Filr assigns URLs to each file and folder in the Filr system. You can use these URLs (called Permalinks) as a quick way to either point users to a file or folder or to download a file that is located in the Filr system.
IMPORTANT:Users must already have access to the file or folder via an individual share or a public share in order to access the file or folder from a permalink. Just because a user has a permalink to a file or folder does not necessarily mean that user has access to view the file or folder or to download the file by clicking on a permalink. For information about how to share a file or folder, see Section 3.2, Sharing Files and Section 3.3, Sharing Folders.
To obtain a permalink for a file or folder:
Navigate to the location of the file or folder for which you want to obtain the permalink.
(Conditional) To obtain a permalink for a file, click the drop-down arrow next to the file, then click.
(Conditional) To obtain a permalink for a folder, click the folder name.
Click thelink at the bottom of the page.
Copy one of the available permalinks. After a user clicks the permalink, the function of the permalink differs depending on which link is used:
Permalink: Links to the file or folder in Filr. Users who are not already logged in are prompted to log in, unless the file or folder is shared with the public.
File Download Permalink: (Does not apply to folders) Depending on browser settings, users are either prompted to download or open the file, or the file is automatically opened. This link allows users to access the file directly.
