Uploading files to a workspace

Any file can be uploaded to the Files & Discussions tab. The Upload button allows you to upload a single file; clicking on the arrow next to Upload will display options for you to upload a single file or multiple files to a workspace at once.


Files can also be added to a workspace via email.

Note: the following symbols are not supported in file names and will be stripped: # % & * : < > ? / \ { | } . This is in line with Windows naming conventions.

Single File (5GB file size limit)

To upload a single file, select the drop down option and  Single File. When redirected to the upload wizard, you will be able to:

  • choose a file to upload
  • designate a folder to upload
  • set the status
  • enter a description
  • add tags
  • notify and discuss with others, which allows you to include subscribers and notify them of comments and uploaded versions



Multiple File Upload

To upload multiple files, select the arrow next to Upload > Multiple Files. Depending on which browser you are using, your multiple file upload experience will differ.


Drag and Drop

You can also drag and drop files and folders within Files & Discussions directly in the browser. When viewing a file list, simply drag and drop a file from your computer into the browser.

Note: If files are opening instead of uploading when using HTML 5 and drop, try resetting your zoom settings (so that you are no longer zooming) and then try uploading again.



Exclusively for Chrome, you can even use drag and drop to upload a new version of a file! When viewing the preview page for a file, simply drag and drop a file over the preview of the file.

In Chrome, you can also now drag and drop entire folders into iMeet® Central.


To drag and drop files in OS X you must press and hold CTRL + SHIFT. A window will form within the drag and drop window. Drag this window out of the drag and drop zone. Now drag and drop files into the newly formed window. 


Apple's OSX Lion does not initially support Java Runtime. To utilize the drag and drop feature with Lion, please install the Java application directly from Apple's Support Website.

Browser add-ons related to uploading files like this Firefox add-on have been known to affect the file upload process.
