The detailed file view is another viewing option for your content that provides greater detail and additional functionality compared to the default grid view.  The detailed file view allows you to view your content in a list including the following attributes:

  • Name - The file name
  • Date Added - The date the file was added to the system
  • Date Modified - Last modification date
  • Size - The file size
  • Type - The file type (such as DOCX for word, PPTX for PowerPoint etc)

Just like the default grid view, the detailed file view allows various file operation depending on the file type such as: open, share, email and download.
