Which features have been worked on/added to Lytho since the latest release?
Naming your shared links
Users with sufficient rights can share several things from Lytho like publications, brand guides, assets, and requests for uploading assets. To help our users manage all created share links more easily we have added a name field to the 'create share link' modal. When creating a share link, users can give the link a short name as a note to themselves. This name won't be displayed on the share page when following the link, but it will only be displayed in the shared links overview within Lytho.
Email address is required when downloading shared assets
A shared link with downloadable assets is basically accessible for anyone that gets a hand on that link. Sharing assets that allow downloading can now be better-tracked thanks to the mandatory email field. Before allowing recipients of a share link to download the assets from the share page, they are obliged to fill in their email address which will be saved within Lytho. Soon, we will work on showing these email addresses in the shared links details so you can actually see who has downloaded your shared assets.
