AttachLink Drop allows users to create a Drop Folder to which authorized users may upload files. To authorize users, the owner of the Drop Folder simply sends them a link. FileWay will then generate a temporary User ID and password for each recipient and email that information separately.
The recipient will get an email titled: Temporary Login ID for: fileway link along with information about how to access the file or dropbox. To access the files or the drop folder, the recipient will click the link, login with the temporary User ID and password.
