You can use the Documents application of conjectPM either with a Web Browser or with a WebFolders. To ensure full functionality of conjectPM, we recommend working with a web browser.
Using the WebFolders, you can work via the local file management system (e.g. Windows Explorer) in your project. Thus you can quickly and easily upload, copy, move, download and edit folders and documents.
The system requirements for WebFolders can be found in our Tutorial System Configuration.
- To connect for the first time, click on "Open projects in Explorer" on the start page of the platform.
- Now connect the network drive according to the instructions for your operating system..
- After the successful connection, you will see your projects as Web folders in Windows Explorer. The connection is independent of the login in the browser and remains even after logging out of conjectPM in the browser.
- Now you can as you are used to it from Windows, create, copy, move or download documents and folders (in most cases only admins can edit folders).
|Note: By now you will find your WebFolder in the Windows Explorer depending on your Windows version at "My network places", "Web-Folders" or "as a new drive/device". In Mac OSX the WebFolder "DAV" is shown on the desktop.
Please note that this functionality is a BETA-Version. The WebDav protocol is operated by Windows and proper working with WebFolders depends on several factors like operating system, updates, MS Office version. Therefore we cannot ensure that WebFolder work correctly for all users.
As far as mandatory categories are used in your project you cannot use WebFolders to upload files, as WebFolders has no function to set the categories. Therefore you have to deactivate the mandatory option for your categories as long as you work with WebFolders.
