Share Multiple Files in a Folder Using Public Links

What’s better than sharing a single file with a public link? Sharing a bunch of files at once! You can create public links to share folders, giving recipients inside or outside your company access to sets of files. The public link is an encrypted URL. Folder Sharing in Lightning Experience provides an alternative to Content Packs in Classic.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience in Professional, Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited editions.

Why: Anyone with the link can view and download the files in the folder. You can change the folder’s contents at any time, and the changes occur in real time. To remove access to the folder, delete the link. To make the folder public again, create a new link.

How: Add the link in the folder’s row-level actions by clicking Public Link. Delete the link from the same dialog by clicking the trash can.

Share the folder by copying the public link.
