Managing your Document Request


You can view all the links you've created from Request Link under My Workspace > Public Share node on the left panel of the Docsvault interface.


The list displays the location, created date, recipients, expiry date and the creator name of the document request link.

If the link is sent through your own email software, and no tracking information is required to use the link, ‘Anonymous’ will be shown as the sender of the files.


You can anytime create, resend, edit or expiry a link from the tab below the toolbar.
