Simple, fast uploads from your desktop to Air.
Conveniently located in your Mac's menu bar, Air Lift makes uploading files to Air a breeze. Your content appears on Air organized exactly how it does on your desktop, and it's versioned so that you can easily track changes with your team. Sit back, relax, and let us do the heavy lifting!
Create a watch folder to work locally in your favorite editing software and push changes up to Air when you're ready. Edits are uploaded as new versions, so your team can track changes over time.
Just need to get a few files up to Air ASAP? Drag and drop them right into the app: no need to open up the browser and log in, because Air Lift lives in your menu bar.
Never worry about accidental deletions again. Air Lift uploads files, and that's it. Edits on Air won't affect the files on your computer, and removing files from your watch folders won't delete them from the cloud. Free up space on your computer whenever you want, worry free.
Do you hit save a million times a day, just in case? No need to change that habit when you’re using Air Lift. We track every change, but you can decide how often your changes get published to Air. Push your updates exactly when you’re ready to create a new version - or ignore them and keep editing until your work is perfect!
Yes, you can still use the app on Air's free plan. Member and storage limits still apply as usual.
Any sub-folders will be mapped to sub-boards in Air, with the same names! Your organizational structure within your local folder will be maintained.
Yes, you can create as many watch folder connections as you want.
A local folder can only be part of one watch folder connection at a time. You can create watch folder connections in different workspaces from the same computer, but Air Lift will only actively track changes from the workspace to which you are currently logged in.
No, we don't delete any content from Air based on your deletions locally.
No, Air Lift only provides one-way syncing (from your computer to Air). Any changes made on Air in the browser by you or a team member won't affect any of the files on your computer.
Any time you save a file, that counts as a change. Renaming a file or moving it will also be detected by the app. When you delete a file locally (or move it out of the watch folder), Air will no longer track changes to that file, but it won't automatically be deleted from Air.
Files will sync automatically when you first create a watch folder connection. After that, you need to tell the app when to push changes up to Air. Open the app and make sure that no errors or alerts are waiting for your attention.
Yes, although it is not best practice to choose a folder that is already being synced with different software (an iCloud drive, for example) as changes might be made in that folder that are outside your control.
Right now, we are only offering a Mac-compatible app. If you or your team operates on Windows, let us know!
