Before you may create your first Wok you need to have signed up for CloudWok.
This manual applies for already signed-in users.
There are many places where you can start creating a new "Wok" from. Basically you cannot miss it. Wherever you see a big Dropbox, Google Drive or S3 button, just click it. What comes next is always the same.
Here is a detailed step by step description on how to create a CloudWok (starting from the main page).
- Choose the Cloud service you want to receive the files with
(for example Dropbox, same process applies for the alternatives)
Alternative: Access your Profile. Go to the "Your CloudWok" tab and scroll to the cloud service selection and select your cloud you'd like to create a Wok for:
- Folder name (step 1) - The name of the folder in your Cloud the files should get uploaded to. We create the folder for you if its not yet existing.
Email address (optional step 2) - Give your email address and we can notify you about uploads. Uploaders may also send you a personal message. Find a detailed description here.
Password (optional step 3, feature only available with a premuim plan) - Protect your URL with a password and only tell your desired uploaders. Find a detailed description here.
Create Wok (step 4) - To create your CloudWok click the "Create Wok" button.
Hint: For those of you how are interested in using subfolders, here is a trick on how you may already do this for Dropbox.
- You just created a new Wok! After the successful Wok creation you will see the confirmation screen. An email is also sent to inform you about the access details.
The Wok is ready for anyone to upload files directly into your Cloud. Share your new Wok with all your potential uploaders. Do this right from the confirmation screen or access the "Share" section in your Wok details.
