Say hello to FileSync in IBM Connections 4.5 CR4

IBM Connections 4.5 CR4 was released and brought some really nice new functions which can be found here.

One thing which was added but is not mentioned on this page is the FileSync functionality (have no clue why).

FileSync was available on the SmartCloud for months and gives you the possibilty to automatically sync files to your mobile device, see following images to see how it looks like:

0_myfiles
1_take_offline

2_notification

3_sync

 

4_download

5_info

 

If you want to know how to enable this feature in CR4 go to this site on the Connections Wiki: Configuring File Sync for mobile

Btw, already implemented it in my production environment, works like a charm 🙂

PS. If you want to see more on FileSync visit Luis Benitez’s blog: http://www.lbenitez.com/2014/04/introducing-file-sync-for-mobile-and.html

We don’t have IBM Docs. What is the best way to round trip edit the files from mobile. We want an “upload to Connections” features in the editor that will put it back where it came from and not rename with -1 on the second download.
