'Via Link' is the most secure way of distributing your documents. With the 'Via Link' option you have full control of the following:
- Allowing recipients to download documents
- Allowing recipients to print documents
- Setting link expiration dates
- Monitoring of link accessibility on a per-user basis
- The ability to nullify the link should the document be compromised
'Via Email Attachment' is less secure and operates as a standard email attachment. The file size for an email attachment is limited to 10MB. With this option, you no longer have control of shareability once it's distributed.
'Printable PDF' distributes hard copies to a folder within your Prodicle Google Drive. Files and recipients you have selected are combined into one printable pdf.
