Sharing Files from the Permanent App with a Share Link

You can share a file, multiple files, or entire folders in your archive with other Permanent members on the mobile app through generating a share link to view the selected files. With this share link, friends, family members, and colleagues can preview the files you have shared with them without a Permanent login, and can also log into their Permanent accounts to view the shared files in their archive. If you would rather export your files to share with family and friends, you can learn how to export files here.

To generate a share link for a file or folder, tap the menu icon to the right of the file or folder name, then tap Share Management. 

A new page will appear where you can create a link to share with others. 

To create the link, tap the Get Share Link button. A share link will appear, as well as options to manage the share. Tap Share Link to open your device's Share card and choose a location to share the link to. 

If you would like to change the settings for the link you have generated, tap the Link Settings button. You can learn more about managing link settings here. 

If you would like to make the share link inactive, tap the Revoke Link button.
