What can I do with my files and folders?

You can organize and work with your files in the cloud from a web browser in much the same way as the files on your local computer. All you have to do is sign in to Oracle Content and Experience Cloud and you're ready to go.

If your assigned user role doesn't let you do a particular task, or if you can't perform a task for some other reason, the menu option won't be available.

The folder icons on your home page show what kinds of folders they are. A folder with a shared icon (gray shared folder) indicates that you shared the folder or someone else has shared a folder with you. A plain folder (plain gray folder with no icon) indicates one of your personal folders. File icons show the type of file, for example, a .jpg file or a .doc file.

To filter what you see, click the menu next to the heading on the home page. You can view all items, shared items, favorites, or items in your Trash folder.

To sort your file list, click the sort option at the top right corner of the file list. You can sort by name or by when the items were last updated. Click the view menu icon to select a list view, a compact view, or a grid view of your files and folders.

The following table lists common actions you can do in the service. Depending on how wide your browser window is, you may not see all menu options. If you don't see an option when you select an item, click More in the menu bar to see the hidden options.

Task Description

Create new folders

Browse to where you want to create a new folder or subfolder and click Create.

Copy or move files or folders

Select one or more files or folders and choose Copy or Move on the menu bar or right-click menu.

If you copy a file or folder to the same location, the copy is renamed with a number added to the name. For example, Sales Report(2).doc.

Rename files or folders

Select the file or folder to rename and choose Rename on the menu bar or right-click menu.

You can’t change a file extension.

Delete files or folders

Select one or more files or folders and choose Delete on the menu bar or right-click menu.

If you delete a file or folder, it's moved to your cloud Trash folder, just like on your local computer. If you change your mind, go to the Trash folder and restore the deleted item. To check your Trash, click the Trash link on the pulldown menu on your home page.

Deleted items stay in the Trash until one of the following events happens:

  • You permanently delete them.

  • Your Trash quota is reached.

  • The Trash is automatically cleared out according to the schedule set by your service administrator, the person in charge of managing the service for your organization.
