Why I can't create a public link for anyone


See image, how am I suppose to understand why I can’t pick the second option?
Beyond the bad UX, can someone help me understand?

Hi @Bastien_Siebman, thanks for your feedback. Let me share some information that hopefully will clarify the issue!

Super admins of Enterprise organizations can set access permission for read-only links for their entire domain. These are the two options they can select:

  • Restrict access only to email addresses associated with the organization’s domain
  • Allow project members to set read-only link sharing permissions

It seems this specific Organization has set that read-only links can only be shared with people in your company (members who has an email address associated with your Organization).

You can find more details on this article:

I hope this helps, let me know if you have more questions!

  • the project is public
  • I am a project admin
  • my org allows for “public sharing”

Am I missing something?

You probably already know, but because you need to create the link first.
Then you can change the access rights.
But indeed, not the best UI.


Whaaaaaaaat I had no idea. That’s really really bad design indeed… :man_facepalming:

Thanks Arthur, I still have a lot to learn from you :heart:


Ahaha not sure, but happy to help :kissing_heart:

Yeah, I’ve noticed this too. It’s quite confusing - the UX could definitely be improved on this.
