Sharing Individual Items in a Shared Folder | Enterprise Account

Hi, we have been enterprise users since 2014. 

We currently used folders and share those with user groups. We would like to also share individual passwords from the shared folders with other users. 

There is no sharing icon on the items that are in shared folders. 

Does anyone have a solution to share individual items inside a shared folder?

Hi @Reactionalie,

 

Items that are in a shared folder that you'd like to then be re-shared to users outside of that shared folder would either need to be added to the Shared Folder, or you'd need to clone the item from the Shared Folder in to your Vault (or cloned then moved to a new/different shared folder) and shared with the desired user.

Re: Sharing Individual Items in a Shared Folder | Enterprise Account

Hi @RachelO 

 

Thank you for the suggestions. I don't think they will work for us. We can't clone items because then we would have to manage the password in 2 places (if anything were to change). 

 

It is unfortunate you can't share an individual item in a shared folder. We have a lot of contractors that we only want to share some passwords with, not everything for each client.

Re: Sharing Individual Items in a Shared Folder | Enterprise Account

I'm not sure how Enterprise accounts work, but with Teams accounts for a shared folder you can either share everything in a given shared folder by default with everyone assigned to that shared folder or you can set it to share only what you specifically  select. If you do that then you can select just the one record you want for the given person to whom you want to share just the one record from the shared folder.

This will work, but isn't a great solution because then every time you add a new item to the shared folder you need to manually add it to the shared items for each user of the folder, other than assumably the user(s) who only get some single shared items in that folder.

 

Really sharing is a poorly implemented system in LastPass. They really should just set it up like shared files in Windows NTFS or such and not make it 'so simple it is wrong' as it is now.
