Your Public folder allows you to move selected files to a location within My Docs Online where the files can be “served” to any user’s browser using a file-specific URL. URLs pointing to files in your Public folder can be used in web pages, copied into your emails or other documents, etc.

To use this feature follow these steps:

  • If you don’t have a Public folder, create one.
    Login to your account and look at the list of folders. If you don’t see one named Public, click the Create Folder button and create a folder named Public.
  • Upload a file (or move a file from another folder). Duplicate file names are not allowed in the Public folder.
  • Click the action bar and then select details for the file in the public folder.   You’ll see “Public Link” and an associated link that is formed like this one: where user-id is replaced by your My Docs Online login ID and filename is replaced by the name of the specific file. You can highlight and copy this link to use in emails, on web pages, etc. Try pasting it into your browser’s Address field to see how it works.
