How to share again a file ?

Added by Vincent Boisseau about 8 years ago

Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to share a file again with other recipient ?

In my company user A shared a file with user B, and this user B wanted to share with user C.
The user B forwarded the mail to user C, but it was not possible for user C to download the file because he did't use the same id.

Does someone have an idea or it's a new feature to ask ?

Thanks a lot

Hi Vincent,

If you mean "is it possible with the Thunderbird plugin with the "forward" action", it is not, except if A shares files with someone without a LinShare account, because this person receive a direct link to the file and not the normal notification.

In the LinShare interface, B have to "accept" the A share by copying it to his space, then B can share it to somebody else.

Another solution to share many files between many people when it's always the same people is to create a group and share the files with the group.

In fact, you're proposing a new feature which I already would like to add in LinShare, but the actual implementation may make it impossible. It needs more work to size up this situation.

Best regards,

Hi Stéfanie,

Thanks for your prompt reply !!

I didn't see the "copy" button !!! It's exactly that we need !!
But it's not very usefull for the users because they need to go to "file" page. A "share again" action on the received file will be appreciate ("home" page) !!

I understand the group but users never know who to send the file. It's like a mail you received but it's not for your service and you forward it!!

A last question : is it possible to download a file in "file" page ??? because sometime i would like to share some files between office and home for example and i can't download if the file is not on "home" page. I tried to clic on the file but there is nothing !!

Thanks for all your answers !!!

Best regards

Vincent

Hi Vincent,

In fact, when the file is on the Home page, the file is not yours, it's the sender file, so you can not share a file you're not the owner.
But we can imagine a "share again" button which could do the job copy+share I think.

For your last question, it's a bug we solved recently : http://linpki.org/news/17
You can download the updated jar or war on the http://linpki.org/projects/linshare/files page, or "svn update" your tag or trunk if you are building LinShare from the sources.

Best regards,
