File Sharing Overview

Sharing Files is Easy with FileAssist!

Your FileAssist account eliminates the need for cumbersome email attachments, file size limits, and even expensive office equipment. How? By harnessing the power of the cloud. You can share files, folders, pictures, and fax from your computer or your favorite mobile device using these features.



FileShare allows you to share files with anyone, even if the recipient isn't a FileAssist user. Select the file(s) you would like to send, choose the FileShare button, and enter your recipients' email address(es). A FileShare link is generated that can then be emailed or copied/pasted to your desired location. Recipients just click the link to download the files you shared. FileShare also comes with enhanced features, such as permissions, tracking, and history, giving you the ability to control your data.

The sender clicks the link, adds the file(s), and sends them straight to your account. Filereceive Links also come with advanced elements, such as individually designated folders, password protection, and link tracking, giving you the ability to manage incoming information.

GroupShare is a powerful tool that allows you to share folders and collaborate with other FileAssist users. Available on Web Basic, Web Advanced, WorkGroup, and Corporate accounts, simply select the folder you wish to share and click the GroupShare button. A prompt allows you to add users and individually assign permissions so that you can regulate the way data is shared. You may also change these settings at anytime to allow more or less access to shared folders.

All that's required is the selection of files and the recipient's FileAssist username. The selected files are copied to the recipient's Inbox and an email notification lets them know that new files have arrived. Esend delivery is instant and supports any file size (as long it does not exceed the recipient's maximum storage available. Note: Files may only be transferred to accounts of the same type, e.g. free to free or personal paid to personal paid.
