4.6 Publishing a File
The ability to publish a file to the web is available depending on the license you have. Right-click on the file you would like to publish and select “Publish Version” from the context menu (this action can also be carried out through the “Edit” menu on the menu bar). A new window will open displaying the generated URL.
By selecting “Publish” the file will be uploaded to the server in an unencrypted form. This function cannot be used with WebDAV servers. The URL can also be dispatched via email. To ‘unpublish’ a file, first navigate to the desired file in TeamDrive. Looking in the version tree, find the version of the file that has been published, right-click on the file and select “unpublish”. Published files can be quickly found using the search filters. You can find more info on search filters in section 4.1.
If it's an editable file than the file can, of course, be edited if someone downloads it from the link you provide and edits it. The edits, however, will not be synced back to the original file. If you do not want anyone to have the ability to change the file at all, you should lock the file with the program you are using so and make it read-only. Then you can publish this version of the file with the locked/read-only attributes.
