.
There are no limitations on the number of folders that can be created.
An unlimited number of files can be shared with a user.
The size limit for a single file is 500 GB. However, the content of a folder can exceed this size.
There are no restrictions on the file format types that can be shared or stored.
Once the link to a shared content expires, the sender will see the expiration date in red on the Outbox page. To reshare, select the link you would like to re-share, and then click Re-share. A new expiration date must be selected before re-sharing. You cannot re-share a file that was deleted from the application.
Once a file/folder is shared and the message is sent, there is no process to recall it. However, the message can be expired immediately. To expire a message, go to the Outbox page and select the message you would like to expire. Then click Expire Message on the ribbon. The selected message will be expired immediately and cannot be accessed by the guest user.
Guest users cannot register themselves until a user shares a file or a folder with them. After that, they will receive an email from SecureFileHub with a link that allows them to register.
There is no time limit for an active guest user. However, if a guest user is inactive for 30 consecutive days, then the guest user will be removed from the application.
