  • Edit File Name: Change the name of the file for the Review Link. This will not change the name of the file within Assemble.
  • Share as Presentation: This will turn on presentation mode, which will display the file full screen and disable comments. It will also give the viewer the ability to switch between day and night mode. 
  • Enable Download: This will enable viewers to download the file directly from the review link.
  • Enable Password Protection: Add a password that must be entered before anyone can view the Review Link.

Once you have selected the appropriate options, click Create Link to generate a share link. You can copy and paste this URL, or click the Email tab to send it via email directly from Assemble.

When a Private Review Link is created, an additional feedback thread is added to the file within your Assemble project. Any feedback that is left on this Private Review Link by any viewer will be collected here. This allows you to keep all feedback from the link organized and separate from your Assemble collaborators. These comments will be visible to all collaborators on the project.
