I use my YouSendIt online folders at work to collaborate with colleagues on a number of files – we share calendars, databases, instructional manuals, spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, and a multitude of other documents.

On weekends, I assist in teaching drawing and painting classes. Via our YouSendIt Folders, the instructors and I collaborate on several documents, including class schedules, syllabi, lecture outlines, and promotional material. We also have several documents that we like to share with our students, and we don’t want to ask each and every one of them to sign up for a YouSendIt account. What we do is set up a read-only YouSendIt folder for each class, so that all students have online access to course-related documents.
In this Feature Friday post, I’ll show you how to create a read-only online folder that you can share with anybody, so that you have a portal to store and modify large amounts of data that anyone with the URL has access to!
Creating a Read-Only Public Folder
I use folders this way to share documents with students, but I’m sure other users will find numerous instances where read-only folder can come in handy. It’s a really efficient way to distribute a group of documents, which you can edit and modify whenever you want. And, if you ever wish to change who has access to your folder, you can always modify your folder’s permission settings in the Folders section of your YouSendIt account.
I hope you’ve found this Feature Friday post useful. If you have any questions, or if you’d like to share ideas about how you may use this feature, please feel free to post your thoughts in this thread. Thanks!
