Best way to send a pdf map to a group quickly?

I'm trying to workout the best way to get a newly created PDF to a group of people. I can always download the map, then send as an attachment, but if my Caltopo account keeps a pdf for 7 days, is there a URL to the PDF I can text to others?

What do others do? Especially considering some in the group are not very tech savvy.

Any advice appreciated.

    Yes, each PDF gets an ID, similar to maps - In Chrome the PDF should open as a new tab with the URL readily visible; I believe Firefox downloads the PDF instead, but you can determine the ID from the filename.

    As a last resort, if you load a new map viewer after generating the PDF, click on your account name at the top left and then the "Your PDFs" tab to get a list of PDFs with links to each PDF.

    Perfect! That's obvious now that you point it out. Thanks.
