Relaunch of FileCentral – Focus on security and GDPR

We have relaunched FileCentral with a new modern layout focusing on security and GDPR.

In order to meet GDPR regulations we have improved processes and technical features. All files are always stored encrypted and within the European Union.

We have also added the possibility of signing a Data Processing Agreement (DPA).

Integrera FileCentral inbox på en befintlig sajt

Det är ganska enkelt att lägga in FileCentral inbox på den egna hemsidan genom att använda en s.k. iframe.

På den sida där man vill ha sin inbox lägger man till följande kod:

<iframe width="540" scrolling="auto" height="500" frameborder="no"
  src="http://www.filecentral.se/filecentral/inbox/<inboxnamn>/upload.html"
  name="inbox" id="inbox"></iframe>

Byt ut “<inboxnamn>” mot namnet på din inbox och använder din sajt https (säker anslutning) byter man ut “http://” ovan mot “https://”.

Man kan också behöva justera bredden och höjden lite grann beroende på hur sajten ser ut i övrigt. Det är viktigt att testa några uppladdningar så att man ser att ser bra ut på den sida som visas efter uppladdning.

Finjusteringar vad gäller typsnitt, färger, marginaler osv kan göras genom att ladda upp ett stylesheet (css) för inboxen.

Nedan ser du ett exempel på hur det kan se ut när man stoppat in sin inbox på en hemsida.

Custom download page

It is now possible to create a custom download page for paid accounts (Business and Premium Inbox). By adding one HTML element and including some Javascript it is possible to turn virtually any web page into a FileCentral download page.

<div id="filecentral-custom-download"></div>
<script type="text/javascript"
  src="http://www.filecentral.se/js/filecentral-custom-download.js"></script>

First add a div with id “filecentral-custom-download” where the information will be added. Place it where you want the file list to appear. Then we include the FileCentral javascript code that will generate the file list and place it in the div. That’s it!

Now you should be able to access your web page. You can either access it without a download code:

http://www.example.com/download.html

You should then see a form which requests you to enter a download code, or, you can access it while specifying a download code in the url (request parameter “c”):

http://www.example.com/download.html?c=123123123-123123-123123-123123123

You can style the div and the file list by adding to your style sheet for the page.

In order to enable the functionality in FileCentral you need to add the download page url to the “Custom download page” field under “My profile” for your account in FileCentral. The new url will now be used in all e-mail notifications sent to recipients.

When the page is loaded the download page url will be matched to the custom download page setting for the account and they must match otherwise an error will be displayed.

Advanced users are welcome to download our javascript code, modify and use it in any way they like for more advanced integration and styling.

Try out FileCentral Desktop – Beta

We have now opened our beta trial for FileCentral Desktop.

This application will improve functionality and reliability when uploading files to FileCentral.

It provides the following extended functionality:

* Automatic retries
* Pause and resume of uploads
* Possibility to send files larger than 2 GB
* Files are transparently split into smaller parts during upload in order avoid limitations in some firewalls.

The beta trial runs on http://beta.filecentral.se which is a separate system with a “clean” database. This means that in order to participate you need to register and verify your e-mail account before logging in.
After the beta period the database will be cleared again and therefore the beta system should not be used for important files/transmissions.

We have increased the levels for the free acount in the beta environment to business levels plus it is possible to send up to 5 GB in one job.

In order to participate:

1. Register at http://beta.filecentral.se

2. Download and install the client (bi-lingual, english and swedish)
Mac: http://updates.filecentral.se/files/fcdesktop-1.1.25547-20101228-osx.dmg (50 MB)
Windows: http://updates.filecentral.se/files/fcdesktop-1.1.25547-20101228-windows-installer.exe (111 MB)

3. Read through the FileCentral User’s Guide (PDF)
http://www.filecentral.se/files/fcdesktop-manual-10-en.pdf

4. Run the application. You need to fill out your account information and also choose “Server: Test (beta.filecentral.se)” on the tab “Settings” -> “Account”.

5. Please provide us your feedback by sending an e-mail to support@infoflexconnect.se.

We look forward to receiving your feedback (positive or negative) and your ideas on how to improve the application and site.

Please remember not to use the beta trial for transferring vital files. In those cases use the current production site instead, http://www.filecentral.se.

Thank you very much for your support!
