Publishing files or folders on Permanent.org

How to Publish a File or Folder in the Mobile App

Publishing a file or folder creates a publicly viewable copy of the item in your Public workspace. 

To publish a file, open the action menu for the file or folder you wish to publish in your Private Workspace by tapping the menu icon to the right of the file or folder name.



Tap the "Publish" button on the menu. A dialog box will appear that asks you to confirm that you wish to publish the item. 



Once you publish an item, we make a copy of it in your Public Workspace of your Permanent Archive. You can manage your new publicly shared files in your Public Workspace. Files and folders in your Public Workspace are featured in your Public Archive and are publicly viewable on the internet.

Please note that files that you publish from your Private Workspace will exist in both your Private Workspace and your Public Workspace. This means that each copy of the file goes towards your total storage count.
