Hi my name is Maeve and I've been using YouSendIt for about a year now...  I've been perusing the community the last few months, but this is my first real post :smileyhappy:  Seems like a great place to get answers without having to call in.

Re: Introduce Yourself to the Hightail Community

I've been using yousendit for about 6 months and loved it.  I use this to send content to both of my radio shows, and it's been a godsend.  I just had to say thank you, and to tell you that as I scrolled down to try and find the logout button, I saw you're little post saying that I looked good today.  Thanks for the laugh!

Hello HIghtail,

 

I've been using YouSendIt (now Hightail)  for quite some time now. This service is being extremely helpful for sending larger voice files .

Re: Introduce Yourself to the Hightail Community

I used You Send It ocasionally, but have now moved, as with us all, to HighTail
With the increase in family pics needing sharing and the upgraded DLSR having much larger file sizes, I need to 'share' more, so will be using Hightail for this

Re: Introduce Yourself to the Hightail Community

Hi, I'm antidotefx and I use Hightail almost daily, to transfer files to my freelancers and final high-resolution Quicktime files to clients.

 

One thing I noticed since you guys went "Hightail" is how on the Upload page, while uploading my "Estimated Time Remaining" always reads 5 seconds. What's up with that? I'm on a Mac and it's the same whether I'm on Safari, Firefox or Chrome browser.

 

Anyway, love the speed and reliability of the service, looking fwd to seeing the changes ahead!

 

Cheers,

My name is Brett, and I've been using YouSendIt and now Hightail for a couple of years.  I am a commercial production one-man-band in Las Vegas, producing Spanish language commercials and shows in high definition.  The company I work for has a paid account, and I use it to send commercials to clients for previewing every day.  I also use it to receive commercials for broadcasting by giving clients and production houses the link to our dropbox within Hightail, and I wish more of our clients and production partners were willing to actually use that link since it allows me to download with more speed than any other method I've tried so far.  My favorite is the Hightail Express app, as I don't have to navigate through the web page, and it seems to upload a bit more quickly than the web page.  There is a little trick that I've learned, however.  When sending multiple files to different recipients, it helps to use tabs in my browser to queue multiple simultaneous uploads.

 

Edit:  Juan Nieto is the name of the account holder, but I (Brett) am the primary user.  I love the purple car.

Re: Introduce Yourself to the Hightail Community

I have to say, the little tag at the bottom of your site, "You look great today!" and "You look great in those pants!" sort of creeps me out. Not sure if it's a joke, or a way to get a response, or if you are commandeering my camera and spying... I think an inspirational blurb would do you more good and wouldn't seems so, dare I say "Forward"... Other than that, I'm pleased with the service and simplicity.

Re: Introduce Yourself to the Hightail Community

Hello all!  I am a professional photographer.  I subscribed to this service when it was Yousendit, now Hightail to send large files to my customers.  Mostly large zipped files or jpegs.  It's nice having the online storage for my frequently used documents, such as pricing, contracts, licensing agreements, etc.  So far the transitions from YSI to Hightail has been unnoticeable, other than my status bar during upload constantly reads 5 seconds.

 

I am a forum junkie.  Whether it come to customer service questions, product info, tutorials on how to work on my 4wheel drive vehicle, camera equipment, assembling a toddler bed, etc.  I turn to forums before calling customer service and look forward to chatting with y'all if ever I need any assistance.

 

Respectfully,

Hi Joshua,

 

Thanks for the post and taking the time to let us know who you are- we are stoked to read we work well for business needs!

We have heard from a few users now about the 5% progress bar issue, and our Ops team is looking into this further. Can you tell me what browser (and its version), you are using when you experience this? Are you able to reproduce on a different browser? The reason I ask is I haven't stumbled on this problem when using Safari, Google Chrome, or Firefox. 

 

Really like to read you like to browse forums- I am the Community Manager here at Hightail and would love any feedback you can give me on how you think we can spice things up! Be sure to check out our Teck Deck to learn the latest tips on how to get the most out of your Hightail account. 

 

Thanks again for your post, I look forward to your response!

