Copy documents in your Secured Folder

In an AODocs library, you can copy AODocs document with their properties, attachments, relations, description and permissions.

Note: Only the last version of a file is copied with its version name and description. The workflow state is reinitialized on the copy.

You can copy files if you are:

  • allowed to create a file in the document class
  • a reader or contributor on the document
  • a contributor on the parent folder if the permissions are inherited from folders
  • a contributor on the document class permissions

2. Press the More actions button and select Make a copy.


3. A pop-up opens. Select where you where you want to copy the file:

  • in My Drive
  • in the current folder

Note: If you don't have edit rights in the current folder, you can only copy a file to My Drive.

4. Press Copy. The copy will be named Copy of [filename].


- If you copy the document to your My Drive, the workflow state and properties of the current document aren't set on the copied file.

As a reader you can't copy a document if a library administrator has set Prevent viewers from downloading, copying and printing on the document in the AODocs interface.
