Obviously, your work within Frontify isn’t done once you’ve set up your brand hub. You’ll experience the real value of Frontify once you share your documentations with all relevant brand stakeholders. One way to do so is by sharing a public link.
You’ll find the public sharing link by clicking the share icon in the power bar to your left and then switching to the ‘Public Link’ tab.
There, you have different options at your disposal to set limitations to the public link. First, you can decide on whether or not people without a Frontify account can use the public link. Second, you can define terms & conditions, which have to be agreed on before viewing your Brand Portal content. Third, you can further granulate public access, by defining the target groups which should be able to view your Brand Portal.
Once done, simply click on the ‘Copy’ button next to the public link and share it with your people.
Note: Only Owners can turn on public links. Once the public link has been activated, Editors are able to copy and share the link. Editors, however, can not turn on/off public sharing.
Are Public Links Searchable on Search Engines?
By default, public links will not be indexed by search engines because that is disabled for everything in Frontify with a robots.txt. However, Frontify links are still crawled by search engines.
This means that your Guidelines on Frontify may result in search engines. Because the links are not indexed, the result will not show any descriptive information. It will look like this:
