The purpose of FileCloud Server is to provide enterprises with a file storage and sync solution.
- Since documents are at the core of this solution, providing as many tools as you can to your users to interact with files on a daily basis is critical
- Besides installing additional tools, there are built-in options that you can simply enable to provide a better experience for users when working with documents
- Once users start working with documents, you can manage file extensions and file change notifications to help users manage their document processes
