Result

The published file is saved to the Edge Drive under the root folder that you defined. Edge Drive saves the files in the following structure:

  • All documents are saved under kapost_files/root_folder_name/documents folder.
  • All attachments are saved under kapost_files/root_folder_name/attachments folder.

If the root folder is shared, the plug-in creates a permanent link for each published file. Depending on the type of share you create for the root folder, the Kapost user can share this link to other users.
