If you’ve used eFileCabinet’s Mobile App in the past, you know how convenient it is to be able to access documents from anywhere on your tablet or smartphone. But with the upgrade we rolled out at the beginning of July, your phone or tablet can become a mobile office, where you can not only access your files, but capture, download, share, and print documents no matter where you are. Here are just a few of the highlights you’ll find in the most recent version of our Mobile App.


Better User Experience

This upgrade to the Mobile App has overhauled the user interface, making it easier to use and more visually appealing. The simple home screen has several quick-access icons that allow you to view your recent documents, your favorite items, and any items you have checked out, all with one tap on your screen. You can also view all of your cabinets at once, and with the new, seamless user view, quickly and easily navigate to any document or folder you need.

Another great feature we’ve added is the ability to select a PIN number for easy login, as well as an adjustable time-out function. You can set the Mobile App to log you out after a certain amount of time. But when you enter the app again, you no longer have to enter your complete eFileCabinet Online login information. Just enter your 4-digit PIN and get back to work quickly and easily.

Add and Manage Documents

Have you ever been at a meeting away from your office, and a client gives you a document you need to save? Unless you’re heading straight back to your office, there are countless opportunities for the document to become lost or simply forgotten. But with the new mobile app, you can enter documents into eFileCabinet immediately.

It’s as easy as posting a picture of your food to Instagram. You can use your smartphone’s camera to take a picture of the document you wish to save. The app allows you to capture images of multiple pages, so you can lump all of the images into one file. Then you can save the document into any cabinet, drawer or file in your eFileCabinet Online profile, and you don’t have to worry about the document getting misplaced on your way back to the office.

Share Files Instantly

You’re stuck in the airport, and a client needs a copy of a document right away. With the mobile app, you don’t have to make them wait until you can get to a computer. You can easily navigate to the document and send it to your client using SecureDrawer or email.

Does your client need multiple files? That’s not a problem either. You can select several files at once and share them with just a tap on the screen. Then you can get back to your game of Angry Birds, which is ironically more difficult than the work you just completed.

The eFileCabinet mobile app gives you complete functionality even when you’re away from the office. You can create files and folders, edit folders, copy and move items, and complete virtually any other task you could complete from your computer. With the ease and convenience this upgrade provides, you may never go to the office again!
