View-only Link Isnt't View-only

Contributor

Hi folks,

 

I've shared an Excel file as view-only, and confirmed the link is view-only by looking at "Manage Access", but when I test with another account I can edit the file.

 

The file is shared with one other account with edit permissions.

 

Can you not share a file with two sets of users, one view-only and one allowing editing?


Thanks

@CMSCMSCMS My fault. The folder above was shared with editing privs for staff, hence it was overriding the view-only permission. Case closed!
