About using links to share content

If your inSync administrator assigned appropriate privileges to you, you can share your inSync Share data by creating links. 

You can create two types of links:

  • View links: View-only links for data that you shared.
The inSync Viewer supports Microsoft® Office documents (Word, Excel, and PPT) and PDF files only.
  • Download links: Download links to data that you shared.
