Who can use the Sendit service?
Sendit is available to anyone with valid University of Waterloo credentials. Sendit uses the Nexus active directory for authentication. For many, this is the same username and password that you use on a daily basis to either log in to your workstation or access your email.
Is Java required to use Sendit?
Sendit does not require Java.
If you have Java installed on your computer, you will experience a more feature-rich interface and uploading experience. Features that the Java-version provides are:
- Upload as many files as you want in one upload. The non-Java version limits you to 12 files per upload.
- Download multiple files with one click. If you don't have Java installed and you are sent a link to a download with multiple files, you will need to download/click each file individually.
- Visually track the status of your upload with a progress bar. If you are using the non-Java version, no progress bar is displayed so the only visual cue that you have is that the browser appears to be loading a page. For large uploads, this may give the impression that the upload has stopped or is hung. In both cases, you will see an upload confirmation page when the upload is completed.
