Samepage makes it easy to share files with co-workers in 3 different ways. Of course, you can attach files in chat messages, and you can also upload files to a team's FILES section. You can learn more about synchronizing those files to your computer in our help article on working with team files. The article below discusses the 3rd way - adding files directly to a page.
You have two options for working with files on Samepage:
Note: You must be on the Samepage desktop app to use the direct file editing feature.
To Use Direct File Editing:
To replace an outdated or existing file on Samepage:
Hover over the 4-bubble menu next to your file. From the 3-dots, select "Upload New Version," then add your new file.
If you try to open a file that is currently open by another user, you will receive a "File Locked" message:
You have the option to wait (or ask!) the other user to close the file.
Or, you can select Edit Anyway. Any changes you make will result in another version of the file. Samepage will display the most recently saved file on the page, and keep all previously saved file versions in History.
If the file has been closed but you are still receiving a "File Locked" message, be sure to check out the troubleshooting article.
To access previous file revisions:
The timeline will show you every saved file revision. From here, you can click on any of the previous file versions and download it to your computer.
We recommend you rename the file after downloading to avoid any confusion.
