Share files using Quick Share

Cway Quick Share is used for sharing files with no affiliation to a specific project.

To choose and share files, follow these steps:

  1. In Quick Share, click Share

  2. In the Create share dialogue there are two tabs, General and Media.
    Go to the Media tab.

  3. Drag-n-drop files from anywhere in Cway or your own desktop into the drop zone.

  4. Go to the General tab, fill in the details and click Create.
    Tip: In the start menu there's a Users menu. If your recipient has a Cway account, simply search the email address and drag & drop it from the list to the emails drop zone in the General tab in the share dialogue.

The recipient will receive an email with a link to Cway saying that files are available for their download. In the Quick Share window, the files that you've shared have this icon in front of them:


When your recipient has downloaded the files, the red dot marking the share in Quick Share turns green.

Alternative; If you click Send me a link that I can forward no login is required for the recipient. You get a mail with a link which you can forward to any receiver. It's an anonymous share and Cway will not log any download history.
