Documents need to be edited from outside the ECM platform. You have to download them an edit them with the native application which was used to created the document or a compatible tool.
Users can also install the plugin Drive. Drive is a plug-in that synchronizes workspaces and folders in Athento ECM to your local workstation.
By using Drive, you can work with your documents as you normally do, on your own computer, creating new documents or editing ones that already exist. All you have to do is activate the synchronization of the workspace (or the folder) that you want in Athento ECM, go to the Drive folder on your computer, and start working with synced files!
After installing a light client on the desktop, Drive establishes a secure connection to the Nuxeo repository and updates content when a change is detected, either locally or on the server. Highly customizable, the platform allows you to the define content, metadata and workflows that naturally follow your business processes. Drive handles all types of content, from simple files such as documents or images to complex application output in a hierarchical folder structure. It works in your local applications, while automating updates in the background. Secure conflict resolution ensures that collaborative projects stay up-to-date in the content repository.
