Updates to file permissions

April 2nd, 2024

We've been working to simplify and solidify our file permissions model. One of the major points of confusion in the past was the ability to set a file's permissions to shared or public, even while it was housed within your "Private queries" folder.

Recognizing that this option could potentially lead to confusion or even risk, we've decided that a file located in your private folder should only be accessible by you.

Today, we’ve completed an update to apply the correct permissions to all existing files based on the folder they are contained in. It is now no longer possible to alter the permissions to shared while the file remains in a private folder. If you’ve been relying on a shared/public link to one of your private files, this change will affect you. To address this, you will need to move these files into the shared team folder.

We recommend that you restart the app to ensure that all permission data is up-to-date within your view. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you encounter any issues.
