You have commented and we are listening!  Onware is delighted to announce enhancements to File List uploading, Access and Watching!

Uploading

In version 8.18.1, all project participants can upload documents into the File List.

Watching

Based on customer feedback, we have included the functionality to watch a folder.  Previously project participants were only able to watch a file or multiple files. When a project participant is set to watch a folder, they will be notified, via e-mail, when a change occurs in the folder. With the folder selected, choose “Watch this folder”.  Once selected, your name will appear in the list of People Watching, 2015-11-20_15-06-59 Click here to learn more about version 8.18.1.
