When you are part of a workspace as an Editor or Doc Maker, you'll be able to see the entire shared folder catalog. You can also decide to join or leave folders based on your interests.

To view all of the shared folders in your workspace, click on "+" next to Folders in the left-hand menu, then "See all folders."

To join a folder, hover over the folder's name and click the Join button. 

To leave a folder, hover over the folder's name and click the Leave button.

Private Folders

Note: Private folders are available for Makers on the team plan or higher.

If you are a member of the folder, you can also decide to keep it private under its Folder settings. This will remove the folder from the workspace catalog for others to join.


When a new doc is added to a folder, every Editor that is a member of the folder will automatically get access. If that same doc is removed from the folder, Editors will then lose access unless they were explicitly shared to the doc. If an Editor was added directly to a doc within a private folder, not the folder itself, that Editor will only have access to that specific doc and not the entire private folder.

What if everyone leaves a private folder?

We have you covered—the last person in the folder will not be able to leave it.

How do I remove someone from a folder?

Any member of a folder can remove other members of the folder. This is available in the folder's Folder settings in the folder members list.
