How do I manage my connected folders?

As you share connected folders with your clients, you can view and manage them from within the Connected Folders management screen.

This guide will go through:

Accessing the Connect Management Screen

To access all connected folders for your site:

  1. In SuiteFiles Web, click More and select Connected Folders
  2. A list of all Connected Folders that you have shared with your clients will be displayed
  3. Click the three dots to the right of the Folder Name, where you can View Connected Folder, view the Folder Settings, Rename or Delete the Connected Folder
  4. Expiry dates can be amended under Folder Settings
  5. On the left, you can navigate to view Recent activity or your Connect users list.

Folder Settings

To access the settings of any connected folder, simply click on the three dots next to the folder name and select 'Folder Settings'. Through this, you can alter the expiry date, add and remove users, or check for recent activity in the connected folder.  


Deleting Portals

You can delete a connected folder by clicking on the three dots and selecting 'Delete Connected Folder'. Please note, this will not delete the folder from SuiteFiles, only the portal that connects the client to the folder. At any time, you can also recreate the connected folder.

Expired Portals

You can check which connected folders are currently active and expired in the folders list. Expired portals will be greyed out as seen in the image below.

To reactivate an expired portal, you can extend the expiry date through the folder settings
