How to share a Zoho Show presentation online - User guide

Share a Presentation Internally or Externally

Share your presentation inside or outside of your organization with Zoho Show. Set access privileges to control who can edit or add new content, or secure shared files with passwords to restrict them to specific users. Zoho Show presentations are stored on the cloud, and can be accessed from anywhere. 
Sharing and collaborating on a presentation helps you in several situations: 
  1. When a collaborator or coworker wants to edit the same presentation without having to create or keep track of multiple versions
  2. When you need to review the changes made by the coworker or collaborator
  3. When you need to be able to view the earlier drafts of the presentation
  4. When you need to merge multiple presentations worked by different users.

Ways to Share a Presentation

Share your presentation as a link to either a larger audience or a specific collaborator by changing the file Visibility settings. 

There are four ways to share a presentation:
  • With individuals or groups only - Files are accessible only by those who are explicitly granted permission to view your presentation. Enter the email addresses of those individuals or group you wish to share the file with.

  • Within your organization -  Files can be accessed by anyone in your organization who has  the link for the presentation. This is helpful if you are working on a specific document as a team. 

  • Public on the web (password-protected) - Files are accessible by anyone (including non-Zoho users) with the link and the password set by the owner. You can also set an expiration date for the shared presentation to make it inaccessible after a specified time.
