Navigating the WebUI

Navigating through folders in Cloud-Sync is as simple as clicking on a folder to open it and using the back button on your browser to move to a previous level.

Create and Upload Files and Directories

At the top of the Files view is a navigation bar. This contains links to uploading new files, and creating new files and folders.

The New file/folder/upload menu.

To upload or create new files or folders directly in a folder click on the New button in the navigation bar (this is the + button). There, as in the image above, you can see links to:

  • Upload a new file: This uploads files from your computer into the folder. You can also upload files by dragging and dropping them from your file manager.

  • Create a new text file: This creates a new text file and adds the file to your current folder.

  • Create a new folder: This creates a new folder in the current folder.

  • Create a new office document: This creates a new .docx file in the current folder.

  • Create a new spreadsheet: This creates a new .xlsx file in the current folder.

  • Create a new presentation: This creates a new .pptx file in the current folder.

Select Files or Folders

You can select one or more files or folders by hovering over them (as in the image below) and clicking on their checkboxes. To select all files in the current directory, click on the checkbox located at the top of the files listing.

When you select multiple files, you can delete all of them, or download them as a ZIP file by using the Delete or Download buttons that appear at the top.

If the Download button is not visible, the administrator has disabled this feature.
