Waybook offers a powerful feature that allows you to publicly embed documents, making it easier than ever to share valuable information with your audience. By enabling this feature, you can generate a shareable link to your Waybook document and effortlessly embed it into your websites or other online platforms.

How do Public Embed Documents work?

To get started with publicly embedding documents, follow these simple steps:

  1. First, ensure you are in edit mode and open the document that you would like to publicly share. Click on the "Settings" option within this document.

  2. Within the Settings menu, scroll down for the "Public Share" option. Toggle it on to activate the publicly shareable link for your document.

  3. Once you've turned on the public share option, a unique link will be generated for your document. This link is what you'll use to embed the document on external websites or other platforms.

  4. Copy the provided link, and then you can easily paste it into the desired location on your website's code or content management system. The document will now appear and be accessible to anyone visiting the site.

Important Information and Next Steps:

  1. Privacy Considerations: Before enabling the publicly shareable link, ensure that the content you're embedding is suitable for public viewing. Take a moment to review the document and make sure it doesn't contain sensitive or confidential information.

  2. Interactive and Dynamic: The embedded Waybook documents retain their interactive elements, ensuring a seamless and engaging experience for your website visitors. They can scroll, search, and interact with the document just as they would in the original Waybook interface.

  3. Share Knowledge Effectively: By embedding Waybook documents publicly, you can effortlessly share essential knowledge, manuals, guides, or company policies with clients, customers, employees, or partners.

  4. Updates in Real-time: Any updates made to the original Waybook document will automatically reflect on the embedded version, ensuring that your audience always has access to the latest information.

  5. Control Access: Although the document is publicly accessible, only users who can access the embed link can view it. This allows you to have control over who can access the information.

  6. Track Engagement: Gain insights into how your embedded documents perform with Waybook's analytics. You can monitor views and interactions to gauge the document's effectiveness.

Start sharing your knowledge effectively with Waybook's publicly embeddable documents! Make your website more informative and engaging by providing your audience with valuable content directly from your Waybook library.

Remember, Waybook is your partner in creating a knowledge-sharing ecosystem that fosters growth and success. Happy embedding!
