Shared Files
Updated over a week ago

Apricot can store documents of up to 25 MB each as "shared files." These can be uploaded to your Apricot database to provide easy access to routinely needed documents, such as HIPAA releases, signup sheets, etc.

Shared files can also store small image files.

  • Shared Files are "static" meaning that someone cannot open and edit it and save the changes in Apricot.

  • You can create a link in a bulletin to a shared file using the Link button. To get the link: hover over the shared file Actions button, right click on Download, choose Copy Link Address

  • Standard Users won't have access to any shared file until you grant them access via their permission set(s).
