Configuring Public URLs

A public URL allows external senders to submit packages to registered users and dropboxes. External senders no longer need to be individually invited to submit a package, although that functionality still exists. When a public URL is enabled and shared to an external sender, the external sender can take the following actions to send a package.
  1. The external sender clicks the Public URL (which could be for either a dropbox or a registered Faspex user).
  2. The sender is directed to page and asked to enter an email address.
  3. A private link is automatically emailed to the sender.
  4. The sender clicks the private link and is automatically redirected to a dropbox or Faspex user package submission page.
  5. Once the package is submitted through the private link, the dropbox or Faspex user can download the package by going to Received.
The following describes how to enable a public links.
  1. Go to Server > Configuration > Security and find the Outside Email Addresses section.
  2. Select Allow public submission URLs and choose Allow.
    Choosing Allow turns on the public URL feature for all Faspex dropboxes and registered users.
  3. Select Allow dropboxes to individually enable/disable their own public URLs to allow dropbox and global admins to override the server setting and turn off this feature for individual dropboxes.
When public URLs are allowed, all users can use public submission unless otherwise configured by an admin. Users must enable the feature in their user preferences. For more information, see Enabling and Sharing your Public URL. Admins can enable or disable the Public URL feature for specific users despite global settings by going to Accounts, selecting the user, going to the Permissions section, and choosing Allow, or Deny for Allow public submission urls.
