6.2 Understanding External Users

Users external to your organization can access your Filr site at no additional cost. External users in Novell Filr do not count as a licensed Filr user, but they have their own individual user account (unlike the Guest user) and can participate in Filr workspaces like any other user.

An example of an external user might be a contractor who interacts with the corporation for only a couple months a year, who needs access to the system as a defined user but does not need consistent access to the system.

External users are added to the Filr system when a workspace, folder, or entry is shared with them. You as the Filr administrator determines whether users can share externally. For information about how to enable this functionality, see Section 6.3, Enabling Users to Share.
