Hey Sagar, thought I'd responded month+ ago...I'm on an iPhone and the +New isn't there. My options across the bottom are "Files" "Offline" "Bookmarks" and "Notifications". It doesn't look like there's a way to upload from the phone into exisiting folders...? Thanks!
I am able to do this fairly easy. I just did a field survey and uploaded pictures to a folder. Make sure you have the Egnyte app downloaded. On android, go to files, and click on camera. You should see your photos, long press a photo and drag to highlight all photos to upload. Then click the share icon, and share via Egnyte, then you can navigate to the folder you need to upload to.
Thank you @KBennehoff for helping our fellow community members. We do appreciate your efforts.
Let me know and I can provide steps for whichever is needed.
I haven't found either the Egnyte or FotoIn app successful in automatically saving/syncing to our Egnyte cloud without having to take additional steps at every point of picture capture.
What we are trying to accomplish is to replace our Dropbox photo auto-sync feature, which syncs all stills (and vids if turned on to do so) to the cloud via wifi (and/or data if selected) realtime, without needing to be selectively told to do so at each snap.
If it's possible to sync by individual selection, it would seem equally possible to sync ALL automatically, realtime as pics and vids are captured... and there would not seem a lot of logic to NOT sync automatically.
Am I missing something easy?
Hello @David Donhoff,
As far as I know, a clicked photograph can be uploaded to Egnyte using the Upload to Egnyte feature. However, there is no automatic way to upload the clicked photograph/screenshot to be uploaded to a default folder in Egnyte.
I will certainly have a chat with our engineering team to see if any things on lines of this feature is on the way.
Hi @David Donhoff, I wanted to circle back with you on this since I've spoken to our products team.
This is not currently on our roadmap. We discussed doing an automatic photo library sync but many customers were against it for privacy reasons and it seems there could be similar concerns about screenshots since these tend to be end user devices.
Julie, thanks... guess we'll have to keep running Dropbox for photo sync then...
By the way, in Chrome at least, there is no "accept as solution" button or link.
@David Donhoff, sorry you have to continue to use another solution for that piece! If our team or someone in the community comes up with an idea on how to circumvent the security issue inherent with this option, then we can explore it further.
Regarding the "accept as a solution" button. Thanks for looking to use that! Actually, the way the community is structured, only the original poster, @Michael Muslin in this case, can accept a response as a solution since they asked the original question. So I guess my signature is a bit misleading in that way... darn!
Thanks for your community support David!
The security solution seems pretty easy, since Egnyte allows each folder it's unique permissions capabilities. If the Egnyte app for Android/Apple simply allowed automatic direct image/video upload/sync to a user-specified folder, that folder's security access can be set by the user (or administrator.)
Thanks @David Donhoff. I've passed the info onto our Products team.
Happy holidays to you as well!
