CloudFiles provides secure file sharing with powerful automations for your files. Additionally it provides security and expiry settings for your links, so that your teams can maintain control over your files. In this article we will discuss the file subscription feature by CloudFiles.
File Subscription feature
CloudFiles provides two means for sharing files:
- Importing files into CloudFiles content library and sharing.
- Mirror Drive Sync, to share files directly from your Google Drive, One Drive, SharePoint, DropBox or Box.
When you replace files that have been imported into CloudFiles content library, the file subscription feature can notify your file viewers that the file has been updated. They get a notification, with an email from CloudFiles.
The mirror drive feature by CloudFiles shows the latest version of your files from your Cloud based drives. Hence, when you update your google docs, slides, or any other live document, it gets updated in your CloudFiles links. The file subscription feature will update your file viewers whenever there is a change in the original live document.
