Working with Files

How do I edit files?

To edit a file on your Mac or Windows system, simply click on the “Actions” button next to the file in the “Files List” then choose “Edit” from the top menu or click the file to open it in the viewer, then click the “More” button (“ooo”) and select “Edit.” The file will open in the application associated with the file format (for example, Microsoft Word for a .docx file type). Any changes you make to a file will be instantly saved to OpenText Core when you save and close the application you are editing the file with.


Note: The first time you edit a file, you will be prompted to download the OpenText Core desktop application. Simply select either the Mac or Windows version and follow the prompts. If there are updates to the desktop application, you will receive a notification letting you know it’s ready to download.

Can I save files to OpenText Core directly from Microsoft Office?

Yes. The OpenText Core add-on for Microsoft Office is automatically installed with the Web Edit Client. The Office add-on (appears as a tab in your Office menu bar) lets you open files from OpenText Core as well as save files you are working on to your Files List.(Note: Currently, only a Windows version of the Office add-on is available.)

What is the “Web Edit Client” and how do I get it?

The first time you edit a file on your desktop a file from OpenText Core, you’ll need to install the desktop app (options for both Mac Mountain Lion and higher and Windows 7 and higher are available). The desktop app, also known as the Web Edit Client, detects the native applications on your system so you can open files for editing and then instantly save them back to OpenText Core. The desktop app also provides you with notifications about your file activity and alerts for when others invite you to share their files and folders.

Can I access OpenText Core from my mobile device?

Yes. There are apps for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android devices available on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.

How do I sync files between my devices/computers?

Why wait for files to sync when you can edit them and save them instantly to the OpenText Cloud? Edit is the New Sync. Eliminate duplicate copies and “version confusion” when collaborating by instantly editing and saving changes to OpenText Core.


Is there an OpenText Core mobile app?

Yes. You can get the mobile OpenText Core application on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store.

Can I log in to a different OpenText Core account on my devices?

Yes. For example, if you need to log in to your personal OpenText Core account at the same time as your business account, you can log in to one account on your tablet and another on your phone or desktop.

Can I edit files on my phone or tablet?

Yes. If you view a file in the OpenText Core app and tap More (“ooo”), “Open in” will let you choose any app on your device capable of opening the file for editing. You can save back to OpenText Core by choosing “Open in” from the app you are using to edit the file and choosing Core.(Note: Please ensure that when saving back to Core that the file name is exactly the same. It is likely that the app you are using to edit the file will alter the file name or add characters.)

I’ve changed the number of users, how am I charged?

When you add users, you are charged a prorated amount for these new users for the remainder of the current billing period immediately. Your next monthly bill will reflect the new total amount of users.


When you remove users, a prorated credit is applied to your account. The credit will be applied to your next monthly bill. If your credit exceeds the amount of your next monthly bill the remainder will be applied to future monthly bills until the credit is zero.


When adding or removing users, you are immediately sent an invoice outlining the billing change and your user limit takes effect right away.
