How to Hightail

Spaces connects to Dropbox, Slack and your mailbox

Our latest release of Spaces continues the evolution of our vision of better collaboration for designers, filmmakers, marketers and creative professionals at companies large and small. As well as a number of design and performance enhancements, we’ve added the following new features our new creative collaboration platform.

Connect with Dropbox
You can now connect your Dropbox account to Hightail so you can easily add files stored there to a new or existing Space. It’s a great way to collect inline feedback on your Dropbox files. Simple select the Dropbox option from the + menu on the top right.

Untangle email threads
Take collaboration out of email with our innovative new feature that untangles email threads with multiple attachments in one simple step. If you have a thread in your mailbox that’s becoming difficult to manage effectively, simply forward it to and we’ll create a Space for you featuring all the attachments from the thread.

Share with Slack
When you’ve created a new Space, you can now share it with your team on Slack. Simply hit the Share button then the Share to a Slack channel option. After you connect to your Slack account, you’ll be able to share the Space link via any of your Slack channels.
