SESYNC researchers and staff can provide a link for external collaborators to
upload (donwload) files to (from) any research data directory they can access.
We recommend this mechanism for receiving datasets from external collaborators:
create a new folder and turn it into a public “file drop”, as described below.
Click the share icon () to the right of a file or folder to open its sharing status in
(Internal). To share with SESYNC users, type their full name in the search
box in the sidebar.
(External). To share with people not in the contacts list, check “Share
link” or enter an email address.
Choose the type of share:
to only receive files check “File drop (upload only)”
to share privately check “Password protect” and create a secure password
to share temporarilly check “Set expiration date” and choose when the
share will be terminated
If you selected “Share link”, you must send the link to each recipient. If
you selected “Password protect”, you must distribute the password to each
recipient. Use a secure means to share passwords, such as https://pwpush.com.
Email is not considered secure.
