The new activity stream feature provides a single, easy to view place to review every action taken on your files and folders in FileCloud. Any action such as adding a new presentation, updating a spread sheet, removing a document, sharing a document with your team, downloading an image will be tracked. As part of the tracking, you will see a continuous stream of actions that have taken place on your files and folders. The actions are grouped and presented to you in a daily, weekly and monthly timeline.

Comments and Notes

To enhance the powerful feature of the activity stream, FileCloud 8.0 supports adding and deleting comments on an individual File or Folder.  This awesome feature aids collaboration and takes the team communication to the next level. For example, a project leader can add a comment on a file that was sent for review. The comments section of the activity for each file or folder, will display who commented what and when.

Document Editing Support

Want to speed up the process of updating a document in the cloud? FileCloud 8.0 supports the Quick Edit feature on a Word document, Excel Spread sheet or Power point presentation. You no longer have to download, open, edit, save and upload the saved version back to the cloud. The quick edit feature allows you to select a document from the FileCloud Web User Interface, open, edit and save the document as a new version without the need to actually download and upload the file to the FileCloud server. This is a great time saving feature that will improve productivity.

Embedded Uploading

Do you want employees, clients or vendors to upload files to FileCloud from your website without going to FileCloud? Embedded Uploading is the answer. Starting with FileCloud 8.0, it is possible to create a file upload form that can be placed on your existing website so that when users upload files they get uploaded to a specific file cloud folder without the need for a user name or password. This is similar to having a simple “File Drop box” allowing your employees, clients, or vendors to send files to you quickly and easily.
