Get Started: Transition from Collect It to using Email Attachments
If you used Collect It to receive file submissions, consider using your email program to accept file attachments. The information below covers how to request and retrieve file attachments. If you are accepting files that must be submitted by a specific deadline, use the emails date/time stamp to record when submissions were received.
Request file attachments from submitters
- If you want to create an account specifically to receive submissions, consider setting up a Shared NetID. This allows multiple people to access the account and retrieve file submissions.
- Whether you use a new or existing mail account, review this information for how to set up inbox rules.
