Meet one of Acrobat.com’s new services: Adobe SendNow. The new file sharing service will be available beginning in early November—which means you still have two weeks to wait until you can take it for a spin. To tide you over until then, here’s a quick overview of some of the features you can expect to see:
Send large files, simply and securely
Here is the new one-stop destination for sending and receiving large files among colleagues and coworkers. This concept should be familiar by now—allowing for multiple people to access a single document from any number of locations—but SendNow’s delivery is all new. Using just the one service, you can:
- Send large files from your computer to one or many recipients.
- View files that you’ve sent off in the past, and see when and to whom they were sent.
- Keep an eye out for files that have been sent to you.
From a central dashboard, you can now manage your sent documents and download others, all with just a few simple clicks. If the documents contain sensitive information, you can require your recipients to sign in before viewing the file, and can set a particular time frame in which the file can be downloaded. You’ll also have a record of all of your file transactions—sent and received—so you won’t lose track of who’s seen which file and when.
That’s right, people; now you can check on the status of your sent files and see which recipients have downloaded them (and which slackers – uh, we mean recipients – haven’t).
Have you already shared the file, and realized that you forgot to add someone to the list? No problem. Locate the file in the “Sent Files” section and simply forward it with a single click.
Beyond that…well, you’ll just have to wait and see! For now, take the next two weeks to get fired up; soon you’ll reach new heights of shared achievement with SendNow.
