fileee offers a variety of alternatives for uploading documents. You can choose one of the alternatives or use several of them simultaneously or alternately to manage your paperwork in fileee. Please note the maximum file size for uploaded documents and the supported file formats.
- Manual upload
Start uploading documents using the fileee web interface. Click on the green and white plus symbol in the lower right corner. This opens a dialog window in which you can select all the documents you want to upload. Confirm the selection by clicking on "Open" (might be different depending on the operating system). Then fileee immediately starts importing your documents. This process can take several minutes depending on the number and size of the selected documents and the speed of the Internet connection used.
- Scanning with the fileeeApp
The easiest way to scan and import your documents at the same time is with our fileeeApp for iPhone and Android mobile phones. Download the fileee app from the AppStore or Google PlayStore and follow the instructions on the screen.
- Import with personal fileee email address
Each user receives a personal fileee e-mail address from us which is in the following format: username.XXXX@my.fileee.com. You can find your personal fileee email address in your account settings.
You can send e-mails with a document attachment to this e-mail address. The attachments will then be automatically imported into your fileee account if they match the above mentioned criteria concerning size and file format. You can also use the email subject for tagging the attached documents or assigning them to a fileeeBox. For example, if you write #Tax in the subject line, the tax tag will be added to the document. Please note: This only works with tags you have already created in the fileee app before. The term @box1 automatically assigns the document to your first fileeeBox.

- Import via connected cloud services
You can connect your fileee account to a variety of cloud services (e.g. your email account, Dropbox, GoogleDrive or OneDrive). To do this, go to "Connected Services" in your account settings. The full list of supported services can be found here. After connecting you can choose in the settings which folders of the respective cloud service should be synchronized with fileee.
From now on fileee will regularly retrieve the documents from the selected folders and add them to your fileee documents. Please note that this only works in one direction so far. Your fileee documents will not be exported to the cloud service.
This is especially useful if you have your own scanner connected to your computer. Many cloud services offer synchronization with a selected folder on your computer. For example, you can synchronize your scan folder with the cloud service; connecting fileee to that cloud service will then allow fileee to pick up the documents from there. Automatically. Your cloud provider can tell you exactly how this mechanism can be set up.
