Uploading files on projects
File uploads on your projects are a great way to share files with your client and save them within your project for the foreseeable future.
To upload files to your project, you just need to click the "+" button on your project's Documents section and then "Upload File":
From here, you will see a modal to upload your file, as well as confirm the filename to add.
This will add the file to your project so you and your client can access it in the future. If needed, you can easily delete any file as well.
Once uploaded, they will appear in your list of project Documents, where they can be viewed and downloaded.
Sharing links on projects
Link sharing on your projects is a great way to share key links to clients and keep important information centralized. For example, you can link to Google Drive or DropBox.
To upload files to your project, you just need to click the "+" button on your project's Documents section and then "Add Link":
From here, you will see a modal to insert your file link, as well as confirm the link.
Once uploaded, they will appear in your list of project Documents & Links, where they can be clicked.
Sending attachments from projects
Another easy-to-use approach to sending files is simply sending emails right from within your Bonsai projects.
The benefit of using this feature is two-fold:
It uses any white-label branding you may have enabled for your account. This means a professional-looking email can be sent to your client, instead of a text-only email that looks more like a personal email.
It remains visible in your project timeline for later reference by both you or your client (if they have access to your Client Portal).
To send a branded email, you just need to click "Send Email & Attachments" from your project activity timeline.
This will open a modal to send an email as well as add any attachments you would like to be sent to your client (and collaborators) on the project.
