We're taking sharing to a whole new level!
In addition to our tried and true links sharing (aka "Links") that allows you to send files to a friend for quick and easy download, we've launched a new way for you to share information with friends, colleagues, or business partners in a more collaborative way called Folder Sharing.
It is a very simple and fast way to fully share the contents of a folder - both you and the people you share with will be able to access the files, add to it, and make edits, and all the updates will be available to all the people sharing as soon as you save changes. It's a pretty neat tool for collaborating or just seamlessly delivering files to others with ElephantDrive accounts. If someone does not have an ElephantDrive account, no worries; we've designed a quick 2-step process for them to get a Free ElephantDrive account. And it's available right now for you to test it out!
There are two ways you can take advantage of Folder Sharing.
- You can share folders from version 5.1.0 of the ElephantDrive Desktop Client. Just click on any folder from the ElephantDrive client, then click Share.
- Or you can share folders online from the beta version of the online web interface (it has a great new look and feel that we think you'll enjoy). Click on a folder that you would like to share, then click Share.
You can find our step-by-step How-To-Share-Folder guide.
