Step 5: Managing Public files



Here you can explore what's in the third tab in the Company Manager area: Public files.
This is the first of five features that Company Mnangers can decide to enable for use within all their organization's Huddle Accounts. The other four features they have control over are in the Security tab, which will be covered in the next article. 

This article will cover:

I) Public Link explained

II) Enabling Public Link

III) Managing Public files


I) Public Link explained


Huddle's Public Link feature allows users to create Public files. These files are pushed outside of Huddle and can be accessed by people who are not users of the software. 

This is a useful feature for teams that produce externally facing content such as Marketing. Public Link is often used for things like rotas, timetables, newsletters and promotional content for campaigns.

Enabling Public Link is controlled at two levels. Company Managers decide whether to enable this feature for the Accounts under their Company. Then Workspace Managers decide whether or not they want to leave this feature switched on inside their Workspace(s).
