Managing Shared Items using Distribution Lists
When distribution lists are used to manage shared items, members of the distribution list are automatically granted rights to the shared item. Administrators manage the shares from the DL’s Shares tab. All members of the list have the same share privileges that the grantee defined for the shared folder. When a member is removed from the distribution list, the share privileges associated with the DL are revoked.
Users must notify the administrator that they have shared a folder with the distribution list. When the administrator is notified, the administrator publishes the shared item in the Shares tab to make the shared item available to members of the DL. When a new shared is published, existing members of the DL are automatically notified of the new shared item.
New members added to the distribution list can be automatically notified about items that are shared with them. They can accept the shared item from their ZWC Preferences>Sharing page.
