    Autodesk Docs: Public File Sharing Links

    Do you use Autodesk Docs?  Would you like to create a link for an external customer to download a file?  Does this customer NOT use Autodesk Docs?  If so, read on.

    Public link creation in Autodesk Docs is off by default.  This means that your recipient must own Autodesk Docs and be logged in to view or download a file you have shared.  You’re presented with this option when sharing a file or folder by default.  Note the disabled public link option (Anyone with this link).

    To enable public links, go to Doc and Files.  Then click on Settings.


    Once enabled, here is how the sharing form appears.  The public link option is enabled, and the link can be copied and sent to anyone.
