Multiple Paths/Folders Request

Paul L 3 years ago in Feature requests updated by Rudhra 2 months ago 8

I would like to request the ability to assign more than one path/folder to each user like this...

or like this...


This would be awesome, that would be the most comfortable solution when managing nested shares gets tricky (as in my case)

I need that same option, multi location


Is this functionality included in a next system release/upgrade?

Me too agree it will fix many sharing issues.

I know this is rather old, but perhaps people will come back to see this, it might solve their problems: 

You can always symlink folders into a user's Filerun home folder. If you're using docker, you have to mount those folders as volumes instead (in the docker-compose.yml), as symlinks won't work correctly with docker, e.g.:


  - /home/user/filerun/user-files:/user-files 

  - /home/some_other_shared_folder:/user-files/some_other_shared_folder

While this works great for file access, there is a downside that needs to be mentioned. That is, collaboration via any FileRun-related metadata, such as labels, tags, comments, metadata and also e-mail notifications no longer work between users that access the same files, because FileRun is referencing the files by their paths, and having symlinks means users access the same files via different paths.

@razvan I do that and experience this issue (can't move newly created folders within that shared volume to trash, files work fine): https://feedback.filerun.com/en/communities/1/topics/1153-failed-to-move-item-to-trash-folder

Do you have the same experience?
