Choose one of the following options:
● Choose Allow Access to Uploaded Files but do not Synchronize with Published Shared Folder to allow the user who is uploading files to include all recipients on the uploaded transfer so that they are notified that files are being uploaded and can access them through the uploaded file transfer.

● Choose Automatically Synchronize Uploaded Files into Published Shared Folder to make files uploaded to the Info Exchange website immediately available in the published folder on Info Exchange. An internal Project Center user will still need to receive them and extract them to the published folder (unless the next option below is checked), but other external users will have immediate access to them.
