This is an in depth look at the new SendThisFile Enhanced Upload Page. This is the newest way for you to send files with your SendThisFile account, as it has additional features that are not found on the Classic Personal File Sending Page. Most notably you have the ability to send files, in your internet browser, that are larger than 2 gigabytes & you have the ability to pause and resume uploads – both are requests that we have received from our customers for quite some time. In this article we will go over how to get to and use the Enhanced Upload page, as well as go over a few features that it has.
To access the Enhanced Upload page, log into your account by going to the SendThisFile homepage and click on the ‘User Sign-in’ link in the upper right hand corner of the screen. That will take you to your account home page. Next click on ‘Send Files’ on the menu bar.
This is the Classic Personal Sending Page.� It has all the functions and features that you have been used to when sending files via your SendThisFile account. In order to navigate to the Enhanced Personal Sending Page click on “Change To Enhanced View” on the right side of the page.
This is Enhanced Personal Sending Page! Here you can fill out the ‘To’, ‘From’, ‘BCC’, ‘Subject’, & ‘Message’ fields just as you have before using the Classic version. Below that you have the option to request a notification when a file is downloaded or not & request to be notified if a file’s status changes.
The next section allows you to set a download password. If you chose to add this layer of security you will need to communicate the password to you recipient via another means (phone call, another email, text message). SendThisFile will not communicate the password to any individual. You can also set the maximum number of times a file can be downloaded from your recipients. After your choices are made, click ‘Select Files’
The next screen is where you will be adding your files! Here you can either click on the green ‘Add’ button or you can even drag files from another window or desktop in to the box. You are also able to drag and drop entire folders in to the window and the Enhanced page will automatically zip (compress) the folder for you! After you have made your selection, simply click on the green arrow at the bottom of the page.
After you click the green arrow you will see the progress meter pop up and go from 0 to 100%
As soon as it has completed you will see a confirmation page that will tell you your files were sent successfully
You can click the green ‘Continue’ button and send more files or navigate to other parts of your SendThisFile account.
