Collaboration between Egnyte Users

Overview

Collaboration with other Egnyte users is quick and easy.  File viewers can directly communicate with the file owners by adding messages in the Comments pane of the file.  Use Mentions to @name another Egnyte user in a comment and the user will be notified with the message content and a link to the file.  Download the Egnyte mobile app for iOS or Android to receive instant push notifications to your mobile device when you are mentioned on a file.

File Sharing

Quickly share a file with other Egnyte users on your domain who already have permissions for the file. Mention them in a comment and your collaborators will receive an email and a push notification on their mobile device (if enabled).

 

                

 

Another way to share share a file with other Egnyte users on your domain who already have permissions for the file is to send a direct link. You can find this link in the details tab when you file preview an image. This link will work on the Web UI, iOS devices, and Android devices.



 

Request File Edits

Mention your collaborator with an instruction to edit a Microsoft Office file.  Your collaborator can quickly open the file in the respective Office Online application on their desktop or mobile device, make edits, and the changes will automatically be saved back to Egnyte.  For more information on the Microsoft integration with Egnyte, please refer to this article on the HelpDesk.
