How do I share Bix with others?

In Bix you can share files by creating a sharable link directly on your computer, through the browser or with one of the apps for mobile devices. Choose the option that suits your needs, and set the validity for the link you want to share. By changing the validity for a link, you set the date and time for how long the link should be valid and accessible for others. Only those you share the the link with, will get access to your files.

How can I share a folder on my computer?

  1. Right click on the synchronized folder on your computer.
    Select Bix and click on Share as link.
  2. Set the validation time for the time the file would be reachable for others.
  3. Click on Create.
  4. There are two different ways to share the link you just created:

    Copy - Select this alternative to copy the link for sharing it manually with others.
    Email - Select this alternative to open a dialogue box in which you write the receiver, subject and text.

  5. Then press Send.

Deleting or renaming the shared file makes the link inaccessible. The validation time for the link is the time the link can be used to view the file. The shared file is loaded from the Bix server.


How do I share a file using my web browser?

  1. Log in to File Manager by selecting the Bix function at www.one.com.
  2. File Manager gives you an overview over files and folders from which you simply need to select the desired file or folder, and click on Share with others in the menu on the right, in order to share.
  3. A dialogue box will appear with a link to the file you have chosen. Copy the link from here and give it to those you want to share it with.

You can determine the validity of the link from the aforementioned dialogue box. The file itself is loaded from the Bix server. Deleting or renaming the file will simply make the link inaccessible.
