Simple Share provides the User the ability to share assets within a Folder or Collection in the XDAM system with Internal Users and External Users or "Guest". It also allows sharing with groups of users (internal or external).


The targeted user will receive an email with a link to access the shared Folder or Collection. Each Folder or Collection shared is done via a URL  that is unique to the recipient and contains the needed login credentials to access the shared assets. An optional permissions such as "Download" and/or "Approve" can be provided. An Expiration Date of access can also be set by the User who shared the assets.


The Share icon clip0999 is located in both the Asset Viewer and Dashboard user interface.
