OnePlaceDocs Explorer

Bring SharePoint to where users work.

OnePlace Docs brings SharePoint locations directly to where end users are familiar working, their desktop.

Navigation Tree

The navigation tree is shared across OnePlaceMail for Desktop and OnePlaceDocs. This provides a consistent way to access SharePoint locations.

OnePlaceDocs provides the navigation tree on start-up, providing access to SharePoint, regardless of application the user requires.

Grid view

A consistent experience when viewing items in SharePoint via OnePlaceDocs, users can select documents or items in the grid view.

Preview and Properties Pane

When an item is selected, on the right hand side a preview of the document is presented to the user. The user has the option to select "Properties view". When selected, the user has the ability to update item metadata directly from the desktop.
