Allow the Recipient to Upload Files For You (File-Drop)

This is a Feature of the Enterprise Version.


In case you dont want to send someone else a file, but rather have them provide files for you, you can use the FileDrop feature. This will create a share, where the recipient can upload files to. This can also be End-To-End Encrypted!

  • Open a new email, best already enter a subject
  • Select "Create Upload-Link"
  • Adjust the share settings:

    The Share Name corresponds to the folder that will be created on the Server. It is automatically generated by the subject of the e-mail

  • Click Done.


Note that the folder will automatically be added to your "Watched Folders" and you will get a notification if a new file is uploaded there!

  • No labels
