You can upload files, create, copy, move or delete them in your storage folder. Additionally you can zip or unzip files. All these actions can be performed with single files and folders or with several ones at once.
The personal folder is WebDAV compatible, i.e. folders in OpenOLAT act as a regular network drive. Therefore it is very easy to copy, move or delete files. For more information please go to " Using WebDAV".
context help: meta data
Each file can be provided with metadata. These data are based on the Dublin Core Simple Standard. For further information please go to: Dublin Simple Core.
Metadata additionally describe a file, e.g. its title, author or publisher. They serve as a means to clarify a document's purpose and are particularly suitable for file names that would otherwise be too long or for document titles containing special characters.
Metadata are optional. However, several meta data cannot be modified: name of person who has uploaded a certain document, size of document, file type, and time of document upload.
Metadata are indexed by the full-text search. Therefore you can search for metadata by means of keywords when trying to find relevant documents.
Locked: Here you can decide if you want to lock this file. Other users will then no longer be able to overwrite, delete or move it. This option is not available for folders.
