Are You Using ShareFile’s Desktop Widget?
When referring to the ShareFile service, most people initially think of the web application. However, ShareFile provides a set of power tools that allow you to interact with your ShareFile account outside of the traditional web browser. These tools streamline processes such as sending and receiving files, uploading and downloading files, and even synchronizing folder structures to your ShareFile account.
A popular power tool that you may be familiar with is the ShareFile Outlook Plug-in, however today I’d like to focus specifically on the Desktop Widget. Built on the Adobe Air platform, the ShareFile Desktop Widget is an efficient way to upload, download, and delete files from your account without ever launching a web browser. Here is a screen shot of the log-in screen:
The Desktop Widget also offers a drag and drop utility (my personal favorite), making it easy for you to upload files to your account. Rather than logging in through a web browser, you can simply open the Desktop Widget program and begin uploading and download right away. User management, account administrator, and folder permissions will still have to be maintained and edited through the traditional web-based application.
