Then click the Add User button.
The new name will now appear as one of the specific users. Click the Done button to finalize the sharing.
All the workspaces will be visible. Click on your home workspace.
Once you are in your home director, select the data you want to share. You can share individual files, or folders. To share a folder, click on the line that has the name of that folder.
