Support with File Requests

Submitting a File Request

The only way to submit a File Reqeust is from the Project Dashboard:

If there is only one Organization in the Project, you'll be asked to add a second before being able to complete the File Request process. Clicking the link or button above will take you to the screen below. You'll need to follow the link to invite a Member from another Organization:

Once you have at least two Organizations in the Project, you'll be allowed to continue with the request wizard. Simply write out a descriptive phrase for the types of files you need and then select the Organization responsible for responding to the request. We recommend that you keep the request specific rather than broad so that it's easier to find files later once they've been uploaded.
