Team Folders - Collaborators VS Permissions

Image
When you add a Team Folder to your Tenant, you can add Collaborators from any user source. However, careful attention must be paid to what you add to the Permissions Tab under the Team Folder Settings.



It is normal for there to be no users listed under the "Folder Permissions" tab. All Collaborators will have full access if no one is listed here. Once a user has been added to the permissions settings, any collaborators that aren't in "Permissions" will loose access to the folder. So if any users are there, you must add all the "Collaborators" to the "Folder Permissions" to ensure access.

The following video demonstrates how this works.

Group Policy - Home Folder and Active Directory Users

Image
When adding users from an Active Directory (AD) connection, you can take advantage of the Home Folder setting in a user's AD Profile settings. 
First you must connect your Tenant to their AD. To take advantage of this Home Folder setting, do not add the user to the Tenant before setting up the AD side. Also make sure the Group Policy settings are adjusted before adding as well.



Click "Edit" and enter your Domain Controller or LDAP Server Address (myhost:389). Enter your AD admin credentials. "APPLY" these settings.



Now make sure you have content for this user in a local network location so it can be connected to that user's AD properties.



Now make sure your AD properties for this user are setup to take advantage of the Home Directory option.



In the user's properties choose the Profile tab.



Notice that I have the Profile tab active, and in the Home Folder settings for this user, I've entered a network location of their content (e.g., documents, pict…
