Public URL

Modified on Wed, 20 Sep 2023 at 10:46 AM

In Portflow, it is possible to generate a public URL for a snapshot of the portfolio. A public URL allows someone outside the LMS (Canvas or Brightspace) to view the locked copy of a Portfolio. This URL allows the portfolio to be submitted in assignments in other applications.

If you want to submit your portfolio in your LMS, you don't need to create a public URL. Read the article about submitting Brightspace or Canvas assignments to learn more about submitting your portfolio there.

Two types of public URLs

There are two types of links: an assessment link or a showcase link. Find out what the differences are in the table below.

Generating an URL

  1. Make sure you created a locked copy of the portfolio 
  2. Go to the 'my archive' page
  3. Click on the three dots (⋮next to the locked version you would like to share. 
  4. Click on 'generate shareable link'
  5. Click on 'showcase portfoliolink' or 'assessment link'
  6. Copy the URL (and password) of the portfolio to easily share this with assessors/others
  7. Click on 'OK'

As soon as the URL is generated, the icon turns blue. By clicking on the icon, the URL (and password) can be retrieved.
