Emailing a direct link to a file - (2 posts)

    Hey, everyone.

    I want to be able to email a link to a specific file on my server. So, if I use Fetch to upload a file named APPLE to, I would like to be able to email someone the link MYSITE/APPLE and they would be able to download the file.

    Help would be awesome. Thanks!

    The WebView feature, available in Fetch 5.2 and later, can help you do this.

    WebView lets you set up a correspondence between files you see listed in Fetch and their address on a website, so that you can copy the web addresses of those files while in Fetch. It requires a little configuration - you must tell Fetch the web address of your server, because in most cases, Fetch cannot figure out your web server's address automatically (because it's different for each server).

    For more information and setup instructions, please see the setting up WebView topic in Fetch Help (or just click the link here).

    Please let us know if you have further questions.
