The VFS tab has a Workspaces view in which EFT Server- and Site-level administrators can:
Delete shared Workspaces
Add existing users to existing Workspaces
Modify participant permissions of shared Workspaces
(In v7.4.7 and later) When you send a file using the WTC, a "WorkspacesSendMessage" folder is created in the Virtual File System (VFS).
Sharing folders via the VFS tab
Workspaces cannot be created via the VFS tab.
External users cannot be invited via the VFS tab. External users can only be invited via the WTC.
Users joined to Workspaces via the VFS tab, unlike users joined via WTC, are not sent invitation notification emails.
Workspaces permissions may be granted via the VFS Workspaces view, however, the permissions may not be permitted. The VFS tab will appear to permit all user permissions to be granted to a Workspaces participant, however, the available permissions extend from the Workspaces owner's folder permissions. Suppose an EFT user creates a shared folder with only Upload permissions; an EFT administrator may invite participant1 to join the Workspaces folder, granting participant1 full administrative privileges to the folder. However, participant1 will receive an "access denied" response if they attempt to perform any actions within the folder other than upload, because the Workspaces folder respects the Workspaces owner's folder permissions.
