People you shared the file with will receive an email with the download link for the file.

If you created multiple files in one go, they will receive one email with a separate download link for each file.


In this section you can share the file with contacts, groups and partners.

You can choose to notify people that a file has been shared with them, or choose to have no notification email sent (the default selection is for an email to be sent). If you do choose to notify people, you can also add a subject and message which will be shown in the email received by the recipient(s) of the file.

Also see Sharing files.


In this section you can:

  • Select a folder to add the file to
  • Create a new folder to add the file to
