Quatrix is a great tool for acquiring files from your contacts or users with the assurance of security, detailed tracking and PGP encryption (if enabled for your account).
You can send a request for sharing files using the Share or Contacts tab.

- Add, upload and share files. For more info see File Sharing.
- Your contact or user receives the email with the Return button link to send files back to you.

Type in the message and send click on the request.
Create button. The link to return files will be generated and displayed at the top right of your account.
Click on the Copy link button and share it as you wish.
If you would like to send the request by email, tick the Notify by email check box. While creating the file request you can specify the destination folder for your returned files by clicking on the Incoming Shares link. If you haven't found the folder you want to store returned files, create the new one there.
Please note that users who receive requests should register or use an existing Quatrix account to return files.
The links uniquely point to a form to securely send files to you. Your contacts/users cannot edit the recipient address so the facility cannot be misused for general file sharing.
If PGP is enabled for your account you can ensure that files shared to you are encrypted using your public key. The files are automatically encrypted as they are queued for upload and this requires no additional skills or actions from your contacts/users. See more PGP.
As soon as your contact/user uploads files you will receive an email notification with the requested files.
You can search for files using the search box in the upper right. Files can be found based on the following properties:
- file name
- creation and modification date
- recipient and sender.
