Using connections make full collaboration and file sharing with external partners possible, but public links offer a way to share items stored in Workplace with a wider audience.

A public link can be created for any project, folder or file.

Depending on the settings you select when creating public links, you can:

  • Allow public recipients to view, download, and upload files.
  • Allow public link recipients to overwrite the files you share with them.
  • Provide an upload-only link where public link recipients can drop files.
  • Send a public link to an Office file (.docx, .pptx, .xlsx), which public link recipients can edit via Office 365.

Editing with Microsoft Office requires a MS Office 365 commercial or business account.

To create a public link, you must either own the project or have Public Links permissions for the item. Refer to Manage Project, Folder, and File Shares.
