#Content accessibility types
Sharing and collaboration are Figlinq's core tenets, but we understand that not everything can or should be openly accessible. There are, therefore, three accessibility states for all your Figlinq content (charts, data grids and figures/dashboards): public, private, and private link. The accessibility status of content is always visible, in all Figlinq areas. You can tell, for instance, whether content has a public status by the icon in the "My files" area.
Anyone can view and access a public chart, data grid, or figure. Public content will also appear in your public profile and in the Figlinq feed and search engines. You don't need to be logged in to access it.
When you save your content as 'Private', only you can access it, as long as you're logged into your account. It won't appear in the Figlinq feed, your profile, or our search engines. You can still grant access to private content, but your collaborators will only be able to access it when they are logged in. You can tell whether content has a private or private link status by the icon in "My files" area.
Saving content as 'Private link' will allow anyone with the secret link to access that content. Just like with private content, it will not appear in the Figlinq's public feed, your profile or search engines. When embedded into a webpage, however, the content will be accessible to anyone viewing that page, without them having to log into their Figlinq account. You can tell whether content has a private or private link status by the icon in "My files" area.
#Accessibility of content inside folders and subfolders
Changing a folder's accesibility status affects all contents within that folder, in the following ways:
- Changing a folder status from 'Private' to 'Public' changes the status of all its contents to 'Public'.
- Changing a folder status from 'Public' to 'Private' changes the status of all its contents to 'Private'.
- Moving private content to a public folder will make that content public for the time it's there.
- Public content moved to a private folder will remain public.
Important: When folder accessibility status is changed, the or icons of the files inside do not change! So a file inside of a public folder may still show icon, if it was set to private before the operation. This file will nevertheless be openly accessible.
#Changing content accesibility
- In 'My Files' area
- In Chart Editor
In the My Files area, the accessibility status can be chosen by hovering the mouse above the item, clicking the icon, and then clicking the 'Links & Privacy' tab. Additionally, to quickly flip the accessibility status between public and private, click the or icon.
In the Chart Editor area, the accessibility status can be chosen when saving the chart and data.
