Notice to Users:
This Echo360 online help site (help.echo360.org) is being replaced.
Feel free to begin using the new online resource center at support.echo360.com.
Please redirect any help links you may have configured to point to the resource center. This existing help site will be taken down at the end of January 2018.
Some institutions do not want to allow users to share publicly available links to video content. The Disable public links toggle allows administrators to turn off the ability copy and subsequently share public URLs that link content in Echo360.
The Public Links toggles can be configured to allow Admins, Instructors, and/or Students to generate public links to content. For Instructors and Students this only applies to content they own (located in their Library page). If enabled, Admins can create and manage public links to any captures visible in the Captures page.
To disable public links to Echo360 content
The users for whom public links are enabled will see a Public Links area on the Sharing tab of the content details page for video media.
IMPORTANT: As stated above, when this feature is disabled, any existing public links will no longer work; users clicking a posted public link returns an error, as disabling this feature deactivates the association between the public link and the media or section.
