We’re pleased to announce a new feature to support anonymous uploads by nonusers through a pre-configured and expiring dropzone. A dropzone allows a nonuser to upload files to a specific folder anonymously. Dropzones are accessed through randomized expiring links that permit the recipient to upload files without any FolderGrid user account or credentials.
To create a Dropzone in our default web client, right-click on the target folder and select “Share Publicly.” Select the number of hours the dropzone should be active before expiring and you will receive a randomized URL that is very difficult (but not impossible) to guess. Distribute this URL to those persons who you wish to have the ability to upload files to the target folder anonymously.
Several users have requested this ability to permit nonusers to upload files to designated folders on their FolderGrid - we hope you’ll find it useful as well and as always welcome any feedback!
