Easy DMS public root foler vs. private folder

Hi All,

I just installed the Easy DMS software on my PC and was able to log into SAP via Easy DMS. However had a few doubts that I needed to clear:

1. Does the EDIPUBLICROOTFOLDER document get created for every user who uses Easy DMS for the first time?

2. There were two folders create Public root folder and Private root folder. Can someone elaborate how these two differ and and be used.

Thanks,

Sarita

    Hi Sarita

    For every user, root folder would be created when he / she logs in first time.. A pop up opens asking whther folder should be created and by default a folder would be created with 'FOL' doc type and the user name as Folder name..

    If u check in R/3 u can see a Document Structure created with your name and FOL as Doc type..

    Private folders / Public folders in Easy DMS are similar to your desktop folders / Share folders in Microsoft Windows respectively..

    Regards

    Hi,

    1. Does the EDIPUBLICROOTFOLDER document get created for every user who uses Easy DMS for the first time?

    Yes, only for the first time

    2. There were two folders create Public root folder and Private root folder. Can someone elaborate how these two differ and and be used.

    The personal folder contains your local documents which are not accessible by any other user and the public folder contains all documents that are also available to all other users.

    Thank You,

      Hi Aby

      You are correct. though the the document is in private folder of one user, it can be accessed by the other user using the dir number and document type. I had checked it.

      Thanks
