Archive your office files

This lesson shows how to use Storga to file and save your office documents.

Storing an office file in Storga

1. Switch to edit mode if necessary:

2. Possibly position the cursor on the Storga block under which you want to archive the file.

3. In the toolbox, click on the file icon:

4. Drag the file from your OS's file manager to the 'Drag file here' box in the context menu that appeared on top of your screen.

The file block is displayed on the page, with the ✇ symbol at the top.

Note: if your file is a photo, or an email, and you left the 'Use the specific Storga block for photos and emails' field to 'yes', then the Storga block created is not a file block

Edit a file stored in Storga

If you are using the native Storga client

Click the file name to open it in the associated application.
Make the changes.
Save the modified version, still in the associated application.
The version in Storga should update automatically.

Attention: In order for the automatic version update in Storga to take place, you must keep the Storga client application open.

Check: to check that everything went well, you can open the file again.

If you access Storga from a simple web browser

Click the file name to open it in the associated application.
Make the changes.
Save the modified version, still in the associated application, but on the desk.
In Storga, in edit mode, click on the ✇ symbol in front of the file name, to bring up its contextual menu.
In the contextual menu, click on Upload to bring up another menu on top of the screen.
Drag the edited file from the desktop to the 'Drag file here' box.

Modify file block properties

To select the file block, in edit mode, click on the ✇ symbol.
The following pop-up menu appears:

We will come back to the multiple properties of a file block later. First of all 'File title' and 'Abstract' allow you to describe what is in the file, a bit like the title and the abstract of a scientific article.
Then, 'Show content' allows, for an office file, to see the content of the file directly in Storga, without having to open it.

Practical work

   •   

Start creating a few sub-pages, and store your office files there.
Remember that in the same page, you can use indents and paragraphs to enter additional information and thus make your archives clearer.
