Deploy the UFO client on your domain

The Universal File Opener (UFO) is a Google Chrome extension. It enhances the Google Drive and AODocs experience by allowing you to:

  • open non-Google files locally on your computer using the corresponding software
  • save the changes you made locally back to Google Drive or AODocs

For users to fully benefit from these features, as a domain administrator you need to:

  1. Deploy the UFO client on your domain.
