What is the library homepage?

When you open a library in AODocs, the library homepage opens if you're in:

  • a Team Folder library or a Secured Folder library with more than one view
  • a Document Management library

- If you're in Team Folder or a Secured Folder with only one view, the library opens on the view.
- To navigate to the homepage of your library, press the library name in the breadcrumb in the library header.

The library homepage contains:
