I am not sure if I'm in the correct forum, or if my the title of my thread is clear enough. But I do hope I can get some help from you kind gurus.
I have been asked to come up with a solution to solve an issue in the company. Right now, staffs are all using e-mails to attach their files, and cc-ing them to all relavent parties. The key person who will read the e-mail will read, make some changes, and inform the person who has sent it to them through e-mail that the things required have been done.
As our Lotus Notes e-mail is really slow at times, it some times take up to 3-5 minutes to open a file of 5MB size. It slows the network a lot as well with all the e-mail sending here and there.
I have proposed using an intranet where user logs in and attach their files, and the admin will be able to log in and retrieve these files and do the necessary stuffs. I do have some knowledge on this, but I am really new to the hosting side.
I have read some topics on hosting the website on a computer locally, and I believe that may not be such a big problem.
What I do wish to know is, how should I get the user to attach their files?
Since I wish to host the file locally on my computer (Company policies might restrict me hosting it on the server), how should a user attach a file and allow the admin to download it?
Basically, what I want is to eliminate the use of e-mail in this case, and have everything done by attaching and downloading. Something like Dropbox. I do apologize if you do not understand my question, and if there's any confusion please let me know and I'll do my best to repharse everything.
