Share Files Via Bynder Express

  • Updated

You can use Bynder Express instead of a third-party app (WeTransfer or Hightail) to share files (up to 40 GB) via email or link.

The files you share in Bynder Express will not be uploaded or shown in the Asset Bank and will not require a login to download. The transferred files count toward your contracted DAM storage; however, once the link expires, it will no longer count toward your storage space.

The Transfer History section of the portal provides portal administrators with an overview of the users who use Bynder Express and the files they share.

If you want to share files that live in your Asset bank (internally with Bynder users or externally with third parties) you can share assets, create, share, and manage Collections.
