Copy files in your Secured Folder

In an AODocs library, it is possible to copy a file with its properties, attachments, relations, description and permissions.

Note: Only the last version of a file is copied with the same 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 file
  • a contributor on the parent folder if the permissions are inherited from folders
  • a contributor on the file class permissions

To copy a file in a Secured Folder library, hover your cursor over the file you want to copy, click the “More actions” button (1) and click “Make a copy” (2).

Copying a file in Secured Folders library

A pop-up appears asking you where you want to copy the file (3):

  • 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.

You can then launch the copy of the file by clicking "Copy" (4). The copy will be named "Copy of [filename]".

Validating the copy of a file

Note: Workflow state and properties of the current file are not set on the copied file.

As a reader you can't copy a file if the parameter "Prevent viewers from downloading, copying and printing" was set on the file from the AODocs interface.
