Sharing SharePoint Files with the public and/or for Cvent use

This How To is written specifically for Extension staff, faculty and educators that need to share files with the public for webinars, meetings, classes and similar items. Penn State does not allow public access to a SharePoint site by default. To save you steps of creating your own SharePoint site and then requesting public access and then managing the site, Ag IT has created Team SharePoint sites for each of the Extension teams and have created a Public folder for you to use to store your files for the public to use. This How To provides instructions on how to share a link with those that need access.
