I'm trying to get an associate to view, update files in one folder only. When sharing the folder I (as I'm using the 5gb version FREE) I'm send with no password required. eg: Documents folder 'Anyone with the link can edit". When the recipient receives the email request and tries to open the link it requires a password for an account. The recipient is not using Office 365. Can you please advise how the recipient can share use and update the files in the folder.

 

How is the folder and file updated in the senders onedrive.

Hi @pcmaculladulla,

 

Sorry to hear you're having an issue! Can you share a screenshot of the sharing settings when you are sending the file? That will help me troubleshoot what is going on. Thanks!
