Hi Dennis - You should be able to share a folder that already resides in ShareFile.

Thanks Doug.  Is that the expected flow?  Any chance that capability will be added to the plug-in?  We are going from Accellion to ShareFile and our users are used to being able to share a folder from the Oulook plug-in.

Thanks,
Dennis

I'm not sure what you mean. Share a folder from the local PC?

I mean share a folder on the local pc through the Citrix Files for Outlook plug-in.  Part of the process would be the folder would be added to the user's personal folders in ShareFile programmatically (transparent to the user).

No, there is currently no way to share/upload a folder directly to the user's Personal Folders. Only files may be shared via the Outlook plug-in from the local PC. And those files are uploaded to the user's File Box.
