Question

Can I map a drive to a folder in a repository

asked on November 8

We are starting a major project to move documents from various locations to Laserfiche.  Is it possible to map a laserfiche repository folder in Windows?  Or better yet, to have a Laserfiche repository folder show in the folder view of Outlook

If you have Import Agent, that is the best option, since every file will be checked and verified. You can copy all subfolders using Import Agent allowing you to use one profile to represent this "mapped folder" your looking for.

Otherwise your looking at WEBDAV, but beware, do the research on this first. I think there is very little verification when using this method.

Not sure what you mean by checked and verified.  I would assume that if someone had rights to a folder in the repository, then this "mapped" drive would be their way to easily put documents into the folder.  I was hoping to provide the users a more seamless experience so they wouldn't need to get to the repositories by using the client applicaton.

Exactly that. They are not longer using the application, which means they could be bypassing critical checks and balances coded into the application to ensure the repository state is clean. I can't speak on it for sure, a Laserfiche rep would be the best to discuss something like this with.

I tried to use WebDAV in the past and had some problems, in some cases it would work perfectly and in others things would get corrupted or the Laserfiche Service would shut down with an error. I assumed it was because I was bypassing the application.

Import Agent is a safe bet.
