Granting Power User Ability to Create Global Documents

Create Global Document Privilege allows Power Users and Admins to designate a Document as as "Global Document", share it with specific Types of Users within a Group and see Global Documents menu on the upper toolbar. To be able to create a Global Document, Power Users have to be granted a specific Privilege. This article describes the steps an Administrator should take to give the Power User ability to create Global Documents.
