What Are Folder Access Keys

Folder Access Keys are useful for companies that use automated programs to upload data, like files or reports to a FilesAnywhere account. These folders do not require a username or password because they are assigned a special key. This allows the automated program to reach out to this destination folder with the key and upload the files without requiring manual username and password entry. For example, employees may upload weekly reports directly into a FilesAnywhere user account (specific folder) without needing or ever being prompted for a username and password.

Then click Create New Folder Access Key, select the folder, and click Generate Key. This screen will display the folders that have Folder Access Keys, who they are Shared By, whether they are Locked or Unlocked, and when they were created. Users can filter searches and also delete old or unused Access Keys from this screen.
