  • Hi Karen,

    These short demo videos are great... BUT

    They file format cannot be viewed inside CORE. Having to download, then launch in a local app doesn't line up with CORE being a SaaS solution.

    If there is a video format that is compatible with the web app, please convert them and update. Or link to a Youtube video or something. 

    Thank you
  • Thanks Chris!

    After some testing, it appears that pptx, pdf, and docx file types preview successfully on a public link.  However, the .mp4 and .mov files only preview when logged in, not in a public link.

    I have submitted this to our development team.  Thanks for the suggestion.

  • I watched the video on Installing the Desktop Client, but when I logon I don't see it listed as one of my files.  Is that supposed to be a shared file across all Core users that should show up if I view All Files?
  • Hi Bill,

    I apologize that our team has not responded to you in a timely fashion.

    The How To videos are public links, so will not be included in your "Shared With Me" listing when you log in to OpenText Core.

    Hope that helps,

  • Hi Karen,

    It's been a while .... I created an account to see the Enterprise World material, then the notifications started to come in the e-mail.  I went to my profile to turn notifications off (and I think I was successful) however I could not navigate to the notification settings as the help instruction appeared to show me.

    Can you give me the quick 'how to'?

  • Hi Phil!

    To adjust your notifications settings:

    - Head to your Profile (click on the profile circle) and a menu of options will drop down.
    - Go to Settings
    - Your notification preferences will appear

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi, 

    I was surprised that for any content I was looking for, I had to download files, of view PDFs. 
    Where is the online help?

  • There is a YouTube Channel at if that helps. There is also the support email at and a Twitter account @OpenTextCore.

    Hope this is helpful.
