How To Set Your User View Settings

  1. Login to your account.

  2. Click on your name located at the top right of the screen.
  3. Select Profile / Account on the drop down menu.
  4. Navigate to and click on User View Settings on the left.

In the User View Settings page you have several options available to customize your account.


Starting Page After Login- lets the user choose which tab will be open when logging in to acct.


Default View- allows user to choose how they view their folders.


Default Interface- allows the user to choose either our Classic look or the New Interface.
**Note: FilesAnywhere will is currently phasing out the Classic interface and will no longer be supported once that has been completed.**


File/Folder Default Sorting- allows the user to control how the folders are being sorted.


Folder Tree: Show GroupShare on Top- Lets the user choose which GroupShare folder is listed first under My Documents tab, also considered a "Home" folder.


Show Folder on Login- allows the user to control what folder displays first on login.


Show Empty Folder Icon- If checked, the (+) icon cannot be seen and allows the user to easily identify an empty folder.



View Type Settings- View type allows you to choose which display tabs the user is able to see/use.
*Note- this setting will add/remove the display tabs located at the top of the screen. If you remove a tab, you will not be able to utilize the tool or the Standard View shows all tabs by default.

Custom View- allows the user to choose how they view their home page by being able to choose what tabs are available.


Display Tabs:

Share- allows the user to be able to share data such as Send/Receive, GroupShare, Fax, and the ability to use service plugins. (By checking the Share tab, this will auto-enable the Tools tab as the service Plugins work as a sharing tool.)




eForms- allows your users to create surveys and forms, questionnaires and quizzes, design forms, collect/manage responses, and analyze the information all with the ability to send to anyone you choose!



Tools- allows the user to manage contacts, view/share reports, tools to organize the account, auto grouping, and a technical section that offers a Developer API Key sign up.




History- gives the user the ability to keep a log of all that is being shared. If you choose to remove this tab from your user, they will not have the tracking features for Fileshare™/FileRecieve links, Checkin/Checkout History, or currently checked out files.



**Keep in mind that if you have chosen not to give access to certain tabs, enabling specific features will automatically enable the tab it is associated with. For Example, if the Tools tab has been disabled and you choose to allow Service Plugins, the service plugins will auto-enable the Tools tab.**
