ShareFile is all about sharing and collaborating on content. To that end, we are making the sharing experience and flow even easier, allowing you to share the way you want, with whom you want, faster than ever.
“We’re trying to reduce the complexity with the number of generated links per file,” says Alex Boyd, Sr Product Designer at Citrix. “This makes managing shares and access permissions less confusing.” With this new experience, sharing is more straightforward and intuitive, allowing users to get the links and settings they use most and get to the important tasks of sharing and collaborating in just a couple of clicks.
Most ShareFile users use Get a Link to share documents or folders with others, so to help users generate links more quickly and easily, creating a link is now front and center when users click on Share.
When selecting a file to share, the create-a-link option interface has been updated. The links generated are per-user. Other people with folder access cannot see the series of user generated links from another user. When viewing the pop-up, you will see a link ready to be copied. Default options are already set to the highest level of permissions allowed for the account, and the links do not expire. See the image below for the new interface.
There are a few options on the screen:
To create a link with different view and edit permissions, select the ellipses next to the copy button. The image below shows the location to click.
Within this screen there are three options:
Eliminate security concerns with multiple links created for your file. Users can now create and keep track of links in one location to eliminate unused and unwanted shares. Once links are generated, a list of outstanding links will be displayed.
