FolderSync is an application that installs on a user workstation and runs in the background and offers the user two different benefits:
- The ability to use "Open Local" from the WebApp to open a document using their locally installed applications (Word, Powerpoint, etc...) where any saves of that document will be automatically and transparently saved back to FolderGrid. This is a huge time saver versus the default where the user needs to download the doc, open it, save changes, then re-upload the new version.
- Optionally FolderSync can also be used to keep a local copy of one or more folders on the user workstation and keep it in sync with the remote folder on FolderGrid. This is useful for folks who want to continue to work on a set of documents offline and then have those changes sync up to FolderGrid when they are back online.
