Refined User Subfolder Permissions in CentreStack

Image
Generally when you share a folder to a user, permissions are given to any parent folders, in order for that user to see the folder you are sharing. In a recent update we gave you the ability to share a subfolder several levels deep with a user and limit their permissions to only that folder's contents.

This is very useful if you don't want to create a shared folder that only that user can access.

So, to start, we add two Collaborators from users previously added to this Tenant; in this case they are Alice and Joe. Both of these users are added as collaborators for this folder "FilesforSharing".
To set this up I created three folders, Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3.

Then you go to the Folder Permissions tab and click the small down arrow (1) and choose Level 1; there you add Alice, giving her full permissions. To add a user click the small cross-tools icon on the top-right.


 Then you use the down arrow again (2) to pass Level 2 (Alice's permissions will already be …

System Diagnostic Report Feature in CentreStack

Image
Hi there. I’m Tom Roe, Product Evangelist for CentreStack. And in this video, I want to demonstrate how the new System Diagnostic Report works.

So, from the Cluster Admin Dashboard in the Web Portal, on the right-hand side, click System Diagnostic Report to get started. (Narrative continues below...)



This tool analyzes your installation to ensure that all the parameters are set-up correctly. To get a report on these parameters, simply click the text, “Start System Scan to Generate Report”.
As you can see, this tool quickly assesses your setup parameters and shows you items that need your attention.
Initially we decided to collect the most common settings where issues occur for new users of CentreStack, but in the weeks ahead, we will be adding more items to this list to make you aware of any other issues that may be present.  
That’s it for this video. I hope it was helpful for getting you started in understanding the System Diagnostic Report feature. Please like and share and don’t …
