You've just finished a meeting with two new colleagues whom you were getting up to speed on the new training course material.  As usual, you find yourself running from one meeting to the next with barely a moment to spare.  Before you forget, you want to give them access to the folder content so they can review the material.  As you're in the elevator traveling to the 3rd floor for your next meeting, you pull out your handy iPhone to share the folder.


From the Hightail iPhone App, you can easily share, upload, create, rename, or delete your files and folders all from the fast-acting Actions Toolbar. A simple swipe over a folder allows for quick access to actions for each file and folder.


1.  Tap on My Folders

2.  Navigate to the folder you want to take action on:

How to Use the Quick Access Toolbar:


  • Share: Invite others to view your folder. You can also set permissions that allow participants to view and modify folder content.
  • Upload: Upload photos or videos directly from your mobile device into that designated folder.
  • New Folder: Create a new folder, or new sub-folders.
  • Rename: Easily change the title of your folder.
  • Delete: Remove the folder and all of its content from the cloud.

You have complete customization and control over your Hightail folders from your mobile device.  Next time you're running from meeting to meeting, you can rely on Hightail for quick access to all of your data on the go.
