More than 35 releases in a quarter might seem like a lot, but for ShareFile that is a standard quarter. In Q3, we hit that mark again with just under 40 releases to the ShareFile platform and tools.

Below is a highlight of the most important features we have released throughout Q3.

A single pane of glass for all your documents has been a focal point of ShareFile Enterprise since we released our first connector to Network Shares and SharePoint a few years ago. This quarter, we improve our connector story by adding support for sharing files that reside in Office 365 and Personal Cloud Connectors! In addition to accessing, uploading and downloading files from your cloud connectors such as Office 365 (OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online), Box, Dropbox, OneDrive and Google Drive, you will now be able to share files from these repositories with other users while taking advantage of ShareFile’s settings for securely sharing files.

We’ve added numerous enhancements for when you’re attaching ShareFile files to an email in Citrix Secure Mail. Starting with XenMobile 10.3.6, when selecting ‘Attach from ShareFile’, you will now flip to the ShareFile app, which allows you to see additional locations such as Restricted Zones as well as Network Shares and SharePoint Connectors. Here is a short demo of the updated integration.

Did you ever wish you could preview and interact with Autodesk files directly from within ShareFile instead of needing to download them? Now you can thanks to our newest integration with Autodesk! When you preview an Autodesk file in ShareFile, the file is now rendered and previewed with capabilities such as orbit, pan, zoom, etc.

Sync for Mac and Windows both had an upgrade to their dashboards with the addition of letting users know how long it has been since the files were synced locally on the ‘Recently Synced Files’ tab. They also added support for moving existing files into ShareFile by right clicking on a file. Additionally, Sync for Mac added support for Apple MacOS Sierra, Remote Wipe, and selective sync for folders residing within My Files and Folders.

Drive Mapper is now localized in many additional languages including German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Dutch, Portuguese, Korean, and Russian. We also made significant improvements to Drive Mapper’s performance.

The Desktop App not only added support for uploads and downloads to Office 365 and Personal Cloud Connectors, but it also added support for sharing from those same connectors!

The attachment banner for the ShareFile Outlook Plug-in got a face lift and added support for showing end users exactly when the link/files that are attached are set to expire.
