Emailing a .Plan file

Recommended Posts

I have emailed plan files before but this one must be to large.  Is there a way around this?  Thanks...

Have you zipped it?

 

Upload to a service like dropbox and send a link.

so I hate to ask for help on zipping a file as I have done it many times but when I zip this file and look at it, the file name is there but nothing inside

close the plan in Chief

 

use Windows Explorer to find the file - then right click on the file and select SEND TO - choose COMPRESSED (ZIPPED) FILE

 

if still too large

 

create a Google Gmail account

my limit is 25 MB - new account may differ

 

if I mail something larger than 25 MB then google sends it to Google Drive

and the receipient can download it

 

this is free

 

yesterday I sent a 767 MB file

Or you can try Backup Entire Plan from within Chief.

Select the Send Backup Files To Zip Archive option.

Should save you a bit of fumbling around if it gets the file down small enough.

 

Or...I have used a free service called WeTransfer - free and great for large files.

Upload it to Dropbox (free version works fine for me) and then send a link to your recipient.
