Sharing a link - Amazon WorkDocs

Sharing a link

If your site administrator enables link sharing, you can share your Amazon WorkDocs files and folders by sharing links them. You can share file links inside and outside your organization, but you can only share folder links internally.

In addition, you can configure a file link to allow access to site members only, or to anyone on the internet. Site members can view, comment on, update, or delete a file. Public links only allow viewing. You can also set an expiration date and a 4-digit passcode for access to the file.

If you don't see the commands listed in the following steps, ask your administrator to enable link sharing.

To share a link
  1. In the web client, select the file or folder to share.

  2. Choose Share, Share a link.

  3. For Link access level, select the desired access level. Options:

    • Off – No access is allowed.

    • View – View only access is allowed to anyone inside your Amazon WorkDocs organization.

    • View and edit – View and edit access is allowed to anyone inside your Amazon WorkDocs organization.

    • Public (file links only) – Anyone who has the link can view the file, whether they are outside or inside your Amazon WorkDocs organization.

  4. Optionally, for Link expiry date, choose the date when the link expires. The link expires at midnight on the specified date.

  5. Optionally, for Passcode, enter a 4-digit access code that link recipients must enter to access the content.

  6. Choose Create & Copy.

    Amazon WorkDocs copies the link to your clipboard for sharing.
