A few days back, we updated the Fliiby uploader, adding the very-much-requested bulk-editing feature that lets you change things like title, description, tags and other options for multiple files at once. It’s faster, more streamlined, and kicks your Fliiby editing workflow into high gear! Now you can even preview what you are uploading as soon as you select files for upload, you will see discoverability score for your files (chance to be discovered by other people via search), and you can share files instantly on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.
When we started Fliiby a few years ago, the whole idea was to create seamless file upload process in order to create file library. As the project progressed, so did upload evolved – from basic multiple file upload and editing – to this powerful digital content publishing platform with file monetization possibilities.
Fliiby V3 initial upload design in the form of on-page panel lacked simplicity and usability. After careful watch, we have re-designed it as a standalone page with much clearer & simplified file uploading, describing and sharing the process.
Most important new future is “Discoverability” score, that shows how big are chances that other people will be able to discover your files. This is great signal of quality of content you create, and if done properly – with time – will result in more views (and revenue) for your files.
Next, is a “Mass file editing” part, that allows you to set title, description and tags, together with other options (like monetization, download, embed, etc) for all files in upload – with just a few clicks. With it, you can publish a large batch of files very easily.
And special attention was put to “”Sharing” part – available at the end of upload process – where you can post your files instantly to Facebook, Twitter and other social networks, or you can grab and format embed codes and embed files directly onto your site/blog! It’s that simple.
We witnessed the evolution of upload, back from the days when the upload was done via single file browse dialogue in browsers, to now-days advanced JS/HTML5 approaches. With our commitment and dedication, we believe we have contributed and shaped the course of how file uploading should be done.
We invite you to give it a try and please share your thoughts with us, how we could improve it even further and make best file upload experience. Happy uploading ^_~
