Flatter Files is a cloud based solution for publishing and archiving your important drawings and documents.

General Usage Instructions

Flatter Files consists of two major components. A fully featured web application for viewing and controlling your content and a desktop application that uploads your important drawings and documents. 

To use Flatter Files, you must first create an account on www.flatterfiles.com. Then download the uploader application to at least one computer that can access your content. When you log into the uploader application, you will configure the application with the folders on your computer and the file types that should be uploaded to Flatter Files. 

Anytime a file is changed, simply upload the changes using the uploader application. Once an item is complete, simply check the item in for review. Once the reviewer accepts, the item is fully viewable by anyone within your organization.
