Mnemonica Delivery Boxes are used to send archives to other Mnemonica users. To access the Delivery Boxes click on the box icon on the sidebar. The Delivery Boxes page is divided into 3 tabs: inbox, outbox and history.
You can send with no limitations in size and nesting:
Delivery Boxes are arranged in an inbox/outbox email looking environment. The inbox tab contains the received Boxes. The outbox tab contains the draft and sent Boxes.
Delivery Boxes are personal, they are not shared with other members of the Project.
Delivery Box service is not a storage service, it's a straightforward file transfer service.
Hence, each Delivery Box has an expiration time:
- Drafts: 5 days
- Sent and received: 1 to 7 days, user-decided
After the deadline, the Boxes expire and they disappear from the inbox or outbox lists. All uploaded media is deleted. Media coming from the Screening Rooms will not be deleted after the Box expiration.
When you send a Box to someone a delivery is made. In addition to the Box content, each delivery includes:
- one recipient
- an expiration date
- an attached message
If a Box has been sent to multiple recipients, every recipient determines a delivery itself. The deliveries related to a single Box, are listed in the detail panel of the Box itself in the deliveries tab.
While a sent Box is still alive, it can be sent over and over to anyone. Each delivery renews the Box expiration date.
Sent & received Boxes history
Each delivery, as soon as it's made, it's saved in the history tab. The history tab contains the whole sent and received deliveries within a Project. Basically, it's the log of your file transfer activity.
REMEMBER: a Delivery is not a Box and doesn't contain any file.
Using Boxes in the Mobile App
In the Mnemonica Mobile App you can create, populate, seal, and send Boxes just like in the web app. The only difference is that the Boxes you receive are read-only, you cannot download their content from mobile.
