Release Selected Files to Users
Releases are used to send versions of files or folders privately to users who are part of a project.  If a user is not allowed access for a particular project but we want to allow the user access a particular version of the file in that project, then this feature is very useful.


Creating a Release:

  • To create a release, Go to Data page select a file and click the Releases tab on the bottom left.

  • Click button to create a release and a dialog for creating release will come up when clicked.
  • Enter the Release name, select a Due Date (default date is release creation date), enter the user information with whom you want to share it with and enter any notes if needed. User information is auto-suggestive based on the name of user and you can also assign it to a group. Click "Submit" to save and send the release.
