How do I organize and share files in a Loop?

You can organize and share your stuff in a variety of ways - here are the top 5 ways you can share. Click "Show / Hide Video Tutorial" to display a tutorial, or click the tutorial to view it full-size:


1. Choose files from one Loop & add to another Loop:  Click into one of your personal Loops (or a Loop that someone else shared with you), open the menu, then click "Add items to a new or existing Loop". Next, select the files from this Loop that you wish to add to another Loop; if using one of Upthere's mobile apps, click "Add" to confirm. Then choose one of the options below:

  • To add to an existing Loop, choose one from the list (or start typing the name of one to quickly find one). Click on the Loop to select it and click "Add" to finish.  

  • To add to a new Loop, click "New", type a name for your new Loop (optional), then click "Create" to finish.  

  • Note: if you've added files to a new Loop and wish to share it with others, go into the Loop details and add people, then click "Invite user" to share the Loop.


2. Choose files from content list & add to Loop:  Click into any of the views - Flow, Photos & Videos, Music, or Documents - then open the menu and click "Add items to a new or existing Loop" (expand an artist header in Music view to show the menu). Next, select your files by clicking on them; if using one of Upthere's mobile apps, click "Add" to confirm. Then choose one of the options below:

  • To add to an existing Loop, choose one from the list (or start typing the name of one to quickly find one). Click on the Loop to select it and click "Add" to finish.  Show / Hide Video Tutorial

  • Another way to add files to an existing Loop is to click "Share", select the files by clicking on them, and select the shared Loop from the list (or start typing the name of one to quickly find it). Click on the Loop to select it and click "Share" to finish. Note: only shared Loops will be available to add the files to when using this method.  

  • Note: if you've added files to a new Loop and wish to share it with others, go into the Loop details and add people, then click "Invite user" to share the Loop.

3. Choose files from content list & send via email:  Click into any of the views - Flow, Photos & Videos, Music, or Documents - and click "Share" (expand an artist header in Music view to show the Share button). Next, select your files by clicking on them; if using one of Upthere's mobile apps, click "Share with..." to confirm. Next, type the email addresses you wish to share with, then click "Share" to finish. You can also add a name for the new Loop created from this sharing activity, or leave it blank (it will appear in your Loops list as "Shared with # other").    Show / Hide Video Tutorial

You can also add files to an existing Loop by clicking "Share", select the files by clicking on them, and select the shared Loop from the list (or start typing the name of one to quickly find it). Click on the Loop to select it and click "Share" to finish. Note: only shared Loops will be available to add the files to when using this method.  

Tip: if you've shared content with someone in the past (desktop apps) or if you've granted the app access to your contacts list (mobile apps), Upthere Home will suggest email addresses to share with when you starting typing them.


4. Choose one file in preview mode & add to Loop:  Click into any of the views - Flow, Photos & Videos, Music, or Documents - and click on one of your files to view its preview. Next, open the menu and click "Add items to a new or existing Loop". Then choose one of the options below:
