Sharing lets you give access to Assets or Collections to users that otherwise would be unable to access them. There are two types of users that might access a share:
- Internal Users that have an iconik account.
- External Users that don't have an iconik account.
Shares are created and sent to recipients. The link to the asset or collection that the recipients receives has an expiry date, and you can select the functionality the recipient is allowed when creating the share.
After the expiry date the link will not work. Create a new share if you want to give additional access or extend the expiry date.
Each recipient of a share link get their own unique share link in an email. This can be tracked, and you will be able to see how many times a unique recipient uses the link.
The link should not be shared by users, instead add each user into the share and they will get their own unique link which you can track
The exception to this is if you manually generate a sharable link that you can copy and paste where you like. We would advise to use the built in functionality for sending out shares instead of distributing links that you generate yourself.
