Introducing Link Sharing

Jonathan Lin · Fri, Dec 29 2017 in Updates

Link sharing is available to all PageDash users.

There are two kinds of links:

  1. Private links
  2. Public links

Private links are accessible to logged in users. Currently that means yourself, but in the future it may also include users who have access to your shared collections/folders (a future feature).

Public links are accessible to anyone, regardless of whether they are PageDash users.

To copy the private link, click on the menu and click on “Copy private link”. The private link is copied to the clipboard. Click on “Open in new tab” to open the private link in a new tab.

To generate a public link, either click on the “link” icon or click on the menu and click on “Share…”.

A “Share Page” menu popup appears.

Click on “Generate public link” to generate a public link for the selected page. You can click on the “copy” icon next to the generated link to copy the public link.

Click on “Deactivate link” to deactivate this link. People who have this link will not be able to access this page ever again, even if you generate another link. A different link will be generated each time.

One thing bears mentioning though. Link sharing is a very powerful tool, so please use it responsibly. For example, if you want to share paid or exclusive content with your friends and family, it probably isn’t the best idea to put the generated link on social media, as it may attract the attention of the publisher and cause them to initiate a takedown notice of the shared page. I cannot help but obey the law, so again, please use this feature very responsibly.

That’s it. Easy, wasn’t it?
