You can type in a terminal the commands:

chown username.users /home/username/sharedfolder #username belonging to users group owns sharedfolder

chmod 770 /home/username/sharedfolder

Also you have to be sure that all users belongs to users group.

Another option is to use the GUI. Go to Places --> Home Folder and navigate until you'll see the desired folder, right click on it and chose Properties and Permissions tab. On Group option you an scroll until you reached the users group and give folder access and file access rights.

Good luck.

Can you help with this problem?
