Do you have work files you need to share with other Elon faculty or staff? The process is incredibly easy when using Syncplicity's web access.

Sharing a file

1.) Right-click the file or folder you wish to share and click 'share link'

2.) If you wish to apply protection, select the protection you require, set an expiration date for the link, and click 'Generate Link'

3.) Now, choose to email the link or copy the link to paste somewhere else

If you copy the link, it will be added to your clipboard. Set your cursor into the location where you wish to paste the link, and press CTRL+V to paste the link into the selected location.

4.) If you email the link, enter any email addresses you want to receive the link (Syncplicity will even search your address book for contacts!)

5.) If you wish to fill out a message, do so, and click 'Send'
