Step 5. If your credentials have been entered correctly then an icon for the Staff Workgroups Index will appear on your desktop and a finder window will open to the new location.

Step 6. You can then double click on the folder you are after. Initially a blank folder will open but after a few seconds the files and folders within this will appear that you have permissions to view.
