  • the recipients;
  • the type of the page.

You can create an customizable page to protect and send files directly to many users. Files sent via this page will be encrypted with Seald technology before being uploaded.

  • select multiple recipient users;
  • customize the title, logo and description of the receiving page;
  • customize the URL suffix (example: send.seald.io/send/to-customize).

TIP

Note here that creating a customizable Seald FileDrop page will consume 1 license!

# Connect an upload page to a third party Cloud hosting service

By default, the upload pages transmit the protected files through links sent by email to the recipients of a page. It is also possible to connect the upload page to third party Cloud services (such as OneDrive, Exchange, Dropbox, GDrive).

The configuration of these parameters is done on the last upload page configuration screen.

# Connection with a service managed by the administrator

(This paragraph only concerns Dropbox and Gdrive connections, for other services, please contact support)

In case the administrator, having access to the dashboard, also has access to the service to which the page needs to be logged in, the administrator just has to click on "Login".

page-connect-a

A connection request with the desired service will then be proposed in order to connect the page to the service.

WARNING

It is currently not possible to connect multiple upload pages to the same Cloud hosting account. If you connect a second upload page to the same hosting account, the first one may be disconnected.

# Connection with a user-managed service

(This paragraph only concerns Dropbox and Gdrive connections, for other services, please contact support)

In case the administrator, having access to the dashboard, does not have access to the service to which the page should be connected, he can send a login request to a user having access to the service.

All the administrator has to do is click on "Invite someone else".

page-connect-ba

It will then be necessary to enter the email address of the user who has access to the service.

page-connect-ba

The user will receive by email a link leading to a connection request with the desired service will then be proposed in order to connect the page to the service.

WARNING

It is currently not possible to connect multiple upload pages to the same Cloud hosting account. If you connect a second upload page to the same hosting account, the first one may be disconnected.

# Customize the location and name of transmitted files

Once the page is connected to one or more hosting services, when a person transmits files via the page, the files will be automatically transferred to the default folder, and will have a name of the same name. following this format : {YYYYmmddHHMMSS}-{file_id}-{filename}. For example, if someone transfers the file fichier.pdf, the name of the uploaded file will be : 20200602183055-1-fichier.pdf.

This is not a "user friendly" file name and it is possible to set both the location of the file (for example to make a folder by email from a sender) and the name of the transmitted file. To do this, click on "Location" :

page-connect-ca

And then fill in the format of the filename to be transmitted.

page-connect-cb

To customize the folder and the name of the file to transmit, several parameters are available:

Nom de la variable Fonction
%UPLOADPAGE_LABEL Label of the page
%UPLOADPAGE_FRIENDLYNAME Customized URL of the page
%UPLOADPAGE_NAME Name of the page
%UPLOADPAGE_UUID UUID of the page
%UPLOAD_ID ID of the upload
%UPLOADER_NAME Name of the uploader
%UPLOADER_EMAIL Email of the uploader
%FILE_I ID of the file
%FILE_NAME Filename
%FILE_DEFAULT Filename and timestamp
%Y Year
%m Month
%d Day
%H Hour
%M Minute
%S Second

WARNING

If you don't use a variable, all files will go in the same folder, and have the same name. In most cases, this will render the page unusable.

Whether using variables or not, if the name and location of a file to be transmitted are the same as an existing file, the existing file will be replaced.

For example, if you want to make one folder per year, containing one folder per transmitter, with its files in it, you can use the following configuration: %Y/%UPLOADER_NAME/%FILE_NAME. So, if the user Alice transmits the file file.pdf, the file will be transferred to the 2020/Alice/ folder and the file will have the name file.pdf.
