Just like with Dropbox, now you can synchronize data from your local computer folders to the Alfresco Document Library. Work offline with the confidence that your work is echoed in the system.

The Alfresco Dropbox-Like Sync Feature Lite addon is an organization module focused on supporting productivity across the online and offline work environments. It offers instant gratification. Every time a file gets created, deleted, edited, or copied on your desktop, the same action happens on Alfresco. The files are mirror images and you can be sure every change is recorded. The reverse is also true—changes in your cloud-based folder will be reflected in the local folder.

This module helps to maintain an organized repository. Working files stay up-to-date even when you aren’t connected to the internet. As soon as you re-connect, you’re all synced-up.

What is Alfresco Dropbox-Like Sync Feature Lite?

The Alfresco Dropbox-Like Sync Feature Lite addon allows you to keep in sync with your company’s Alfresco and read or edit documents even when you are offline.

This module takes a popular file synchronization capability that internet users love for personal use and applies it to the workplace system.

Employees familiar with Dropbox love to have this feature at work because it is already incorporated in their typical computer use habits.

The Benefits of Alfresco Dropbox-Like Sync Feature Lite

Skytizens has developed Dropbox-Like Sync Feature Lite because of client demand. File sync has proven to be a wildly popular ability both in and out of the office. It makes accessibility and file organization a breeze. It saves time: In case of emergency if the internet goes down in your office, employees can continue projects without the risk of losing their work. When the internet is back up, Alfresco picks up right where it left off and all the work is transferred online. It also means that files from an employee’s local computer are available on mobile devices with internet capabilities.

How Does Alfresco Dropbox-Like Sync Feature Lite Work?

Skytizens provides the client company with an installer (executable file) for installing the Alfresco Dropbox-Like Feature Lite. After installation, the user inputs their Alfresco login credentials and designates which folder in Alfresco they would like to sync to the local folder. Finally, the user creates a folder on their local computer (i.e. a folder labeled “MyAlfresco”) to connect with.

Once this setup is complete, the two folders and all the files contained within them are synced. If the Alfresco file is already in use, the local folder will automatically populate.

From that point on, any changes made to the local folder on the user’s computer will be mirrored in Alfresco and vice versa. The types of changes that will be synced include editing files, rearranging files, creating or deleting files, copying files, and more.

In the case of an internet outage, users can continue to work in the local folder. All changes and edits made to the folder or files therein will be transferred to the Alfresco system at the instant that internet connectivity is re-established.

Main Features of Alfresco Dropbox-Like Sync Feature Lite

Setup – Users must first use the provided installer to set up a folder for syncing with Alfresco. One or more folders can be designated for syncing with the user’s local computer.

Supported Operating Systems – This Alfresco addon is available to 64 bit client Windows or Mac OS

Auto Synchronization – After the initial setup, syncing of the two folders is automatic. Users can set the frequency of their sync (e.g. every 10 seconds the two folders will update).

Permissions Control – Access to the Dropbox-Like Feature Lite is given to whoever executes the installer file on their local computer and completes the setup in Alfresco.
