My name is Preston Kiser and I am a Software Test Engineer here at ShareFile. Since starting with the company in 2010 I’ve had the pleasure to see a number of new releases and changes to our system, and I would like to take some time to discuss one of my personal favorites – ShareFile Sync.
Today marks the two year anniversary of the debut of Desktop Sync. The release of Sync allowed users to quickly and easily integrate ShareFile into their daily workflow. We found that Sync was able to fulfill a variety of needs – allowing accountants to seamlessly upload tax documents to their client folders and ensuring that sales reps in the field always have the most up-to-date figures. The best part of all – it’s fully automated!
If you’re like thousands of people out there, you’re stuck in a rut of keeping your important files right on your desktop. I get it; you have easy access to them quickly. You know exactly where they are. You can even password protect them so no one accidently gets access to it from your computer if you leave it unlocked. But what if something were to happen to your computer… and you lost your important documents? That document that you’ve been working on for hours just disappeared. Sometimes there are chances to recover such documents in the event of a loss. However, if your hard drive crashed and your documents weren’t backed up you could be out of luck. Why worry when you don’t have to?
Today marks one year since we first launched our Sync Power Tool. If you are a fan of the ShareFile Facebook page you may have seen the picture of our Sync celebration last year.
Since the launch of Sync, we have seen a high adoption rate among users. In case you aren’t familiar with Sync, it allows you to synchronize folders within your ShareFile account with folders on your computer for easy, automatic updates and backup of your data. Users of the Sync tool can choose a ShareFile folder or a local folder to be the source, allowing you to easily mirror a folder in either location. Users also have the ability to set up a two-way sync job so that updates to either folder will be automatically recognized and adopted by the other. This allows users to work from the most up-to-date document at all times.
Tax season is right around the corner and we want to make sure your ShareFile account is as seamlessly integrated into your workflow as possible. There is no time to waste, so please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have to get your tax season off to a good start. In addition to some of the features that made us an Inc 500 company, as well as a Sleeter Group Awesome Add-on winner, we have introduced a few new features specific to the accounting industry.

We love developing new tools that improve your customer experience and make your workflow easier to manage. After listening to our customers and leaning what they needed in a file sharing tool, ShareFile has officially launched our latest Power Tool, ShareFile Sync!
The ShareFile Sync Power Tool is an automatic synchronization tool allowing you to manage your files and folders directly from your desktop and is a more user-friendly version of our SFCLI tool. ShareFile Sync offers a two-way synchronization option for users to sync files within specific folders for upload and download within the account. The new tool even allows for a one-way synchronization where businesses can protect certain files by designating them to be “upload only” from the user’s desktop into their account.
