Introducing Multi-file Zip Download

16 Dec

One of the convenient features that PBworks customers use a lot is the ability to upload multiple files at once.  This is a great time-saver when uploading files like photos, images, or related documents.

Unfortunately, web browser security settings prevent you from downloading more than one file at a time.  It’s not a PBworks restriction; it’s a web-wide restriction.

Fortunately, we’ve just released a feature that allows you to getaround this restriction and download multiple files, and even multiple folders.

The new Zip Download feature lets you compress multiple files into a single .zip file, which you can then download.  You can include multiple files from a single folder, or even multiple folders and subfolders.  When you extract the files from the .zip archive, all the folder and sub-folder relationships will be preserved.

While it was possible to download an entire workspace as a .zip file before, this was restricted to administrators, and seemed like overkill when you just want to download a subset of the workspace’s files.  The new Zip Download feature is accessible to all users.

And even if you’re downloading a ton of files, we’ve made it easy.  If you don’t want to wait for all the files to be processed for download, just click a link, and we’ll email you when the .zip file is ready for you.

Zip Download is now available at no extra cost to all our Business customers (including Agency Hub, New Business Hub, and Legal Hub).
