Free file sharing from your computer
If you’re in a Glip conversation, you can click the little paper-clip icon on the right side of any message field. That will let you search your computer’s hard drive, or a number of other sources (which we’ll explain below), for the file you want to attach.
All you have to do is select the appropriate file, and Glip will drop it into your communication stream. Your team will see it immediately in the conversation, and it will also be stored securely in your Glip workspace where you’ll be able to retrieve it later.
Free file sharing from within Glip
Now let’s say you’ve added that file to one Glip team’s communication stream, and a few days later you want to share it with someone else, or maybe add it to a different Glip conversation or event.
All you have to do is open your files area on Glip, and you’ll be able to grab the file and drop it into the other team or conversation. If you’re looking for an older file in Glip, and you’re not sure which team you originally shared it with, or when, you can narrow your file search to those you uploaded.
Free file sharing from your favorite cloud storage accounts
Another way Glip makes free file sharing easier is through our integrations with many of the most popular cloud storage apps—Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, and others.
(We even integrate with other tools to help you pull other important information into your Glip communication streams, like Trello, to alert you of updates to cards and boards in your Trello project management account, or GitHub, if you work with a team of coders, to bring coding updates right into your Glip conversations.)
Don’t just share that file, collaborate on it!
Whichever method you or a teammate chooses to share a file with your Glip team, say a spreadsheet or a presentation file, it doesn’t have to just sit there. Glip is all about collaboration after all, so we’ve designed your team’s workspace to let anyone (with permission) annotate, update, and add notes to a file. That file and the original can then both be stored in your Glip workspace, meaning your team can collaborate, iterate, and share ideas while still maintaining version control and preserving a record of all changes and suggestions made to the file.
This is what true team collaboration is supposed to look like.
