Update your desktop client and mobile app now to experience an even better file sharing and collaboration experience
Since the start, giving you the most simple, secure and smart file sharing experience has been the driving force behind OpenText Core. The team has worked hard to make sure that this latest release hits all three parts of the equation. We know you’ll love this feature-packed version of your favorite cloud-based collaboration and file sharing app, so be sure to update your desktop client and your mobile app today to find out why!
How This Release Makes Things More Simple
As always, the team takes feedback from the Community Forum, Twitter, and other social channels to make sure that you spend less time setting things up and organizing your file shares and more time getting things done. After all, the easier it is to find what you’re looking for, share what you need with who you need to collaborate with, and work with the information you need to get the project finished, the more time you will have for other stuff – like sitting back, relaxing, and watching the game with the team as a reward for a job well done!
In the latest release of OpenText Core, the team has delivered several “tweaks to the system” so that you can better organize, visualize and locate your files. Check out the thumbnail view (perfect for picture-heavy folders), the file-sorting filters and a host of other small, but great, mods to the interface.
Why is it More Secure, You Ask?
Fantastic news for anyone looking to bolster security and protect their important stuff: OpenText Core now features two-factor authentication, aka 2FA. If you have a Personal Tier account, you can “self-enable” 2FA and use popular two-step authenticators, such as Google Authenticator, and if you are the admin of a Business or Enterprise Tier account, you can enable 2FA for all your users with support for Duo, TOTP, and more!
Let’s check it out with a quick walkthrough:
How About, What Makes it Smarter?
The Desktop Sync feature we launched a while back gave you the option to use the Edit button from the Files List to make changes to your documents and have them instantly saved, or to sync files between your Files List and your devices. We just made it a whole lot better with True Selective Sync. Lots of file sharing and collaboration apps offer “selective synchronization” but it limits you to selecting everything or choosing what folders to sync.
The beauty of True Selective Sync in OpenText Core is that you can choose exactly what you want synchronized between your desktop and the cloud. You can select everything, folders, specific files within folders, or even just a handful of individual documents or a folder of your pics to keep up to date on your desktop and devices.
Here’s a look at True Selective Sync in action:
We’ll post more “deep dives” in the coming days on these great new features. In the meantime, let us know if you have any questions.
