The following information is taken from a Filr help page.


Novell Filr lets you work with files in important ways:

Access: Access the files you need in multiple ways, including from a web browser, from your desktop, or from a mobile device.

For more information, see Section 1.2, Accessing Novell Filr.

Share: Share files with your co-workers and grant them specific rights to the files. For example, you can share a file and give User A Read-Only access, then share the same file and give User B Edit access.

You can easily see what has been shared with you and what you have shared.

For more information, see Section 3.0, Sharing Files and Folders.

Collaborate: Make comments on a file. All users with access can see your comments and make comments of their own.

For more information, see Section 6.2, Commenting on a File.

 

Filr allows you to access, share, and collaborate on two key types of files:

Net Folders

Novell Filr gives you easy access to folders and files on your corporate file system. Corporate files can be files on your home directory, files on a mapped drive, or files on a remote server. Filr gives you seamless access to these files, regardless of their location.

In Filr, you access these corporate files by clicking Net Folders in the masthead. Or for files in your Home directory, you access them by clicking My Files. For more information about Net Folders, see Section 2.3, Accessing Files and Folders in the Corporate File System (Net Folders).

My Files

The My Files area can contain personal storage files (files that you upload directly to the Filr site) and files from your Home directory.

You can upload files directly to the Filr site for your personal use or to promote collaboration. You can create folders to better organize your files. For more information about how to upload files, see Section 4.8, Adding Files to a Folder. For more information about how to create a folder, see Section 4.1, Creating a New Folder.

Files and folders that are located in your My Files area are visible only to you by default. You can make files and folders available to others by sharing them, as described in Section 3.0, Sharing Files and Folders.
