The File Browser is similar to Windows Explorer or Mac OSX Finder with the only difference being that the files being worked on are remote and stored in the filecloud server and not stored in the local disk.

Starting with FileCloud 17.0, the outlook add-in contains a remote file browser function to access, edit and view all files on the server. This is an alternative to the web browser to access FileCloud. To open the File Browser, you will open the Outlook compose window and click the File Browser button.
The File Browser user interface opens:


You can navigate to different locations in the remote FileCloud server by different methods.

  1. Using the left hand side folder tree to navigate to different folders
  2. By double-clicking folders on the right hand side folder listing