Hello.  YSI user for past 3-4 years.  Totally get the Hightail re-image, good for you.  I'm a computer nerd-for-hire and part-time commercial voice talent.  I use Hightail to move my product and save my computer-med bag online so I can pull it out of the cloud any time I need it.  Pretty handy.

 

This isn't the place for tech support, but I'm looking for it.

 

Thanks for making this service available, I wish you well.

Presently, i am touring South East Asia, performing, teaching workshops, recording audio and video on a daily basis. And also raising money for the Soulshine Foundation, a beautiful house tat i own in Bordeaux, France and whose purpose is to become an international platform for music education, entrepreneur, networking and simply pushing the boundaries of international collaborative work, enabling the creative process.

 

I was wondering if you guys would be interest in following and supporting us, as a company providing an awesone service for the top entrepreneurs and media people of this planet.

Hi Kathleen/Kelly,

 

I was asked to use YouSendIt by a General Contractor to whom I was bidding a fire protection project. I estimate fire suppression, fire alarm and fire extinguisher projects part-time for my high school buddy's business. I am also a single part-time college student and professional writer living in the Chicagoland area.

 

I haven't used your product recently, as I am not bidding as many projects as I used to, but I will continue to keep your service in mind and will recommend its use to others.

 

TTYL,

Re: Introduce Yourself to the Hightail Community

Hello Kathleen,

 

I've been using YouSendIt/Hightail for a couple of years now—love it. I have new need though—can you tell me how can I use HT to allow folks to download a large PDF file from my website? Or can you point me to where I can find the answer? I searched the forums, but perhaps I'm not asking the right question.

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: Introduce Yourself to the Hightail Community

Hi Jeff,

 

Great question.  Have you tried embedding a link into your website that will direct folks to your PDF file? 

 

The Folders tab on our website is your space to store, share, and collaborate. When you create a folder, it can be used to backup all of your most precious family photos and videos, store private records, or collaborate with a business partner on an important presentation. When you roll over any file in the Folders section, you will see an Actions drop down menu that contains many actions you can take on the file. In this Knowledge Base article, we will be discussing the Get Link action (pictured below).

 

2013-07-09_20-52-00.jpg

 

The Get Link action is a quick and easy way to get a download link for one of your stored files. The great thing about this option is that you can drop the link into your website. When someone clicks the link, he or she will be taken to a download page.

 

Does this help?  Let me know if you have other questions...

Re: Introduce Yourself to the Hightail Community

Hi - I just started using Hightail in the last month and I love it. Now I'm investigating whether or not the file-sharing functionality will be a good fit for my project team with members spread across three continents!  It will depend on how the versioning control works, but I'm excited about the potential. It seems like the desktop app especially would make collaborating on team files a breeze.

Auto Send

Does the application, when linked to Applian Replay AV allow for auto send?

I have it configured and the You Send It Lite window opens but seems to require an active SEND click.  I need the ability for Replay AV to send the file automatically.

 

Thanks

Re: Introduce Yourself to the Hightail Community

Hi. My name is Joe, I am a musician and record producer based in north London UK. I have been using YouSendIt probably for about 10 years! I have a paid account as I need to send and receive pretty large files. It works great for me and I have never had a problem with the service - how many services can you say THAT about?

 

I really wish the service had a pause/resume/scheduler (like most download managers) so I can pause up/downloads to watch YouTube or schedule the really bandwidth intensive stuff to happen after I have 'left the office'. better integration with Gmail would be great for contacts (could Hightail even work directly within Gmail? That would be awesome).

Re: Introduce Yourself to the Hightail Community

- Jack - I was cleaning up some bookmarks and didn't recognize what this was. Thought I'd sign up to see what this is all about. Turns out I must have registered some time in the past, although there's no evidence I've yet uncovered demonstrating any activity with this account. I have a vague recollection of being told I'd get a file here and it being an issue on the sender's end which resulted in the file being transmitted some other way. I've also been hacked on occasion. Who knows? My principal activities are art, law and surf. Past the middle part of middle age. I have a feeling this is a useful tool but no immediate use for it.
