Make a public link to a cubby, folder, or individual file.
Public Link Basics
- This is the sharing option to use when you want folks to grab your stuff and go
- Anyone with the link can view or download the file, folder, or cubby contents
- They cannot make changes
- Your link is not indexed by search engines unless you place the link on a site that gets indexed
- Anyone with the link can share it with others, so think carefully before sharing links to sensitive content!
Create a link for an entire cubby using the Cubby application (Windows or Mac)
The Cubby application allows you to make a link for an entire cubby:
- Open Cubby, the desktop application.
- If the folder you want to share isn't a cubby, drag it onto the Cubby interface.
- Click the link icon (it looks like a chain). Don't see the icon? Hold your mouse over the cubby.
- Remember! To link to a cubby, it must be synced to the cloud.
Create a link to a file or folder using the Cubby application
On a Mac, you can create a public link directly from the Finder menu.
On a Windows PC, you can also create a public link using the context menu (right-click menu):
- On a Windows PC, open the cubby containing the file or folder you want to share.
- Right-click the file or folder you want to share and select Cubby > public link.
Create a link via cubby.com
Use cubby.com when you want to make a link to a specific file, folder, or an entire Cubby:
- Go to cubby.com.
- Find the file you want to share.
- Right-click the file and select link.
- Copy the link.
