Inboxes let people send you files directly to your DISCO. People can send you files in two ways:
• via their own DISCO
• via your own public upload page.
Receiving music via your inboxes cuts out the endless cycle of downloading and uploading, and lets you get on with things you'd rather be doing.
Personal and team inboxes
There are two main types of inboxes in DISCO: your personal Inbox, which is unique to you, and a Team Inbox, which is a general Inbox for your DISCO team.
In the left hand nav, you'll see both inboxes:
Each inbox has a public URL – a public page where anyone with the link can send files directly to you.
Anyone can send you files –– they don't have to be DISCO users.
Finding your Inbox URLs
You can find the link to each inbox at the top of the Inbox:
Getting notified when you've received files
When you’re sent files, you’ll be notified by email and in app, both in the notification centre, top right, and via a notification badge on the inbox itself.
You can manage your notification preferences in Settings > Inboxes. The sender will also get a confirmation email telling them their files were sent.
Importing music from your Inbox
By default, tracks you receive in your Inbox are not automatically added to your DISCO. You have control over what's added.
You can add a whole playlist you’ve received or individual tracks from it to your library as you wish via the star/favouriting function:
Favouriting tracks from the Inbox or Team Inbox will add them to both your own library and your team's library, and will make them searchable in your DISCO.
You can also add them to your DISCO by dragging and dropping them into your Shortlist and saving them in a playlist.
Removing music from your Inbox
You can remove tracks from your Inbox using the x. If the track has not yet been imported, clicking the x will delete the track. If it's already been imported, clicking the x will just remove the track from the inbox.
On our premium plans, you can create Custom inboxes. These are handy to use for, say, a particular catalogue you work with, or a project you're working on. Create custom inboxes in Settings > Inboxes.
You can manage notifications and membership for inboxes in Settings > Inboxes:
