Workflow Automation

FileCloud's Workflow Automation functionality, available in the user portal, enables an end user to automate the steps in a business process. For example, the creation of a purchase order file could trigger a process that moves it to each approval department where it waits for an authorization that triggers its move to the next approval department, and once all approvals are met, additional actions could be added.

All of this is completed in a simple drag and drop interface where variables such as email addresses and folder names are easily filled in for each action.


MS Teams Integration

With FileCloud's MS Team integration, you can access your content and folder in FileCloud while you're working in MS Teams.

See xxxxx

ITAR Compliance Overview

The ITAR Compliance Overview is a tool that measures how ITAR compliant you are and shows you what you can do to become more compliant with each rule. The tool examines your settings for DLP rules, metadata sets and encryption and uses them to determine whether or not you meet specific regulations. If not, each listing tells you which setting to change, and some even let you make choices directly on the page.

Desktop Edit

FileCloud's Desktop Edit client is a standalone app that enables you to edit files stored in FileCloud in the native applications without entering the FileCloud user portal.
