Creating links with the DocSend Gmail Plugin for Chrome

The DocSend Chrome extension puts DocSend right inside your browser. And if you use Gmail, it also puts DocSend right inside your email compose window. You can upload documents and create links on the fly using the extension. Here's how it works:



Find the content you need, without ever leaving your inbox

With the Gmail plugin for Chrome, content can be easily discovered without having to create links or upload documents from Users can search documents or a collection of documents stored in a Space by name or notes.


Seamlessly associate your link with an account

When you select a document or Space, we will auto-populate the account associated with your recipient's email address into the Account name field. If the account does not exist, DocSend will auto-populate the email address’ subdomain. The best practice is to make sure your Account names are consistent within DocSend (e.g. <Snap>, not <Snapchat>).

Track without requiring an email address to view

The link settings match the link creation settings in the DocSend UI. If you are sending to one recipient using the extension, and require email address to view, your first viewer will not be prompted for their email address - since we know through Outlook who you are sending to. However, anyone after your first visitor will be asked for their email address in order to view your link. If you do not require an email address to view, we'll still give you other relevant information on visitors including viewing stats, operating system, and location.


After clicking “Insert document link”, your DocSend link will automatically be pasted into your Gmail message - already hyperlinked and ready to go!

Note: You can change your DocSend link’s text by clicking on the link -> selecting “Change” -> and rewording the Text to display.
