What is our New Year’s resolution, you ask? To streamline, streamline, streamline. One of our goals this year is to improve the way you interact with AeroFS, starting with the way you invite and share AeroFS.

Effective immediately, you will be able to sign up and download AeroFS, as well as manage folder invitations directly on aerofs.com. No more inputting pesky 8-character invitation codes! Similarly, existing AeroFS users can now manage their invitations from any browser, on any device, even if AeroFS isn’t installed on that machine. Sending invitations to AeroFS and AeroFS folders will remain the same: you can invite people from the AeroFS menu or from the command line.

New User Sign Up Instructions:

  1. An invitation email arrives in your inbox, inviting you to sign up and install AeroFS.
  2. The link in the email brings you to a one-step account creation process:Screen Shot 2013-04-15 at 10.27.37 PM
  3. Upon completion, you are directed to download and launch AeroFS.

Accepting Shared Folders:

  1. Open the email inviting you to a shared folder, and follow the invitation link.
  2. Once signed in, you will see a list of all pending folder invitations: Screen Shot 2013-04-15 at 10.46.37 PM
  3. Choose to Accept or Ignore folder invitations.
  4. Do this one just one machine, and voila! All of your AeroFS clients will join the shared folder immediately.

NOTE: You can view your pending folder invitations at any time by logging into your AeroFS account. Simply click “Sign In” at the top-right corner of the AeroFS home page.

This update is the first of many improvements we are making in the near future, so stay tuned!

As always, we’d love to hear from you either on our user forum or via support@aerofs.com.

Happy Syncing,
Linda & The AeroFS Team
