Easier File Sharing through the Widget
We are excited to announce that the newest version of the Desktop Widget contains several new features and enhancements to make it a more powerful tool to help you send and receive files without ever having to open a web browser. Here are some of the highlights of this update:
Request a File – The Widget now includes a ‘Request’ option to send upload links from your File Box or folders.
Sending files – Right clicking on a file or folder in the Widget screen will give a ‘Send’ option, so that you can send a link to download files stored on your account. There are also options allowing you to email links directly from the Widget or to get a link that can be copied and sent through your own email program.
Autocomplete for email addresses – When you begin to enter a recipient’s email address while sending or requesting files, the Widget checks your ShareFile address books for contacts starting with the same characters so that you can just click on a contact to complete their address.
Faster loading for large folders – Large folders load more efficiently in the Widget screen to make it quicker and easier to browse through your files.
Open in ShareFile’ – A new ‘Open in ShareFile’ link opens the screen that you are currently looking at in the Widget in your ShareFile account online for fast access to more advanced editing, copying, or moving of files or folders.
The Desktop Widget is available to all ShareFile employee and client users. If you want to install the Widget, please click here to download it.
