Receive files from external users with Thru Dropbox™
If you need to securely receive large files from users without a Thru account, you can create a link to your Thru Dropbox and make it available from email signatures, web portals, and anywhere that supports hyperlinks. When users upload files to your Thru Dropbox, you receive an email notification letting you know that they have dropped files in your Thru Dropbox folder.
To learn how to create a link to your Thru Dropbox, go here.
Use Thru on your mobile devices
Download Thru’s native mobile apps to access, manage and send files on-the-go. You can also access your Thru site from any device via mobile web browsers.
Sync Thru folders to your desktop
You can sync Thru folders to your Windows desktop by using the Thru Desktop Sync app. This is a great way to always have the most up-to-date files right on your desktop instead of manually downloading them every time from the web.
To add Thru Desktop Sync to your desktop, contact your Thru Account Representative.
Create and edit Office documents
With the Thru Add-In for Office 365, you can create and edit Office documents without leaving your Office applications. The add-in works with Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint and allows you to edit documents that are stored in Thru or create new files and save to Thru.
