Distribution

Become Distributor

The Distribution function allows users with a Distributor account to provide regular users with data. The difference between this and the standard Sharing process is that a full copy of a file is created, and all rights are passed to the user who receives this file.

The file distribution function is available only to accounts with a distributor role. There are two ways to assign this user role:

1) Select the distribute function in the context menu. Upon selection you will see a window with the text, “You need to upgrade to Distributor account to continue.” By clicking the ‘Upgrade’ button, you will be redirected to the ‘Contact us’ form.

2) By pressing ‘Upgrade’ at the bottom of the page, you will be directed to a page showing membership plans. At the bottom of this page, click on ‘Become Distributor’ to go to the ‘Contact us’ form.

Here you can leave a request to become a distributor. You will then receive all necessary documents and an invoice by email. Upon paying the invoice, your account will be upgraded to a ‘Distributor account.’

Distribution profile

When first using the distribution function, a user with a Distributor account can set up a company logo and a name that will be displayed to all their clients.

A Distribution profile can be edited by selecting the edit action in the ‘Distribution profile’ menu.

Distribute

The Distribution function allows users with a Distributor account to provide regular users with data.  The difference between this and the standard Sharing process is that a full copy of a file is created, and all rights are passed to the user who receives this file.

A user with a Distributor account can use the ‘Distribute’ option from the context menu for any object (files and folders). Upon selecting this function, the distributor will see a modal window with the text, “Please enter the customer’s e-mail address to complete the Distribution,” and the required ‘Email’ field. It is necessary to specify a particular user by entering an e-mail address in the field and pressing the enter key. The user’s address is automatically converted to a tag and the cursor shifts, allowing you to enter the next e-mail address. Upon clicking the ‘Distribute’ button, the system sends an email informing the specified user that the file from the given company or user is available to them. When a user logs in to their account, they will see the objects in the ‘Purchased’ section.
