Saving the Content of a Link

In SOFM you have the possibility to save into your online storage service the Content behind a Simple link on your Netsso desktop. This ensures that if the link is ever broken - for example when the owner of the content behind it decides to delete it from the web - its original content has been saved for you, if it is valuable to you. You can also save content direct from a webpage - the page, or part of it, an image for example or other links - into your online storage by using the (right-click/Tap) “Copy Link for Netsso” function (for which you must have the Netsso Login Pilot installed). Also, this function can work direct from the online storage folder itself, for any url address which you type in.

When you know the address whose content you want to save, or you have right-clicked the link in Netsso or on the webpage, go to the SOFM/Online store which you wish to use for saving and open a folder where you want to save the content. From a pull down menu or a right-click menu on the folder, choose “Save Link Content”. You will see a dialog where the url you wish to save is already typed in, or you can  type in a new address, and then click "Save".

If the address you wish to save refers to a html page, then Netsso also offers you the choice to save all the images on that page as well as text, or only save text plus references (links) to the images. If you choose “Text and Images” then the images themselves will be saved in the file. This will require more time and storage space. If content is not an html page then this option will be ignored. Then click button “Save”. This will instruct the Netsso server to download the content from the specified address and then upload it into your chosen online folder. You will later be notified when uploading is completed and you can tap on the bar above the folder window to see that the new content has arrived (or you can also confirm it via your Admin menu at the top of Netsso / Activity Logs).

This “Save Link Content” service works for those online file stores which are currently compatible with Netsso SOFM, i.e. Dropbox, GoogleDrive and OneDrive.
