  2. Select a file or folder by checking the box next to it.
  3. Click the Share icon.

  7. Click the arrow on “Can view” to change the permissions, including view, comment and edit.
  8. Click “Share” and “Save”.

The invited users will receive an email and gain access to the shared file or folder upon log in with their Google accounts (username@s.eduhk.hk).
