UpLink v1.8: Three new features

This is a huge release for UpLink. Three highly requested features are now here!


1. Bulk Export

You could always download all the files uploaded to a single request, but now you can download all of the files on an entire project at once with the export feature.



My favorite part about how this works is that it happens immediately. Most sites that implement a large data download process the files in the background and email you a link once the zip is ready to be downloaded. With UpLink, we are able to start the download right away, no matter the file size, so you don't have to wait.


2. Sensitive Requests

We take privacy and security very seriously, so we're excited to offer a new feature for requesting the most sensitive documents. There is now a checkbox on the request detail page that, when selected, ensures only the person who created the request can actually view, download, or export the files that were uploaded.



This can be helpful on larger teams for ensuring only select people on a project team can access sensitive information like payroll data or personally identifiable information (PII). Other team members will be able to see the request, status, and history, but they will not be able to preview, download, or export the files.


3. Optional Requests

Sometimes a request may not be applicable to a particular client or situation. In those cases, you still want the assignee to confirm that the request is not applicable, and that's where this option comes in. When you create the request, select the following option:




When viewing the request, the assignee now sees a checkbox they can mark to confirm that this request is not applicable.


And you'll see this when they submit the request:
