Laserfiche Cloud - Map a local network drive to Cloud hosted repository folder - possible?

asked on January 17

I'm looking to create a shared local network drive to a specific folder hosted in Laserfiche Cloud.

I need to keep a Work In Progress data folder in place for ongoing work till projects are completed and finalized then stored in the Laserfiche directory structure.  That said I'm trying to keep it all in Laserfiche so that ALL data can be searched, but final and in progress data when and if necessary.

Trying to prevent the creation of data silo's around the organization.

Thanks in advance for any help.

There is a WebDav component in on-prem Laserfiche that in theory could do this, although it doesn't sound very stable from what I read, so trying to rig it to work with Cloud would likely be a pretty advanced (and not necessarily possible) task. But a possible starting point:

Thank you, I'll take a look at that documentation.  I no longer have an on-prem server, just cloud.

This is not going to work as the WebDAV Redirector needs to be installed on the Laserfiche Server which is not accessible to cloud.

If you don't mind me asking, what is the benefit of having a network drive for "in-progress" documents over just keeping them in Laserfiche to begin with?

I can't speak to Michael's use case, but the primary reason I've looked into this before is for customer's looking to store CAD/architectural drawing files with their repositories.

Many architectural drawing files are dependent on other include files being present in the same folder as the primary/parent file, which means users having to download a whole folder of files into a temporary local folder to be able to view the drawing
