Tickets

Tickets:

Tickets are a reliable way to share files, I would recommend using this WebSpace function over altering your sharing permissions. Issuing a ticket to a file or directory is a way to share documents and retain a measure of security. A ticket is a hyperlink to your file that may be used for a limited amount of time or a limited number of visits.

Creating a ticket:

  • Click on "tickets"
  • Click on "create a ticket for this resource"
  • Set the desired limits for access to the file, click "Ok"
  • WebSpace will produce a direct link and an email link
  • Copy and paste either of these links in an email to your collaborators

To send your file ticket to others, it is easiest to simply copy and paste the address into the email system you normally use. While there is an "email link" option, this option requires some advance set up.

Tickets are a reliable way to share files; I would recommend using this WebSpace function over altering your sharing permissions.
