Buzzsaw Trial Public URL

I'm tring to test that I can send a download link (Public URL?) to someone who does not have a Buzzsaw account. Please could someone confirm is this possible?


So basically I'm making a file and folder (Public) user view permissions. Then I'm right clicking on a file to Copy Public URL.


But then when I open the link on anouther computer the link does not work.


Any ideas? I'm currently on a test site, looking at possible purchase in a few months.


Actually I just tried it again and it seems to be working.


Is there a method I can send a more secure URL? Just like you can with DropBox and Box?

Any ideas anyone.


I can't justify the cost of Buzzsaw if I also need to have a box account in order to transfer files ad-hoc to a non Buzzsaw user. Not all of our clients will be interested in creating an account just to download our files.


Please I'd really like to know if its possible.

You can make project folders or files available to non-members. To
announce to anyone (not just site or project members) that a specific folder
or file is available for viewing, use the Copy Public URL function. By copying
the public URL for a folder or file and pasting it into an email message, you
allow anyone you choose to see project data that has been designated as
publicly accessible. People viewing this data need not provide a username or
password. The permissions to the file or folder is read-only.'Buzzsaw+public+URL
