Sharing Productions in GoldFynch

You can share a production's zip file directly from the production interface without having to download the file. The case is shared through a 'share link' that GoldFynch generates which you can either copy and paste to the person you wish to share the case with, or which GoldFynch can automatically email to them.

Additionally, you will be notified of the time and date the shared production was downloaded.

Note: The links for the shared productions will expire after either the duration or the number of downloads you have selected depending on whichever occurs first. For example, if you have selected 1 day and 2 downloads in the expires after field and if the person you have shared the link with does not access it within 24hrs of receiving it, the link will expire even though nothing has been downloaded.

Note: In case you have not checked the Automatically email invite to user option then you need to copy the link and send it as a separate message to the user. In the status of the shared production, you can see that an email was not sent.

Stop sharing production

You can always invalidate a share link by clicking the Revoke button on the right of the person's name/email address, preventing them from being able to access or download the production file.
