Foreflight said recently that all users can now manage documents across multiple users in the cloud with its Foreflight Documents feature. With this capability any user who is connected through a group subscription can update a document and it will update across the group.
The documents feature is enabled by Dropbox, a cloud-based document storage site. Depending on the amount of document storage necessary, this will be a free signup. Once the user has Dropbox access, the process is seamless and automatic.
While the feature was previously available only for corporate customers, users must now have a Foreflight Pro subscription to enable Foreflight Documents. For more information on how the process works, r ead Foreflight’s blog on the announcement.
