The Filemanager module allows users to manage files in the eGroupWare server (load, move, etc.). Files can also be shared with other users through ACLs (Access Control Lists).
The File Manager utility was originally developed by Jason Wies and Jonathon Sim for phpGroupWare. Pim Snel made the effort to integrate the File Manager into eGroupWare.
This module allows users to manage files in eGroupWare or on a WebDAV server and make them accessible to other users. It has the ability to perform the most common file actions which include:
- Creating directories
- Adding and editing text files
- Synchronizing with filing system
- Viewing file attributes
- Directory navigation
Comments can be added to both files and directories. The File Manager keeps a record of changes made to files thereby allowing basic verification of any changes made. Version control/recovery is not supported at this time.
At the moment sharing files is only supported through group ACL’s. This means that an administrator can create a group which includes all users who want to exchange files among each other. However, it can also be set up so as to allow access to other groups and even to individual users.
