You can share a file, a folder, or any combination of files and folders as a MediaSilo Review Link, or as a branded Presentation. In this article, we will cover how to create a Review Link for review and approval, how to choose your link settings, and how to share files as a Presentation.
Share Files and Folders for Review and Approval
To share files in a Review Link, select the files or folders you wish to share, and click the paper airplane icon near the top-right corner of the page. As an alternative, you can right-click a file or folder and select Share > Review Link.
Note: To select a combination of files and folders, hold the Command key (on a Mac) or the Control key (on a PC) and click on the items you want to share. Then, click the paper airplane icon.
Choose who can view your files by selecting one of three options from the Access menu:
Public: Anyone with the link can access the link and view its contents, whether or not they have a MediaSilo account.
Password protected: Anyone with the link has the ability to view the link if they know the password.
Workspace users: Only the workspace users you list in the Recipients section can view the contents of the link.
Expiration: You can set an expiration date, or set the link to never expire. At any point, you can un-expire a link or change the expiration date. To learn more, please visit our article on updating existing links.
Allow downloads: You can allow or restrict the ability to download files from a link. To allow downloads, you must have download permission in the project that contains the files.
Enable feedback: When this toggle is on, viewers have access to commenting and annotation tools to leave feedback. These tools are hidden when the toggle is off. To enable feedback, you must have commenting permission in the project that contains the files.
On this link only: This creates a private review session, where comments are only visible to people with the review link. When this toggle is off, comments are visible to any workspace user with access to the asset.
Notifications: Click the notifications button in the top-right corner of the Share window (next to the “X” button) to turn notifications on or off. When notifications are on, you are notified by email when your link is viewed. Note that you are still notified of comments and approvals whether this toggle is on or off.
Once you have applied your link settings, click “Create Link.”
Share Files and Folders from the Collection Bin
The Collection Bin allows you to group files and folders from different projects and then share them all at once. First, click the Collection Bin icon toward the bottom of the left-side navigation bar. Then, start dragging files and folders into the bin.
To share the contents of the bin, click the paper airplane icon along the bottom. You can share these assets as either a Review Link or a Presentation.
Share Files and Folders as a Presentation
In addition to a Review Link, you can share content in a Presentation. Presentations are focused on showcasing your work, so commenting and annotation features are not included.
When creating a Presentation, you can choose from a library of templates to present your work. A Presentation template automatically displays your brand logo at the top of the page. If you are an account administrator, you can upload your brand logo by going to Administration > Branding > Set Brand Logo. You only need to complete this step one time; once your logo is uploaded, it’s applied to all your Presentations.
Once you choose your settings, click "Get Link" to copy the link and start sharing the Presentation with your audience.
Share a Playlist as a Presentation
A playlist is a curated collection of assets that can include files, folders, or a combination of both. You can learn more about playlists here.
To share a playlist as a Presentation, open the drawer on the right side of the page, and go to the Playlists tab.
