[ Two identical topics have been Merged by a Moderator ]

Recently there have been several Moderator comments about models and photographers keeping the within The Purestorm messaging system but this is not practical as I cant a 4 to 6 page PDF of the shoot profile. So for every shoot I need to ask for an email address

As a suggestion if you want to advise people to stay within the community for safety then you need to provide the tools to allow this.

When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Steven
Thank you for the idea but having never used dropbox how do you know the person has seen/received the document.

I may be a trogladite but I don't like leaving electronic information as I don't trust so much of modern life and keep my information to a minimum having had my identity stolen twice. Therefore I limit what I supply in the way of username emails etc. and still rely on emails and the postal service despite their imperfections.

No you don't know if they've read the 'attachment' (as it'll simply a hyperlink to a file on your dropbox account), but then how do you know they'll bother with attachments on a normal message? (it'll flag they've received and opened it but you won't get verification they've gone the next stage and looked at the attachment)

As Steven says, when you invite someone into a dropbox file, you are sent an email when the recipicant has opened the said file.   smiley

Another site has something called YOUR SHARED FOLDER which is kind of like a built in site dropbox! Very useful feature!

It's not hard to copy & paste a link though, either for the sender or recipient.

It would be quick, simple and would keep everything "in house". There's nothing not to like.

The question is, is it technically possible?
