How to receive electronic files from someone outside of Yale Community using files.yale.edu
Yale community members needed to receive electronic files from someone working outside of Yale will need to send that person a "Request Upload" email. This is the only way a person from outside of Yale can transfer files to you.
Click the Request Upload button on the right side of the home page.
Fill in the information in the "Request Upload to Filelocker" message box.
Click the "Create Request" button. A system-generated email will be sent to the Non-Yale person granting them access with instructions to upload (transfer) the file(s) to the Yale recipient.
Note: Click the Other options checkboxes if you would like to grant this person the ability to perform multiple file uploads. A password is needed for this functionality and should be one that is used solely for the purpose of transferring files. (Do Not Use your Yale NetID password.) Remember, it is best to keep the URL and password separate from each other.
Click on "Create Request"
This completes the process.
