Using Egnyte for Gmail Extension - Beta

Overview

The Egnyte for Gmail integration allows users to securely share files in Gmail by attaching Egnyte file links directly from your Egnyte account and protecting them with access control. The integration also allows users to save incoming attachments directly into your Egnyte folders.

Note : The Gmail integration is currently in beta release, and we are still working on some small usability and stability issues. Please bear with us.
