Link Sharing Security Shares Whole Account

Steps to reproduce

MyFiles > (my Structure) Websites > Client1
MyFiles > (my Structure) Websites > Client2
I click Get Link while in Client1, share in a different browser I’m not logged into to see how it looks for a client, the client can click Websites to see all Clients then look at each client, the shared link should set the share to the folder its shared from as root

Expected result

What do you expect to see after carrying out the steps above?
When I share a link from Client1 e.g.
MyFiles > (my Structure) Websites > Client1, I expect that shared link not be able to go back any further than Client1, but it goes back to Websites when Im not logged in

Actual result

Instead of the expected result, what happened?
Sharing a link gives anyone I share it with access to see everything from MyFiles

Which browser are you using? Logged into Chrome, tested shared link on Firefox & Opera

Additional comments

Are you sure you aren’t clicking Share on the MyFiles folder?

Are you sure the folder isn’t publicly shared?

If you click Share only on document Client1 then the resulting link will not allow someone to explore elsewhere.

I couldn’t reproduce what you described.

I suspect the confusion here is that you want to share a node (bullet point item). Dynalist does not support that. You can only share an entire document, or folder of documents. Nothing more narrow than that.

You’re not the first person to complain about it. It’s one nice feature which Workflowy has that Dynalist does not.

I see “Get Link” in the screenshot. What that does is make a link which automatically zooms to a particular node. It doesn’t affect sharing, which is done by right clicking the document (or folder) in the left sidebar.
