Let us explore the different ways to upload documents and files in Sam9000 to make them available to the team. Once uploaded, the files will be accessible from anywhere you have an online access.Later in this article, we will explore how to generate a link for a third party (guest) to download the files. This is similar to sharing a file with other cloud file systems.
Upload a file in a Project
To help you getting started easily Sam9000 comes with a pre-configured Folder with a Getting Started Project where to upload your first file.
Once you have successfully logged in, click on the Dash top menu. You will get in the Dashboard perspective in the My Tasks Today list.
To add files you need to first access demo (or your own) project. Click on the Project shortcut button in the task window to access it.
Alternatively, you can click on Projects in the Top Menu bar, to see all projects, and then click on Project to access it.
Once in the Project,
Select the Files function in the left Menu drawer.
This will get you to the list of files for the current Project.
Then select Uploaded Files and click on Upload new File
Drag and drop files inside the Green rectangle or Click on the + button to Browse and select the files to add.
Your files are now safely on the cloud and accessible by everyone in the team from any device.
How to generate links for a third party to download your files
In your Project Select to Files in the side menu.
To generate a link, Click on Shared File.
Once you click on "Shared File", Sam generates a public link anyone can access. This link has an expiration date, after which it will no longer work. You can easily change this expiration date though. Copy the link with you mouse or click on Copy Link button to get it in your clipboard. Then paste it in an email, message, sms etc.
