View-only Link Isnt't View-only

Iron 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?

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