It never ceases to amaze me how we manage to keep on top of things. There’s just so much time-sensitive information we need to keep track of these days: bills, project deadlines, client meetings, doctor’s appointments, anniversaries, the kids’ birthdays. On top of all this, you need to keep track of a number of expiration dates. Not only the expiration dates of your driver’s license, or the kielbasa sitting in the back of your fridge – you also need to keep track of when your YouSendIt files, sent to you, or sent by you, are going to expire.
In this Tech Tip Tuesday post, we’ll walk through checking to see which YouSendIt files are set to expire within the next 2 days.
Files Expiring in the Next 2 Days
To see which files you’ve sent or received will expire in the next 2 days, log into your YouSendIt account on our website. Next click the Overview button at the top of the page. At the bottom of the Overview page, you will see a section titled Expiring in the next 2 days.
In this section, you can see which files you have sent, as well as which files have been sent to you, that are going to expire within the next 2 days. It’s good to check this when you can, in case you want to get in touch with a client to make sure he has downloaded the files you’ve sent, or if you’ve been sent files and have been putting off download them, you probably want to download them, rather than having to ask a client to send them again. Remember, once files expire, they are deleted from our system and are no longer available.
You can always check the expiration dates of your Sent/Received files in the Overview section of our website. However, if you have a large number of files to keep track of, you may not want to constantly manage all of your expiration dates. Therefore, it might be good to develop a habit of regularly logging into your YouSendIt account and check if you have any files expiring within the 2 days. It should also be noted that if you’re using a premium subscription, you can always modify the expiration dates of files you’ve sent.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to let us know. Thanks!
