Sharing Anchored files through Outlook

  • Dark

This article will demonstrate how to securely share Anchored data through Outlook.

Step 1: Open a new message window, select "Attach File" to attach Anchored data. 

Step 2: Enter the details of the email body and select "Send". Anchor will display a window where two options are presented, "Share as link" and "Share as attachment". 

Step 3: Choose either Share as Link or Share as attachment. Select "Continue" and the email will be sent.

Share as link will deliver a read-only version of the file(s). The recipient will receive an email with a link to the Anchored file. When clicking the link, their browser will open a new window and prompt the user for their email address. Once the user enters their email address, a "One time password" will be sent. The user will enter this password and will be granted access to a view-only version of the file in their browser. 

Click Here to view the end user's experience of opening a shared link containing Anchored data.

Share as attachment should be used when collaborating or sharing data with someone that also has the Anchor agent on their endpoint. This gives the ability to view, edit, and download the shared data. The recipient will open the Anchored file(s) like a standard outlook attachment.
