Admin UI Updated with Intuitive Look and Feel
Since the 22.1 version of FileCloud was released (November 2022), the Team Folders admin UI has been updated for a more streamlined and intuitive experience, mirroring the front-end UI that appears in the user portal. This change follows a pattern of similar changes updating elements of the Admin UI to improve ease-of-use and functionality.
These updates have improved the visual and user experience for the main dashboard, the users and groups management tab, and governance features. Now, all UI elements in the admin portal have been updated.
FileCloud Admin UI Update Streamlines Team Folders
The update to the admin UI in FileCloud resulted in minor changes, designed to refresh the overall look while maintaining the same functionality and behavior. Other changes involved entirely restructuring and redesigning existing elements. The Team Folders tab in the admin portal is a prime example – this UI has been simplified so it is more intuitive and appealing to use.
Below, you can see the optimized Team Folders tab in the admin portal, which mirrors that of the user portal, creating a streamlined UI between the two.
Basic Team Folder Operations
The basic operations to create a “New Folder,” “Upload Folder,” and “Upload File” are now available from the blue drop-down button on the top right corner.
Actions like “Delete,” “Copy,” and “Move” are available now in the “more options” (three-dot) button on the top right:
Team Folder Actions
With the admin UI upgrade, Team Folder actions are not only limited to the “more options” menu on the top right. When you mouse over elements in the folder/file list, an action toolbar appears to make these options easily accessible.
Actions for Team Folders will appear when you mouse over a Team Folder. Actions include:
New Share Window
Sharing a Team Folder from the admin UI has also been updated to use the same sharing look and feel from the front-end UI:
Sharing a Team Folder from the admin portal is easier than ever with the updated UI available with the 22.1 release.
Before this update, the Delete and Manage options would only show when you clicked on the “Misc” button; now, they show directly in the Sharing Permissions.
Manage Folder Security
Folder Permissions was the last element of the new UI to be updated. Although the change was minimal, the look and feel have been updated to match the rest of the user interface.
Below, you can see the changes with the new UI after the 22.1 release:
