The tour links are active before the tour has been published.

When I clicked on my branded and unbranded tour links, they are opening up the tour. The tour has not been published yet.

This is by design. PRODUCED tours can be viewed (and images downloaded). PUBLISHED tours get the link distributed to the public.

A PRODUCED tour can only be found if you know the ID of the tour, so yes, it can be seen on the internet, but it is not distributed to MLS, etc. until PUBLISHED.ffff
