Click on the settings options

Link Settings

Select the options for the type of sharing you wish to allow:

  • Anyone with the link:  Gives access to anyone who receives this link, whether they receive it directly from you or forwarded from someone else. This may include people outside of TCC even if they are not a Student/professor/staff.
  • People in TCC with the link:  Gives anyone in TCC who has the link access to the file, whether they receive it directly from you or forwarded from someone else.
  • People with existing access:  Gives access to people who already have access to the folder where the content is located.
  • Specific People:  Gives access only to the people you specify, although other people may already have access. If people forward the sharing invitation, only people who already have access to the item will be able to use the link.
  • Allow editing:   When you share items with this type of link, people can edit files, can add files in a shared folder, and can delete files in a shared folder if they're signed in. Recipients can forward the link, change the list of people sharing the files or folder, and change permissions for recipients. If you're sharing a folder, people with Edit permissions can copy, move, edit, rename, share, and delete anything in the folder.  To give them read only access, remove the blue check.
  • You can set a date for when the sharing will expire.
  • You can set a password on the content.
  • You can block the downloading of the content.
