I want to know if there is any design pattern for file sharing between devices or users. How can I chop down some steps without compromising the user experience for the file sharing.
Actually, the initial idea was to design a file sharing UX where user needs to take minimum number of steps to share a file with another user or device.
Select-file-->right click--> select sharing option --> choose method -->A: Add users name, groups (add emails) B: share the link (youtube link, image, website)
I have created task flow for file sharing but I don't know if I am missing something or not. Here, I need your help to know how would you share a file in these two scenario mentioned below.
Lets take the example of google drive or dropbox (you can choose any of them)
- When you have installed the client of one of these two service on your PC/Laptop: How do you share your file with other user or device from your PC/Laptop client
- When you are using cloud service (g-drive/dropbox): How do you share your files directly from the cloud to other users or devices.
P.S. If you haven't understand my question please feel free to ask in the comments. I would try to elaborate more.
