You can also allow front-side users to manage the files and folders in the list. Go to the Plugin’s Settings tab to turn this feature on.
Here we use a folder called “Front-End” to hold the files for our front-end users. These users will be able to create and use sub-folders, but they cannot move upwards into the main list.

Move ItemChoose where to move this item. The move will not complete if the item name is found at the destination.
NOTE – Users cannot see the parent folder name, “Front-End”, or move items to folders above the location defined in the shortcode.
This works well for small file lists, but when you need more control and separation, consider adding the File Access Manager extension to allow for multiple file lists. Each list will have completely separate settings and file list directory.
