25    
26    
27     Basic operations are:
28     * sending of file to server (by choosing UPLOAD link on bottom area)
29 dpavlin 1.2 and retriving of file for viewing (by clicking of filename).
30 dpavlin 1.1 - send file to server:
31     Choose upload button to get to screen which is used
32     to upload documents to server.
33     Press BROWSE and select file from file requestor
34     which will be displayed on screen.
35     After that press UPLOAD and you will be returned to
36     previous screen, but it will now display newly uploaded file.
37     If you wish to abort sending of file to server choose CANCEL.
38    
39     - retrieve file from server:
40     simply click on filename. File will be downloaded to disk
41     or opened in application depending on file type. However,
42     after changing of file that file WILL NOT be updated
43 dpavlin 1.2 on server automatically.
44 dpavlin 1.1
45 dpavlin 1.2 - updating copy of file on server
46     To update file on server (and enable other users to see
47     changes in file) you will have to:
48     1. save file locally to disk (check-out file from
49     server) -- that is achieved using check-out
50     icon which is right from filename)
51     2. once you checkouted file, icon will change to
52     finger to warn you that you have to return
53     new copy of that file to server.
54     3. edit file locally on computer and save it to
55     local disk
56     4. send it to server again (using link on filename
57     or icon on the right of filename)
58    
59     You can also upload file under different name if you want
60     to keep old copy for some reason. However, for evoluating
61     files, system will keep last five copies of files
62     automatically.
63     - adding note to each file (which will describe file better than
64     filename alone)
65 dpavlin 1.1
66     Additional operations available are:
67     * Detailed informations about file (which can be showed by clicking on
68     icon which is displayed left from filename).
69     - filename
70     - file size
71     - date and time of last modification and access
72     - document contents (which you can edit) -- only if document type
73     is plain text. If file is Word Document of some other binary
74     format you will have to edit it on your local computer and
75     upload changed file back to server.
76 dpavlin 1.2 If the document is picute, if will be shown.
77     - removing lock on file -- this option is fail-safe only. It's not
78     planned that users will remove locks manually. Locks are used
79     when one user check-out file to edit it. Other users can't
80     view or edit same file until that user return updated copy
81     (check-in) to server. However, it's possible that some users
82     will check-out file by mistake (instead of just viewing it),
83     so this option can be used to unlock file again.
84 dpavlin 1.1 - deleting of file (by choosing of a checkbox located left
85     from button DELETE and pressing DELETE)
86     - renaming of file (by changing of name, choosing of checkbox
87     and pressing of RENAME)
88     - changes to file with dates, time and user which made the change
89 dpavlin 1.2 For last five uploads, you will be able to retrieve old version
90     of documents from this list also.
91 dpavlin 1.1
