Granting access to sheets, bookmarks, and stories

In the app overview, you can make sheets, bookmarks, and stories public or private. You can also re-order sheets and stories.

To be able to see public sheets, bookmarks, and stories, you need Can view permissions in the associated shared space. You can also view public content in individual apps that have been shared with you. To be able to make these items public or private in a shared space, you need Can edit or higher permissions in the space.

For information about required permissions for publishing and making app content private in a managed space, see Managing permissions in managed spaces.

New items added to the app overview are always private. Private items are only visible to you. If you make an item public, you are no longer the owner. If you make an item private, you become the owner.

You can reorder sheets and stories by dragging them.

Information noteIf you can't drag sheets to re-order them, disable Touch screen mode. Click the navigation button (Navigation) and use the toggle for Navigation.
