Configuring sharing

The sharing feature allows users to alert others about interesting content items. You can enable and disable content sharing.

Shared content notifications are private and appear only in the Inbox of the receiver or receivers. Additionally, you can require that users must be connected to send direct messages and shares to each other. By default, sharing is enabled.

Fastpath: Admin Console: System > Settings > Direct Messages and Sharing

To enable and configure content sharing:

  1. In the Admin Console, go to System > Settings > Spell Check.
  2. Select the Enable sharing check box.
  3. Select the Require user connection check box to required established connections between users to send direct messages and share content.

    If you need certain users to be able to override this setting, for example, your HR Director to be able to send direct messages or shares with users they aren't connected to, go to Permissions > Other Content Permissions and set up a user override with DM/Sharing user override permission.
