Changing Permissions

I have written a code that writes a file to a folder, but when another user tries to run the code, it says that permissions is denied at the point where the file is to be written. I have tried changing the permissions of the folder(using chmod) and the files as they are written(using os.fdopen( in python). Should I try something else, or do you need to give the other people in the lab access to the folder in order for it to work?

There are two folders I need them to have write permissions for in order for the code to work, and they are at /mnt/mobydisk/gropushares/apoholek/RNAseq_Pipeline/inputFiles and /mnt/mobydisk/groupshares/apoholek/RNAseq_Pipeline/sbatchFiles

Any help would be much appreciated
