Share file links

If you want to share a file with someone without requiring them to login, you can easily send them a direct link to the file.

You can adjust the link’s options to decide if it should be a Download or a Preview link, set an expiration date for the link, and write a message to the recipients.

  • Share file link [Download view]

    If you check the Download checkbox the recipients will be directed to a branded download page where from the file can be downloaded as a zip file.

  • Share file link [Preview View]

    If you check the Preview checkbox the recipients will be directed to a branded preview page where from the file can be previewed, commented and downloaded.

Notice: You have always two options for dispatching share links: you can email the link directly from the Share window and specify specific link recipients in the “Add email” field. Or you can copy and paste the link into another place (your email application, social media, your company’s website, etc.)

If you only need to specify a handful of link recipients, go with the first option. Just enter the email addresses of the recipients, enter a personal message, and click Send.

Notice: If there are folders between your selected files, you will only have the option to share as a Download view.
Notice: If you check Save as default message the message you have entered will be used as template for your future messages. The template will be saved on your computer only. Cool little feature for your personal email signature etc.
