Public Share show password

Under Consideration

Following settings:

Default Share Type: Password Protected Share

Public Shares Must Be Password Protected: Enabled

When sharing a file or folder, there is a popup with the link of the share, but to get to the share password, you have to additionally go to the advanced settings.

If the password is automatically generated, please show it also in the popup.

Good point, understand the usability issue here. We will consider this feature enhancement.


i have additionally some points for usability. If Public Shares Must Be Password Protected: Enabled then grey out the option for changing it. A popup after clicking update should not be necessary.


Also if Guest Accounts are not allowed by policy, make this visible in the Add Guest and not after trying to add one.
