Sharing a Vault with Guests and Clients

Using the Manage Group Members feature, you can give guests and clients access to your account without fear of other users gaining access to documents you don't want them to see.

SmartVault offers three Group Members options:

  • Vault Manager—Users in this group have full access (read, write, create, delete) and can invite other clients or add users not included in the vault's access.
  • Vault Full Access—Users in this group have full access (read, write, create, delete) but cannot invite other users.
  • Vault Read Only—Users in this group can only read and download from the vault. With this access, they cannot upload, overwrite, or delete from the vault.


The selected option will determine the user's access to the vault and its folders.
