Many professionals need a secure way to receive files from their clients, patients, students, customers, associates and the like. MYDOCSONLINE just released an optional password-protected Customer Upload feature. Each account now has a checkbox “Require Password” in the Group Administration–>Group Settings–> Customer Upload plus a field to enter the password. Refer to our screen display below.
The password is visible to make it easier to recall. The password of course must be provided to anyone doing an upload. It is up to the Administrator to communicate the password verbally or secure method to individuals that are uploading files.
If the “Required Password” option is selected then the link changes from cuploadcustom.aspx to cuploadpw.asx. Though, if the regular link is used with the “Require Password” turned ON then the link gets redirected to the password protected link. As a result, there is no need to change the regular link as posted on web pages or sent in emails.
Our public UPLOAD feature is referred to as “Customer Upload” and is enabled for all accounts at start up. Should you not want to use this feature you may simply disable the feature. The Customer Upload feature permits any file type and any file size to be transferred securely into your account by individual from any computer, laptop, iPad or mobile device. You now can turn ON the new password feature to prevent unwanted files from being uploaded into your account should you make your Upload page visible on a website or public document.
