Sharing a Link

You can copy hyperlinks to content stored in Amazon WorkDocs. Share file links with coworkers and external partners, both inside and outside your organization. Folder links can only be shared with internal site members.

You can configure file links to allow access to site members only, or to anyone on the internet. Site members can view, comment, update, and delete. Public links are restricted to viewing only. For additional security, you can set an expiration date and a 4-digit passcode for access to your content.
