This site saved my life during a group project I had to do for one of my classes where we had to make a group presentation. It was impossible to make our schedules coincide so instead I went hunting for a solution. We were able to drop off each of our portions of the presentation so that I could put it together.
I recommend that you start by checking out the video on the main page, as it explains all about the site and how it works.
To get started creating a drop, just type in a drop name at the end of the drop link in the choose a new name field.
For example it will look like:
When you click it the “abc123df” will disappear and you can type in your own name for your drop location.
Once you’ve input a name it will look like:
The nice thing is that as soon as you type in a name for your drop it will let you know if that name is already taken. If it is taken you can do one of two things; you can add a number to the end of what you’ve already typed, or you can completely change what you’ve named it.
Next you’ll click the Select Files button, to choose what you want to upload to the drop point you’re creating. Once you’ve done that click the green Create a Drop button.
It will then ask you to create a password and provide a recovery e-mail address. Once you’ve done that click the Save Settings button. It will let you know if it was successful and then start uploading the files that you’ve selected.
For your group members to access the drop they’ll need the URL you created for the drop, with that they should be able to get the file and add more files to the drop.
For any questions you may encounter be sure to check out their handy FAQ, you can find it on the How To navigation tab at the top of the screen. You can also find the extended introduction video and more help links there.
This is an awesome site, check it out today!
