Certain security features require those receiving links to be workspace users. In these cases, it does not always make sense to assign the users to a project. Use the "No Projects" option to create viewer users without access to your Shift projects.

"No Project" Users

Administrators have the ability to assign users to "No Projects," so the users can receive private links to confidential files. This option is available for both the Manager and User types.

To start, go to the Administration section, and click the Add Users button. You will be taken to the Add Users window, where you can add the user's email address.

Select User from the Type dropdown menu. Then, assign the user to "No Projects" in the projects dropdown menu.

Sharing Files from a Project

When you share an asset from a project, set the access type ("Who can view these files?") to Private. Then, in the section titled "People," enter the viewers with whom you wish to share the asset.

Sharing a Project as a Branded Presentation

To share a project, click the three dots in the top-right corner of the project tile, and then select Share > Presentation from the menu. This will share a branded, themed Spotlight presentation. If you have not previously created a template or presentation, click here to learn more.

You will be taken to the share window where you can add your audience and select a Spotlight template. To add your audience, select "Workspace users" under Access, and enter your viewers in the Recipients box.
