How can I make a Personal Authoring Folder for authors?

Company Administrators can grant users access to store content in a personal authoring folder that is only visible to them by default. When a Personal Authoring Folder is created, the user automatically has viewing and authoring permissions to that folder.


Company Administrators can follow the below steps to set up a personal authoring folder. 

  1. Navigate to Administration via the user icon in the top right in Brainshark.
  2. Click Users, then Manage users from the menu on the left.
  3. Search for the user, and select the three dots (ellipses) to the right of the Active column. You will need to hover your mouse to see this button (see below).
  4. In the drop-down menu, select Edit Profile.
  5. Scroll down to the User properties section and select the checkbox for Create a personal authoring folder for this user.
  6. Click Submit to store changes moving forward. 


  • Company Administrators can also enable this option in bulk by entering a number "1" in column L of a Bulk User Upload spreadsheet. 
  • If desired, an Administrator can expand Viewing, Authoring, or Administrative folder permissions to other users from the Manage Folders section of Administration
