2. Click on Share or Copy Link

This depends on what you want the person clicking on the link to achieve.
Anyone with the link – a public link that anyone can open.
People in Alpha Academies Trust – All users in each Academy.
People with existing access – if the file has been shared before, it will use existing permissions.
Specific people – you would enter the email addresses of the people you want to give access.
Checked : Enables people to view/edit file or view/upload to folder
Unchecked : people can only view the file/folder.
Set expiration date – it will disable the link after the set date.
Set Password – it will ask the user for the password set (you would share this separately)
So for Example, if I wanted to share a file with someone with view only access, I would select Anyone with the link and uncheck Allow editing
