FilesAnywhere now offers SharePoint integration!  You can now use FilesAnywhere's features from within SharePoint.  All you need to do, is embed your FilesAnywhere account within your SharePoint account.

Just follow the steps below:

Professional & Dedicated Accounts SharePoint Configuration

If you wish to embed your FilesAnywhere site inside your SharePoint site, you will need to perform the following:

  1. Inform us of your SharePoint URL (e.g. ourcompany.sharepoint.com) by either contacting your Account Rep, or emailing our support team ([email protected]), so that we can add the needed configuration on our side.

  2. You will need to configure your SharePoint site to allow iframes from the domain of your FilesAnywhere URL.  The instructions for this can be found here.


Now that you've contacted us and configured your SharePoint settings, you can set up your site within SharePoint.


Setting up your FilesAnywhere site within SharePoint

  1. Click on the Create site button at the top.

  5. After naming your site, click on the red circle in the center of the page and select Embed from the menu.
     
  6. Once the embed module is added, you will see a panel appear on the right side where you can enter your embed code.

    It looks like this.

  7. Here is an example of the embed code you should use:
    <iframe width="100%" height="100%" src="https://[YourFilesAnywhereURL]?RQSTFRM=https://[YourSharePointURL]"></iframe>
     
  8. When you're done, the SRC should look something like this. "https://private.filesanywhere.com/OURCOMPANY?RQSTFRM=https://ourcompany.sharepoint.com"
     
  9. As soon as you enter in the code correctly, the iframe will update with your site.

  11. Once you have Published your site page, you'll be able to share your URL to colleagues/employees for use.

 

Note for Safari users on Mac:

Since Safari doesn’t allow 3rd party cookies from an iFrame, here's the workaround.

You will need to set the cookie from outside the iFrame, then load the site from the iFrame inside SharePoint.
