When enabled, My Files allows users to upload their own files, which they can share and add to collections. Using this feature toggle, you can enable or disable My Files for your entire organization, or select certain groups you'd like to grant access.
- To enable My Files for all users, toggle the User Content feature on. By default, My Files is enabled for all users.
- Click the carrot drop down in the User Content section to open the user access options.
- Check the user groups that you want to have My Files enabled for. If you have a large number of groups, you can use the search functionality to quickly find what you're looking for.
- Once you've selected the groups which you want the feature enabled for, click Apply.
- You will receive a warning message to ensure you're aware that any group you disable My Files for will lose any content they've already uploaded. Their My Files content will be deleted from collections and shares, and they will no longer have access to the Microsoft Office integration. Check the boxes signifying you understand the impact, then click Disable.
- To allow users to edit Microsoft Office documents and store them in My Files, you will need to enable the Microsoft Office personalization feature(s). The Microsoft Office Personalization refers to native Microsoft Office on a Windows device. The Office Online Personalization allows users on Office 365 to edit documents and store the modified versions in their My Files.
- Toggling these features on only enables the feature itself. You will still need to mark individual assets as Can be personalized in order for users to have permission to edit the assets and store those versions in their My Files.
Note: To simplify your process, we suggest creating a new user group and adding all users you'd like to enable My Files for. If a user is in multiple groups, of which some but not all have My Files enabled, they will have access to My Files.
Similarly to My Files, you can enable and disable Asset commenting for the entire organization, or certain groups. Allowing asset commenting means users can post comments on files, and as an admin, you have to option to respond to comments or remove them if necessary.
- To enable Asset Commenting for all users, toggle the feature on. By default, it is enabled for all users.
- Click the carrot drop down in the Asset Commenting section to open the user access options.
- Check the user groups that you want to have commenting enabled for. If you have a large number of groups, you can use the search functionality to quickly find what you're looking for.
- Once you've selected the groups which you want the feature enabled for, click Apply. Access to asset commenting to all unchecked groups will be disabled.
