Create Shared Files Library In Salesforce

Hello Friends! Currently, in Salesforce's Lightning Experience, there is no option to create and share the files library with the users. In this post, I will show you how to create a shared files library in Salesforce (like the standard Asset Library), add users and add files to it.

Now that you have already created your own files library, you can go back to Lightning Experience and start sharing files from your library. For any additional modifications to the library, you might need to come back to Salesforce Classic.

  1. Switch to Lightning Experience
  2. Go to the Files tab and then click on Libraries from the side menu.
