9.2. File Sharing Options

Besides submit actions, preconfigured in a workflow, users can share documents with their colleagues and customers via sharing options. With File Sharing settings you can regulate what sharing options are available for your end users. To proceed, please navigate to the File Sharing tab of the Configuration section on the Admin Portal:


Allow iTunes USB file transfer — enables users to transfer files from the iPad app to computers via USB cable and iTunes.

Allow re-submitting Completed workflow documents — allows users to make changes to the files under Completed tab and resubmit those files.

Always flatten PDF when sharing: will flatten each PDF once it leaves Fluix, i.e the file will no longer be editable

Overwrite pushed documents with the same name in the app: if this setting is on and you push a file with an already existing name to Fluix app, Fluix will replace the old file with a new one.

Add to images in PDF forms on devices:

-Date and Time — once enabled, the date and time stamp will be added to all images inserted into the forms while working in the Fluix app on devices.

-Geolocation — once enabled, the geolocation will be added to all images inserted into the forms while working in the Fluix app on devices.
