Working with files
Locally downloaded files are stored in a folder "Downloaded", located in the folder where the program is installed.
User is able to see downloading status (during the process) in the comments feed with the help of downloading indicator.
Files changed on server are marked with red. When you open such file, a warning and offer to replace this file with local one, will appear.
With the help of the context menu in the comments feed you can perform the following actions: "Open File" - this option is available when the file is loaded locally and exists on the disk physically. This option opens the file in appropriate editor.
If program does not recognize the format, it will display a window where you can select the program, which should open the file. For that you need to click on the file inside the comment.
If the option "Display image gallery in the task feed" is enabled (in the settings of Prostoy Agent), images (if there is more then one image) will be displayed in separate window, where you can see all images and easily switch between files.
"Download and open" - this option is available when the file is not loaded locally and does not exist on the disk physically. This function allows to download the file to the folder "Downloaded" and open it.
"Synchronize" (check for updates) - checks if the file were changed on the server and differs from the locally stored file. If there is no changes in files stored on server and files stored locally, user will receive an appropriate message.
When file stored on the server is changed, but local file stays the same - user receives an offer to download updated file from the server. When locally stored file is changed but file on the server stays the same, user receives an offer to download updated file to the server.
If both files are changed, user is able to choose, whether to download file from the computer or download it from the server (if user selects to download file from the server, file will be stored as separate local file).
"Replace the file" - replaces file stored on the server with new locally stored file. Other users see such file in their comment feed as file marked in red. Red color indicates changes in files stored on server. When you replace file, you are able to see downloading status (during the process) with the help of downloading indicator.
"Save as ..." - opens "Save File" dialog box. From there you can specify folder (and change the name of the file), and download file to the selected folder (if the file has not been downloaded to this folder previously). If the file has been downloaded to the local folder previously, the file is moved from a local folder.
"Save all files" - this option is available when the comment contains multiple files. Option saves all the files attached to this comment.
"Open Folder" - opens the folder "Downloaded", in which downloaded files are stored;
"Open a file on the server" - runs the browser and opens the file using an appropriate link.
"Properties" - opens the window with the properties of the file, including its name, link to it, file size, creating date, and its extension (see the figure below).
"Open" button has the same function with the "Open file" option. To open "Downloaded" folder (or folder where the file is stored) click "Go" option. Under the "History" tab you can find list of the file uploads in chronological order. Sender's name, date of downloading and file size are specified.
"Copy link" - copies the link to the clipboard. Link allows to download file to the server.
