Sharing assets

You can share assets with other users by emailing a link or download of the asset or sending it using Box or Dropbox.

Users with view permission can email an asset link to other users. Because the recipient needs to sign in to access the asset, they need to be a Acquia DAM user.

  1. Sign in to Acquia DAM, and then select one or more assets that you want to share.
  2. Click the Share icon Share in the actions toolbar of the asset details page and select Email link:

  5. Click Send.
