KM document editing

Hi,

In EP, when I right click on a document (stored in KM repository) and go to "Edit locally", the document gets checked-in. I would like to know whether I am editing the document in the KM repository itself or the document gets to my desktop and then when I save it and check-out, it gets back to the KM repository.

Thanks,

Mandar

    Just read about it, the document gets saved in a temporary folder on the local hard disk. Can anyone let me know the exact path to this temporary folder?

    Thanks,

    Mandar

    If you use local editing, the file should be stored in a dedicated local temp directory (containing e.g. the portal ID in the path). There might be another link to it in the standard "recent" history of Office, as you describe it, but this is not the actual storage place. You would have to follow that link to find it.

    When you upload the file with the Checkin-functionality (directly after local editing or any time later through the file's details), the file should be deleted from your PC (it won't be deleted, however, if you just use the normal "Upload" function after locating it yourself). So while you might still have a link in the "recent" history, it will probably point to a no longer existing document.
