How do I share an existing folder with other users?

When sharing a folder or item in a folder, you have two options. You may easily share with other users in your organization by simply selecting their name. You may also share with users outside of your organization, assuming the recipient has access to LexisNexis research services..

Note: You may share a folder with a maximum of 100 recipients.

To do this:

  1. Select the Folders link from the More drop-down list at the top of any page. The Folders page appears.
  2. Select a folder from the list of folders on the left side of the page.
  3. From the Actions drop-down list (next to the folder name at the top of the page), choose Share folder.
  4. On the Share with Others page, choose your sharing options:.To share with others inside your organization: Enter the user name (starting with last name), and select the user within your organization. To share with others outside of your organization: Enter the person's email address in the field. Once you share with a user outside of the organization, they will receive an email notifying of the invitation to the shared folder or item. The person must be a LexisNexis ID holder in order to sign in, accept the sharing invitation, and view the contents.
  5. Once the user is added, select Editor or Viewer. Editors may view and modify notes you save with the folder, and add notes of their own. Viewers may only view notes.
  6. Optionally, click Remove to remove any users from the selected list.
  7. Click Save.

The users you have shared with will be notified by email, and will find the folder in their Shared by others folder. You'll find the folder in your Shared by me folder.
