  4. Set link sharing to the second option, "On - Anyone with this link" 
  5. Set "Access: Anyone (no sign-in required) to "Can View" from the drop-down
  6. Click "Save"

This means that any individual that you provide the shareable link to will be able to view the cleaning instructions you have provided.

  1. From the Share Settings on the PDF, copy the "Link to Share" field using Ctrl+C or Cmmd+C
  2. Log back into the Swept Web App
  3. Select "Locations" from the left hand menu.
  4. On the line of the location you want to add the cleaning instructions to click on the clipboard icon to go to "Cleaning Instruction".
  5. Click "Edit Instructions" to add/edit your cleaning instructions.
  6. Type "View Cleaning Instructions Here"
  7. Highlight that text and click the hyperlink 🔗 button in the top horizontal menu.
  8. Paste (Ctrl+V or Cmmd+V) the link that you had copied from the previous step by "URL" and click "Ok"
