Where do you store your documents? Do you keep them in Dropbox? Are they on your hard drive somewhere? Using a cloud-based service to manage your documents is a great way to keep things organized and easy to access. CometDocs is a place where you can create and manage all of your documents online.
Different apps out there allow you to store your documents on their storage space. Google Drive is a great example of this. But what happens if you need to share the document in a different format? You will usually need to use a 3rd party converter or download the document, convert it in something like OpenOffice and send it. Here we are going to show you how you can make the whole thing a lot easier.
When starting with CometDocs, you’ll need to either create an account using your email and a password or login with your Google Account, Facebook or Live account.
Your free account will give you 1GB of free space. That’s a lot of documents.
Once you are in, you can start to upload documents. You can either drag-n-drop them into the clipboard window or you can upload them by clicking + Add or Drop Files and a pop-up window will appear asking you which files you’d like to add.
You can only have one document in the clipboard on the free account. Once the file is added to the clipboard, you can drag it to the Store tab if you are not going to use it right away. You’ll see it in the list.
Now that some documents are uploaded, you can convert them to different file types. Head to the Convert tab to do this. There are 15 different file types you can convert to. Some of the standard options like PDF, Word (doc) and HTML are there. You will also see some others like DWG, ODT and ODS. Many of the other file managers out there are limited in comparison to these conversion choices.
The next tab is where you can transfer a file to someone via email.
If you would like, you can send people a link to the file hosted on CometDoc instead of the actual document itself. This is a good way to avoid any compatibility issues on the end of the receiver.
When you need a good place to house your documents and other files online, CometDoc is worth checking out. There are some file size and sharing limits in the free account, but if you are storing PDFs, Word documents and spreadsheets, you should have no problems. If you need more options, there are two paid account types. One should give you what you are looking for.
