File Sync
Configuring the domain-wide file sync settings

Overview

MangoApps allows your users to sync their MangoApps cloud files and folders using the Windows & Mac desktop applications to their local machines.
MangoApps File Sync is a productivity tool that allows users to mirror data stored on MangoApps to their desktop machines. They can then navigate and modify content stored on the MangoApps domain through their computer’s native file browsing interface, without using a web browser. Content that syncs down to their computer is available for offline access. If they make changes to the synced files locally, these changes are automatically synced back up to their MangoApps account, providing universal access to their files via web, their computer or their mobile devices.
Network admins can enable the file sync feature and limit the number of computers users can sync their files to.

FAQs

Can users sync files that are attached from external repositories?

Files attached from external document repositories such as SharePoint, Office 365, Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, OneDrive, Windows File Server, etc. are not included in the sync, because they do not reside in MangoApps.

To see how these configurations impact the Files on the User Portal, see Files in the User Portal Guide.
