I have a library of media assets on SharePoint. When I engage with clients, I create a folder to share with them, and add needed assets to that folder. Rather than duplicate the files repeatedly throughout my document library, I'd like to create the equivalent of a shortcut/alias. A sort of shared playlist, so that I don't have dozens of copies of a single file in my document library.
I know I can force a download of a file by changing the URL to include web=0. But when I share that link externally, the .url is accessible in the folder, but the linked file is not. Because of my org settings, I cannot make the original files available to "anyone with the link." If I have to share it from the original asset library, that defeats the purpose of the shared folder and would give the client numerous links to open instead of one shared space.
Any thoughts on how to create a list of links for a client in a single space on SharePoint Online? Thanks for any help!
