The ability to re-share and also manage subsequent shares that have been created from your original share is available in FileCloud version 18.2

Private Sharing means you are only allowing users with a FileCloud account to access your folder.

(lightbulb)  You can invite someone to create a FileCloud account so you can share with them.

On the Manage Share window, in the SHARE PERMISSIONS panel, when you choose 

  • Allow Selected Users or Groups

 You will be able to lookup users and groups who have a FileCloud account, add them as a Guest, and then send them an email with the link. 

For each guest that you add, you can assign the permissions as sown in Table 1.
