Public files are files that are uploaded to a public Topic.
If you are a Member, you can still search files uploaded in a public topic that you are not participating in by setting your search filters to [All Rooms].
Private files are files that are uploaded to a private Topic, where only those who are participating in the Topic or the chat can view or search the files.
- How do you upload a private file?
: If you want your file to be a private file, make sure the Topic or the Chat is private. Anything uploaded to a private chat room becomes a private file.
- How does a private file work?
: Members who are not participating in the private Topic or Chats where the file is uploaded cannot search or view this file.
- Can you change a private file to a public file?
: If you share a private file to a public Topic, the file is no longer private and can be viewed and searched by all members in the Team.
When you share the file to a public Topic, other Members in the team can view the comments under the file.
Please keep in mind that once the file has become public, it cannot be turned back to private.
- Can the Team Admin view a private file?
: If the Team Admin is not currently participating in the Topic or Chat the file is shared in, they cannot view or search the file.
