How do I share files?

Updated at March 31st, 2021

There are three options here. You can either upload files directly to the cloud, in the chat or on the start page as news.

1. In the corresponding folder in the Sdui cloud

Open the Sdui Cloud. You can find this in the footer under "More".

Now click on the "Cloud" tile.

Select the group with which you would like to share a file from the overview. You can now upload a file within the group folder using the red plus in the header.

2. Share as a file directly in chat

Select the “Chats” button in the lower function bar.

You can then click into the relevant group chat or individual chat in the overview of the chats suggested to you.

Suggestion: You can also use the search bar to enter the name of the chat / person to find the relevant chat more quickly.

When you have selected your chat, you can use the "plus" button in the footer to select a file and share it in the chat.

Files that are shared here are also automatically saved in the corresponding cloud folder. You can find these collected under "Chat attachments"

3. As news on the start page

You can call up the function menu of the start area with the “Plus” button in the app's footer.

Then select the option “Write news”.

In the next step you can choose the recipients. A distinction is made between five different areas. These can be individual users, user groups or a combination of both. When you have selected all recipients, click on "Next" in the header.

In the next step, enter the heading (optional) and the content (mandatory field) and at this point you can add a file or an image as an attachment using "+ Add attachment". Images are displayed between the headline and the content.

Finally, it is possible to determine whether the recipients should receive a push message and whether a read receipt is required.

The news can then be published using the “Send” button.

Note: Files that are shared here are not automatically transferred to the associated cloud folder of the group. These can ONLY be accessed via the start area.
