The User Dashboard is where you can see a document preview. 

How Do I Access the User Dashboard?


You can quickly see if a file is the one you want before opening it for editing.

If you do not see the Preview button on your dashboard, contact your Administrator.

If you are an administrator, enable Document Preview.


1.    After selecting a file in the User Portal, a Preview button is available.

2.     After clicking the Preview button, a separate window opens showing an image of the file.

This preview image cannot be edited.

For everything besides the DICOM files, FileCloud Server uses LibreOffice to do the document conversion so that you can see the preview.

 How can I use the DICOM images in preview?

You can store, view and share medical files such as X-rays, CT scans, Ultrasounds and MRIs securely in FileCloud Server.

  • In the dashboard, you can select a file with the .DICOM extension, and then click the Preview button.
