Can you change a private folder to a shared folder

Technote (FAQ)


Question

In Notes, private folders are only visible to a mail file owner. Other users with manager-level access to that mail file (on the Access Control List [ACL]) cannot view the contents of private folders. Is it possible to change a private folder to a shared folder?

Answer

You cannot "change" a private folder to a shared folder but you can manually or programmatically move the documents from a private folder into a shared folder.
