Simply right-click on any file, and go to the new Copy Link command.

This will copy a hyperlink to the file’s location to your clipboard.

This link can then be pasted into any document, such as a spreadsheet, or can be sent to another user by email.  For that user to then access the file, they will need to have (1) a vault view created on their computer and (2) “Read File Contents” permissions for both the folder and state that the file is currently in.
