Follow these instructions to give read-only access to a file for someone outside of the University (that is, they do not have a NetID).
ownCloud should not be used to store or share files that contain sensitive or protected information. This includes FERPA, medical or credit card information.
The University IT department strongly recommends password protecting any file you share outside the University.
If you choose to use the "Email link to person" service after password protecting the file, please note that the automated email does not contain the password. You will need to notify the recipient of the password separately.
Information on making the share available for a limited amount of time can be found in the Expiration Date instructions.
