Getting Starting with Workplace for Windows and Mac


Getting Starting with Workplace for Windows and Mac


Welcome to Workplace version 10 for Windows and Mac! This page is designed to explain the basics about our new, redesigned, and re-engineered version of Workplace. We'll also walk you through the basic functions available.

If you like, you can run Workplace v10 concurrently with Workplace v8.1 or later.

Features

Cloud Drive

Workplace v10 includes our new cloud drive feature, which transforms your cloud repository into a virtual local library, so you can enjoy full access to all of your Workplace files right on your PC. Make your files available offline by syncing them from the new file or folder right-click menu in the main v10 interface or in your Workplace Folder. The right-click menus also allow you to quickly and easily perform common functions like sharing with your team, creating and managing public shares, file locking, and marking items as favorites.

Configurable Workplace Folder Drive Letter

You can now control the drive letter for your Workplace Folder. This provides a more familiar experience if you're accustomed to using mapped drives to network shares. It's also a more elegant solution if you use absolute links to documents.

New Interface

A sleek, intuitive UI makes is easy to locate what you and your team have worked on recently. Favorites and locked files each have their own display as well. The new search feature makes finding specific files and folders simple, and information and common functions are readily accessible:
