ShareSync: Sharing Links

You are here:

Send link functionality provides the following features:

  • Quickly and securely share large files or folders with anyone (e.g. share documents which are too large to share via email)
  • Make content available in download-only mode
  • Use our integrated email link functionality to send link or just copy/paste links into IM, email, and SMS clients
  • Share files with users outside of your organization, who do not have ShareSync installed. (i.e. Recipients do not need to download/install the client as files are made available to them via the Web Interface)
  • Single-link-per-file model

Note: Links never expire.

Send link functionality is available in:
