Share Portfolio via Secure URL
The Sharing feature enables you to create a secure URL that links to your portfolio. This is helpful if the person that you would like to share your portfolio with does not have a Chalk & Wire account. It is important to note that you should NOT copy the URL directly from your browser window to share your portfolio. This is an unsafe practice, as it will temporarily grant the URL recipient access to your account.
Step 1: Access My Coursework
1. Click on the Main Menu icon.
2. Select My Coursework.
Step 2: Access the Portfolio
Locate the portfolio that you would like to share.
Click anywhere on the portfolio's row to reveal its options. Select Edit Portfolio.
Step 3: Select the Portfolio Page
If you would only like to share a specific page, or page and its subpages of your portfolio, click on the page name before beginning.
If you would like to share your entire portfolio, click on the Share this Page button.
Step 4: Create a Secure Share URL
1. The Share URL field will be filled with the secure, direct URL once you have generated the URL.
2. Select which sections of your portfolio you would like to share.
3. Select whether or not to Allow Commenting.
4. Optionally select Security Settings, such as a password required for viewing, and an expiration date for the URL.
5. Click on the Generate Share URL button to create the secure Share URL with your selected settings.
6. View previous shares by clicking on them.
Step 6: Distribute Secure Share URL
After generating the URL, sharing options will appear at the bottom of the Sharing section. Use the options provided to share the URL via email, Twitter, Facebook, and/or LinkedIn. Alternatively, you can copy the URL, by highlighting it in the Share URL text box, and paste it in an email, on a webpage, etc.
NOTE: The "Send Email" option will only work if you have your email address set up with Outlook, Mac Mail, or the equivalent.
Something to Consider
By copying and pasting the Secure URL into a new browser window, you are able to see how your shared portfolio will appear to others.
If you are unhappy with the way that your shared portfolio looks, you may change the theme in your Portfolio Setup. If you do not know how to access portfolio settings, please visit our Portfolio Setup help page.
