This feature enables the mapping of a network drive with a subsite folder. Thus enabling easy upload and file management.
Here are the steps to do it.
Step 1 - Click on the Share button to map the selected folder.
Step 2 - Create a new access key or use an existing one.
Step 3 - Click on the access key to see connection details.
Step 4 - Store these connection details to be used in the next steps.
Now we can use these details to map it as a drive from a command prompt or follow step 5 onwards for doing it from windows explorer.
Step 5 - Right-click in windows explorer and select Add a network location
Step 6 - Enter the network address from step 4
Step 7 - Enter user/password from step 4
That’s it. Now the folder should appear in your windows explorer and you can copy items in that folder to upload them. Similarly you can view, update, rename, delete items as required.
Who has access to creating access keys and map network drive can be controlled by the admin setting.
So go to Admin → Utilities → Config settings → Front End Customization → Setting to show/hide map as a network drive and configure it as required.
