1. Invite collaborators at the lowest level of the folder hierarchy possible

2. Give your folders specific names, keeping in mind who they will be shared with

3. Create separate folders for internal and external collaboration: i.e. drafts folders for yourself and your team and final folders with versions ready to be shared
