Mobile sharing on Android and iOS

In early 2016, we asked what features you would love to see us add to Livedrive. We received many responses and after lots of phone calls with customers, we came up with a long list.

Now we are excited to announce the first of many great updates – Mobile sharing – and it’s available today!

If you have an account with a Briefcase folder (Briefcase/Pro Suite) and have an Android or iOS device you can now share files from the Livedrive app.

 

Download the app now

If you have the app installed, it should already have updated. If you haven’t installed the app yet, click below:

In the past the Livedrive apps enabled you to share a file with another app, this would download the whole file from your Livedrive account to your phone so you could edit, view or send it in using another app. If you wanted to share the file with someone else, you would have to make sure it was small enough to share via email/Whatsapp etc.

We have now added the option to share public links, just like you can on the online portal or desktop software. This will enable you to send family or friends links to your files on Livedrive, removing problems with file attachment limits.

 

How to share on Android

To share a file, please open the app and follow these instructions:

Find the file/folder you want to share in your Briefcase. Next long press on the file/folder and the following menu will be displayed:

1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next tap the “share public link” option from the menu and the dialogue box below will be displayed.

2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Selecting “Share link” will now make that file/folder publicly available through Livedrive. A list of options will be displayed, asking you how you want to share that link. Email, SMS, and other compatible apps will be displayed.

Please note: Only the files you publicly share will be available to other people. You can also revoke access to a shared file at any time by simply going to back to the file and selecting “share public link” again.
