Workspace Collaborator Role


I'm wondering if we set up a user as "Editor - cannot share" role in a workspace, is he/she able to share any file to people who have been added in workspace?

It happened to me that one of user as "Editor cannot share", he went into a file (shared sheet) and accidently clicked on "share" top right corner. All the users with access received an email...

It's seems weird to me since I thought the role supposed to restrict the "share" function as it stated.

Does anyone know why is that?

    If they are set to that particular permission on the workspace, that only applies to things that they do not own. If they own anything within that workspace or have been granted higher permissions at the sheet level, then they will be able to share that specific item.

  • Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the response. I set up "not share" level to users in Workspace, and each file/document in workspace, they are still the same role. That's why I cannot figure out where's the problem.
