This blog explains how you can use your HCP Trial Instance with SAP Mobile Documents enabled for easy file sharing.

Prerequisite

HCP Trial Account with activated Mobile Documents Service

Once you have set up your personal HCP Mobile Documents Trial, you can upload files into your My Documents area using drag&drop.

Now you would like to share them with others.

This is how you do it:

Enable Sharing

To use the ready-to-use file sharing capabilities of SAP Mobile Documents, you need to enable sharing in the Admin UI:

In the HANA Cloud Cockpit – Services –  Mobile Documents area

Go to Service Configuration –> Configure Mobile Documents

Enter a name for the share.

Select the option Anyone with the link has access.

You can set an expiration date or password protection. Enable the option Write Permission if you want the recipient to also be able to upload or delete files.


Do not select the option Share with Membersi for now. This is described in the blog Collaborate with colleagues.
