The share link functionality was turned into an
enhanced reporting system
after a bunch of improvements was recently released.
Now it is easier to share ranking data in
read-only mode
with your clients or team, so below you can find a walkthrough of what is new to the permalinks.
Two types of user interactions
When enableling the permalink, one can select how the end users interact with the reports being shared with them, as follows:
  • View Only
    mode - user interaction with shared reports is restricted. The users can only change the update dates in the reports they were given access to.
  • Interactive
    mode - user interaction with shared reports is unrestricted. The users accessing the reports via the permalink can change the inputs (keywords, webiste & search engine) and the update dates for which the ranking data should be displayed. They will also can change the table preferences (add/remove filters/columns) and export the ranking data.
Email notifications
The share link feature can now be used aslo as a reporting & notification system. When the
Notify by email
option is enabled, a performance summary email will be sent to the recipient(s) according to the frequency selected.
UI/ UX enhancements
The permalink modal was packed with new options while the entire adding/edit permalink flow optimised.
Share link button added to all UI reports
The permalinks can now be enabled from 2 places:
  • same as before, from the
    Projects page
    by clicking on the
    Share with
    label under a project’s name.
  • from the
    UI reports
    (eg. Ranking > Keywords report). When enabling the permalink using one of the UI reports, the modal will automatically select the currently accessed UI report making it easier to share with end users only the data that is of the most interest to them.
