SynchroNEES is a desktop tool for sharing files within groups. If you want to share some data with your research group or other colleagues, start by creating a group on NEEShub. Then, click on the Data Sharing tab within a group to create a "drop box," which acts as a shared folder for the group. Only members of the group can read/write data within the drop box folder; data stored there is protected and backed up, although other members of your group can overwrite it.

The SynchroNEES tool makes it easy to access your drop box folder. Download and install this tool on your desktop machine. When you run the tool, it will ask you to log in with your NEEShub username and password, and it will display the list of groups that you belong to. Clicking on any one of the groups will bring up a tab showing the drop box for the group, and you can drag/drop items into and out of the drop box. See the SynchroNEES Tutorial page for more details.
