Create a secret URL
What is a Secret URL and how does it work?
The Secret URL feature can be used to generate a web link to share your page (or collection) with specific people who haven't got access to studentfolio outside of the University, (e.g. a prospective employer,) without having to make your page or collection publicly available on the Internet.
You can let people have access to your page by sending them the Secret URL link that is generated.
Using the Secret URL means your page or collections can't be found by search engines (e.g. Google) if someone does an Internet search. But if someone has the link they can view the page via the web.
You can produce multiple Secret URL's for the same page or collection to give out to different people, set a time limit for access and / or then delete them when you want to remove access.
To generate a Secret URL:
1. Go to Portfolio > Shared by me.
2. Click on the 'Edit Secret URL access' button next to the page or collection you want.
a. Click the New Secret URL button button to generate the Secret URL.
b. The Secret URL is shown and can be copied and pasted using the Copy Button.
c. Click the Edit button to set a date and time restriction on the URL you have generated
d. Click the Delete button to remove access to the URL completely.
You can generate as many secret URL's as you want for a page or collection, and send them to different people. Just click the New Secret URL button to generate another secret URL.
