Hello. Once you have content in NetFiles, there are several ways you can share it. If you have a large file to share and you are unable to attach it via email, NetFiles is a good way to go. In this video I’ll show you how to use the Email feature, which allows you to share content with people outside the U, as well as with University users.
First, select the file you want to share; then click Email.
Enter the user’s email address in the To box.
In the pre-composed message, you are free to modify the text as long as you keep the table intact.
When you’re done editing the message, click Send located in the bottom right corner.
Notice, you’re not done sending the message.
This next screen tells you a ticket will be created. In NetFiles, a ticket is just a link. When you share a file using NetFiles email, you send a link to the file, not the file itself.
Under Ticket Options, you can see the ticket is good for 30 days by default. And, no password is required to use the ticket.
You can change these options as you see fit.
If you do create a password, it’s your job to let people know what the password is.
I’m going to leave the default options and click Send to finally create the ticket.
Now the email has been sent.
If you are wondering what the email looks like, here it is.
Here’s the text of the message and here’s the link to the file.
One word of caution: A ticket can be passed onto others. It’s just like passing out a key to your house. Anyone with a key can get in.
This is it for now. In the next video, I’ll show you more sharing options.
