Within your agency console, you can upload files (proposals, specifications, designs, assets, test plans, prototype builds and more) and save links (Invision clickable prototypes, Trello boards Google Drive and Store listings etc) relating to a client or app project.
If you have enabled the client portal, you can automatically notify your clients when a new file has been uploaded or link has been shared with them. They can collaborate with you by uploading logos and brand guidelines etc.
This provides a convenient way for your team and your client to store, locate and access all of the resources relating to an app project.
Accessing shared files¶
Files and links can be stored against a client (for example: SLAs) and an individual app.
Client files and links¶
To access files and links stored against a client, from your agency console, click on that client and then from the client dashboard for that client, click on
Files. Your client can access files and links in the same way from their client portal.
App files and links¶
To access files and links stored against an app, click on that app and then from the app dashboard for that app, click on
Files. Again, your client can access these files and links in the same way from their client portal.
Adding a file or link¶
To upload a file or share a link, click on the primary upload action button. A new dialog will now open. Don't forget to click
Save once you have entered all of the required information.
Give the file or link an appropriate, descriptive title, meaningful to both your team and your client.
Files and links are grouped into categories. When uploading a file or sharing a link, you can select in which category the file or link should reside. You can select (or type-ahead and choose) one of the pre-defined categories or type in a new category if required. Note that only those categories that actually have files or links in them, will be shown in the Files tab.
You can optionally give your file or link a version number. This allows you to upload multiple versions of the same file. However, note that this is for your own (and your client's) reference only - concurrent sequencing is not enforced.

When you click
Save, an email will then be sent to the client with your message and a link to the document in their client portal, that they can then click on to access the file or link.
Soon, you'll receive a notification when the client downloads the file or views the link!
Viewing a file or link¶
