Sharing files using download or view links

Using links to share content

If your administrator assigns appropriate permissions to you, you can create links to share files or folders. 

After you create links, you can share them by:

  • Providing inSync usernames of the users with whom you want to share the link. Such users receive inSync-generated emails containing link details. 
  • Sharing link details via separate emails.

You can create two types of links to share content.

Type Description
View links

Note: The inSync Viewer supports Microsoft® Office documents (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) and PDF files only. Hidden files in a PowerPoint presentation are displayed in the viewer.
Download links Download links to files.
