It means that NDA signed contributor can also see the Google Docs that were only shared for * accounts?

(Henrik Mitsch) #3

It means that documents on Mozilla’s G Suite account can be shared with a group. An example would be that a G Drive folder is shared with the NDA group.

Does this help clarify things?

(Safwan Rahman) #4

It seems interesting! So now it will be possible to share documents with NDA contributors. :smile:

Exactly, this any many other user cases would help us to get better at being a truly participatory organization.
