Sharing Assets

Follow

You can share assets with other users by emailing a link or download of the asset or sending it via Box or Dropbox.  

This article reviews the following topics:

  • Email a link
  • Email a download
  • Copy and Paste Download Links
  • Share multiple assets

 

Email a Link: 

Users with view permission can email a link to an asset to other users. The recipient will need to log in to access the asset, so they’ll need to be a Webdam user.

  • Log into Webdam and select the asset(s) you want to share.
  • Click  in the actions toolbar of the asset details page and select Email link.

  • Complete the form with an optional subject and message.

  • Click Send.

Email a Download:

Users with download permission can email a download of that asset to other users. The recipient does not need to be a Webdam user, however they will only be able to download the asset for a set amount of time.

  • Log into Webdam and select the asset(s) you want to share.

  • Click  in the actions toolbar of the asset details page and select Email download.

  • Click Send.

Copy and Paste Download Links

You can also quickly copy a download link to your clipboard for quick insertion into a message or email. These links are able to be accessed for up to 72 hours.

  • Double click the asset you'd like to share to pull up the asset details page.
  • Click the sharing options icon Share_icon.png and select Download Link. A banner will appear along the bottom border of the asset details panel confirming the link has been copied to your clipboard.
