Generate a Link to a Public Item

You can generate a link to items that have previously been made public, so you can email the link to people who do not have access to Viewpoint for Projects™ and so they can download the item.

  1. In the navigation tree, select the container with the public items.
  2. Right-click on the mouse icon for an item and click Copy public link or Copy public link (all revisions).
    The Share Public File/Folder window appears.
  3. Click Copy to copy the link to share with users requiring access to the item.
  4. (Optional) Select the Include Sub Folders check box to share sub folders with users requiring access at the folder level.
  5. (Optional) Select the Primary Files Only check box to allow access only to a folder's primary files.
  6. (Optional) Select the Select Link Expiration Date check box to specify a date that availability to the linked item(s) expires.
  7. Click Close to close out of the Share Public File/Folder window.
When users click the link you share with them, they will be directed to the Public Files page, where they can download the item(s) you shared with them.
