I have a question about file sharing in community. Basically, the question is why a community member (license: Customer Community Plus) doesn't see the Share option on the File List component? A community member cannot share a file uploaded in the community with other community members/groups using the Share option on the File List component in the same community. The file was uploaded by the community user and is owned by this user. I have attached a screenshot that visualize my question.

enter image description here

I also have read this article File Visibility and Sharing in Communities, but I still don't have a clue if community users can share files from the File List.

  • We ran into similar problem and sharing option is available only in classic. I forgot how exactly but we were able to get classic version of this page and it had share option.

  • I came across this Q&A because Salesforce's own documentation, "Share Files with Groups", states that Community/Experience Cloud users don't have access to a share button if the file originated from a community or is viewed in an Experience Cloud site. I am looking to give this ability to my community users, but it sounds like it's only possible with a custom solution at this point.

As of this post the current response from one of the Community Product Managers is this is working as expected and you need to share files in a Group or Feed by Posting on a Record. I am continuing to discuss the scenario with him and hoping for a more thorough response after they find the team who owns this particular component. I will update this Answer as new details come in.
