  • @David Reed: Thank you for your quick response. yes, i have added sharing button on page layout. standard user can able to see and edit the records created by admin but sharing button in not visible on detail page when user want to share that record to others. Can you please let me know your thoughts. Commented Jul 17, 2018 at 15:06
  • If anyone's looking for this in the Lightning UI, look no more. There is still NO Sharing button in the Lightning UI. See this help article and this IdeaExchange idea. Confirmed as of the Winter '20 release. Crazy that this still hasn't been prioritized... Commented Oct 30, 2019 at 4:44

Users will only see the Sharing button when a number of criteria are met, including:

  • The Sharing button is on the page layout.
  • The organization-wide default is not Public Read/Write.
  • The user has permission to share the record.

The final point appears to be what's tripping you up here. Your platform users don't own the records (the system administrator does) and they're not above the owner in the role hierarchy. As a consequence, they don't have the right to share that particular record. Offering them read/write access doesn't grant permission to share to other users.
