New Feature – Customizable Uploader Widgets

This month, we have some new features to tell you about, as well as some hidden gems that may be new to you. Let’s dive right in!

New Uploader Widget – Made For Developers, By Developers

We’ve just released our new file upload widget, which lets you integrate ExaVault file uploads straight into your app.

With this new capability, you can now paste some HTML into your site to place an uploader widget. These new widgets come with tons of developer-centric options, like callback support, choosing what file types the uploader will accept, and more! To get started, please visit our developer documentation section.

Update March 28, 2019 – The Upload Widget has served well over the years, so we have upgraded it to a modern Form Builder. You can customize and embed a form to receive files to you ExaVault account directly on your website.

Get Alerted When a New File is Uploaded

Notification preferences for file uploads

Now that you have your Receive Folder set up, do you want to be notified when someone uploads a file? Easy – we can do that. Just select “Add Notification” on that folder, and you’ll always be up to date.
You can also specify what email addresses you would like to notify, to make sure that the people who need to be in-the-know are kept that way.

One Easy Trick to Slim Down Files

Let’s say you have a metric love-ton of images in a folder which you don’t need to access all the time, but you would like them to take up less of your precious ExaVault usage space. Maybe it’s time to think about slimming them down.

To do this, right click (or click the action menu button on the right) and select “Compress”. This will make a zip archive of your files that will be smaller than the originals*!
That’s it for us – for those of you in the United States, have a great Thanksgiving! For everyone else, we wish you a merry Thursday.

*Actual file size reduction may vary depending on file type. Consult your doctor to see if you are healthy enough for compression. Side effects of compression may include lossless lung, in-place deflation and WinZip.
