Transferring files and documents manually between multiple parties can be a hassle, and can open the door to mistakes like accidentally sending the wrong files across. To avoid this, GoldFynch makes this easier for both you and the recipients - it gives you the option to share a production directly from the production interface. It saves you from having to download, label, and keep track of which productions were sent to whom, and when. Additionally, you will be notified of the time and date the production was shared, downloaded, and opened.


The case is shared through a 'share link' that GoldFynch generates which you can either copy and paste to the person you wish to share the case with, or which GoldFynch can automatically email it to them. The recipient can choose to download the file as a zip file from the link or create a new GoldFynch case with the contents of the production.


Here's how to share your production:

Step 1. Click on the "Production" tab in the left navigation pane to access the production interface, and click on the 'Share' button of the production you wish to share:
