FileSphere Familiar interface

Familiar Interface

There is no new interface to learn; FileSphere is seamlessly integrated into the Windows operating system, Windows Explorer, Microsoft Office applications (FileSphere Ribbon) and Microsoft Outlook. Through its support for Windows Open, Save and Search functionality, FileSphere is available within any application.

Different file type icons including document, music, spreadsheet, film file and image

Any Digital File Type

All commonly used file types, including document, text, image, email, spreadsheet, presentation, Adobe application files, and multimedia files are supported. FileSphere maintains all files in their native format, automatically captures native metadata and enables files to be opened by the relevant application.

Version Management

Version Management

Version management is inherent in FileSphere. All file versions are controlled automatically, with versioning performed when files are opened for editing (checked out) and returned (checked in). Multiple versions of any file are stored within a single file view, allowing easy access to and management of previous versions.

Simple Classification

Easy Retrieval

Multi-dimensional metadata tags enhance Windows Search functionality, power the predictive prompts in the built-in FileSphere Retrieval Bar and generate dynamic views of files to help you find files quickly and easily using whichever method suits you best.

Tag

Simple Tagging

Simple drag & drop classification enables files to inherit tags as you move them into View folders or you can add tags in the file's properties window using the predictive prompts to narrow tag selection. Tagging, based on the files native metadata such as title, subject and author, occurs automatically.

Dynamic Folders

Dynamic Folders

View folders are dynamic virtual folders that allow you to organise, reorganise and view files according to the way in which you work, providing you with a personalised view and easy targeted access to single files within a large number of files.


Document Retention

In line with your document retention policy you can set an expiry date for any file. Expired files are automatically removed to the administration section where they can be archived or permanently removed.
