Sher.ly 2.0 – Getting Started Guide

How to use Sher.ly? Read our Step-By-Step Guide.

 

1. Register your Sher.ly account here

 

Sher.ly 2.0 is a separate system, all existing Sher.ly users need to register a new account.

When creating a new account, you will be asked to enter a name for your first Organization. If you accept an invitation to join an existing Organization, the Organization will be added to your account automatically.

Organizations are separated containers with dedicated devices, members and storage. You can have multiple Organizations and you manage all of them with the same login and password.

 

 

 

2. Download and install the Sher.ly application

3. Add a new project or select an existing one

If you’re creating a new project, you’ll need to choose a name for it.

 

4. Manage and invite new project members

When you add new users, they will automatically be signed up as free “view-only” Guests. To upgrade their status, go to your Account and change their entitlements. Read more about User status.

 

5. Add files or folders to selected projects to share them with other members

Your files in Sher.ly can have following status indicators:

 Sher.ly sync indicators ver. Bb

 

To download the file, double-click it. All downloaded data is automatically saved in a local Sher.ly folder.

 

6. Try the split screen file manager

 

You can use it to:

  • Drag & drop your files between your local folder and project

  • Drag & drop your files between two projects

You can’t drag & drop the metadata of shared files. You have to download the actual files first.

 

  • Chat with other users
