ftopia rooms go public!
ftopia is designed to make it easy to share files across different organizations. In order to trace and secure access to information, each user has to sign in with his or her password before accessing his or her data rooms.
However, user authentication is not always a requirement. Many customers use ftopia to update files directly from Windows Explorer or the Mac Finder, but once online some of these files should be made available to a wide audience. This has been impossible so far because of the enforced authentication.
Well, there was still a way: one could generate public download links for a selection of documents and then email those links to whomever. Nice for quickly sharing a few files with a limited number of persons. But how to give them complete access to a room, with its custom look and feel and its up-to-date content?
This is now possible with our brand new public rooms! In order to grant public access to one of your rooms, click on its “Settings” tab and use the related options:
You can even let anonymous visitors upload their own files! They will be stored in special folders only visible to the room manager.
The number of public rooms you can open depends on your subscription plan. Feel free to contact us to get more information about this feature.
