Navigating folders

Once you log into Syncplicity, you can tap the folder icon in the main navigation menu to view folders and files.

The navigation works as a sheet-based navigation. Navigating through deep folder hierarchies has been made easy through an intuitive interface that represents folder hierarchies as sheets that you can swipe through.

Tap any folder to go inside that folder. The new level comes as a sheet on top of the parent folder. At any point, you can view three sheets in portrait mode and four sheets in landscape mode.

You can navigate through the sheets and browse quickly to deep hierarchies. When you are inside a hierarchy, you can quickly swipe up or down any of the parent folder hierarchies.

Swiping left to right slowly drags the topmost sheet while swiping left to right quickly on a sheet takes out that sheet completely.

Tap the full screen icon () at any level to see the hierarchy in full screenThe back icon takes you back to the parent hierarchies. No back icon is shown from the top-level folder.

Inside any folder, you can find more subfolders and files. Top-level folders, subfolders and files have different contextual actions. At any point, you can quickly move out of the folder navigation by tapping any other icon such as Favorites, Activity Feed and so on.

Tapping the folder icon on the main navigation bar takes you back to folder navigation.

The screenshot below shows folder navigation with four level deep folder hierarchies. You can quickly navigate to any folder in any of these levels using this navigation paradigm.

Tap the full screen icon on top to have a full screen view. The back icon takes you to one level up. For example, the back icon in the screenshot below shows the Newsletter, Programs and Webinars folders as the top sheet.

A folder view includes both folders and files, note that each of the folders icon in the view changes based on the type of folder. Each of the folders listed in the view are marked to indicate the ownership and share status:

  Your personal folders available for access and downloading files

  Personal folders you shared with others

  Folders others have shared with you
