It's easy to have your blogs, emails, or web pages point to any stored File in your account. For every document that you create in your account, Keep&Share automatically generates a link for that document. At any time you can copy that link and post it anywhere that you choose. Follow the steps in the image below to copy the link for your document:

At the bottom of your Document, you'll notice that there are two URL options. The first is the main URL link that looks like an average website link. The second URL, the short URL, is also available for copying.

The short URL is a shorter version of the first URL listed. The reason we give you a shorter URL option is that sometimes short URLs are easier to work with. For social media services that have limited characters such as Twitter, short URLs give you the ability to post links using as few characters as possible. Short URLs are also easier to use in emails. Sometimes if a longer URL is split into two lines on an email the URL can lead to the wrong address as part of the link has been cut off.

Copying links from the “Share” dialog

If you click on the gray “Share” button above your document, you will have access to two other links that you can copy and share. The first link is the short URL. This is the same short URL that is available to you when you click on the “link & embed” link at the bottom of your document. You should use this link if you have your file publicly shared or shared on a limited basis.

The second link is the Private Sharing Link. The Private Sharing Link is a link that you can copy and share with anyone, regardless of whether they have a Keep&Share account or not. This link allows you to keep your items shared privately, but you can give this link to others to access your files and they will not be required to log into a Keep&Share account. No one without this link can see your files.

Note: You can only share live links of your Documents to members of your Share List. To make links to your Document accessible to anyone online, your Document would have to be Publicly Shared.

If you are looking to share the link to a PDF document you’ve uploaded into Keep&Share, there will four options for links you can copy to share. Learn more about copying links to PDF documents.

Note: that you can also use URL links to almost any kind of Keep&Share application, and you can also embed your Keep&Share applications inside of web pages on other websites.
