Directory is another very useful function that iShipNet members can use. It is your private space where you can store all the files you need for your daily business. You can store Tech Specs about your company's products, Plan views, product info, draft files etc, that you might need when you are "on the go".
For example…
You are a Shipowning Company. You can create a separate folder for each of your Vessels and store in this folder all files and images about this Vessel. This way you can have these files available, whenever you need them, from everywhere (office, home, trip etc). You need just connection to the internet.
Let's see how it works!

Supposing that you are logged-in to iShipNet, you click on View Your Account, under Your Account menu.

How to upload and store your files in your folders

Our folder is ready to accept our files and what we have to do now is store our files in the folder we created. We click on New Upload button and we are transfered to a new page with title "New Upload". There we click on Click or Drag & Drop to Upload. Using the pop window, we select the file that we want to upload from our computer. When we complete the selection of our file or files, we see the following page:
directory 041. The type of file we are about to upload
2. The nema that we want to give to our file
3. The folder that we want to put our file in

4. The privacy settings for this file

When we finish we click on Save to store our file information and Done to save and return to our folder.

We can upload as many files as we want in each folder and we always have the option to delete, unpublish and Edit our file settings.

That is all about uploading and storing files in your account's directory.
