Is there a way to bulk download attachments of completed work?

I have commissioned book illustrations and there are around 40 downloads. Is there a way to do this all at once? It is very time consuming to be downloading them individually

The best way might be to just have them share a Dropbox folder, honestly.

Jade:

Upwork is NOT a file transfer tool. It has never claimed to be.

 

As a professional, you will be very familiar with and use actual file transfer tools, because you know it will make things easier, save time, and you also know that sending files through Upwork can damage them.

 

You will use your favorite options among such tools as:

Dropbox

email

FTP

WeTransfer

Google Drive

Microsoft One Drive

USB thumb drive

Skype

FilePizza

[etc.]

Call me old-fashioned, but FTP is still one of my favorite ways to get files to clients who aren't on Upwork.

 

Setting up your own server might not be the most user friendly thing in the world, but if you give them their own folder and account, you then know exactly when they finish downloading each file. So if there's ever claim they didn't get their files, I can simply say "they were downloaded at this time, by this IP, and you're the only one with the login information." Never had it come up, but better to have logs and not need them =)
