➔ The right "read" regroups the rights to browse, consult and download.
➔ You can invite only one people at time, if you need to invite more, think of using groups.
➔ When your recipient will accept sharing, he will have to create an account, which only take seconds, to confirm his ID and password he will have to use after.
➔ One an external has been invited, and has joined a folder, he can be invited on other locations by his user name.
