Disabeling "Anyone can share" should disable any Sharing options

It is currently the case in a Webex Meeting that not all sharing options are always disabled when "Anyone can share" (Menu > Participant > Anyone can share) is disabled. Of course, this does not affect to the host, co-host or presenter, for whom all sharing options are always available anyway, even if "Anyone can share" is deactivated, but normal users.


Specifically, if the host enable the "Share Document" option (Menu > Participant > Assign Privileges > Controls > Share Document) in the Webex-Meetings-Desktop-App, normal participants in the Webex-Meetings-Desktop-App can still upload files and start classic whiteboards into the Webex Meeting, even though "Anyone can share" is disabled. In terms of clear logic, if something is switched off, then it should really be switched off completely, this should not be possible. So if "Anyone can share" is disabled, there should no longer be a sharing option available for normal participant.


Please implement this clear logic accordingly.


Thank you very much!

    No change in Webex Meetings.app, will consider this in Webex.app.
