Overview: Accessing and Using the FileShare™ Log
Your FileAssist account gives you the ability to share an almost endless number of files. That's a lot to keep up with! Luckily, we thought of that and provided a FileShare History log that neatly sorts all your active FileShare links. In addition, the log allows you to edit, view, generate, and check link history all from a single screen.
