Couchdrop understands that not everyone is technically savvy and due to this, using the likes of SFTP or other clients can cause headaches, when all you want is for files to get to where you want them. To make life easier, Couchdrop has developed "drop" which allows anyone to upload files to your Couchdrop hosted storage simply using a browser file upload portal.
The URL to be used for this service is https://upload.couchdrop.io
To use this service, create a new user under https://my.couchdrop.io/manage/users
Have your external user head to upload.couchdrop.io, enter their provided user credentials then they simply drop their file in area provided and start the upload.
All going well the below message should be presented to show that all has gone through.
Drop without the need to use credentials
- Head to your Virtual File Storage within Couchdrop and press the three dots to the right of the folder you would like to have your attachments go into. Select Properties
- Then scroll down to Upload Portal, all you need to do is Enable the checkbox and provide your user the link provided. This will then let them upload files directly into the chosen folder without needing credentials.
