Public Link For Viewing Sensitive Documents

Public links in SynaMan allow a foreign user to upload or download files to your SynaMan server easily. In addition to these uploading and downloading links, SynaMan offers a third type of public link that can be used to view documents only. The recipient of these links is restricted from modifying, printing, or using copy/paste operations on the document.
