Replacing Files

enaio® coLab 10.10 »

Standard project members, project room owners, and project members with a corresponding user-based role are allowed to replace files in enaio® coLab. In this context, "replace" means overwriting existing files in enaio® coLab by uploading new files from the local file system.

Project members with the Guest role are not allowed to replace files in enaio® coLab.

You can replace a file by clicking the Replace file icon 'Replace file' icon behind the corresponding file in the directory structure in the files view. After clicking the Replace file icon 'Replace file' icon, the Replace file dialog appears. There, you can upload a file from your local file system to the project area of enaio® coLab using drag and drop or a file selection dialog. The file selected in enaio® coLab will be replaced in the project room and in the enaio® filing system. Download the latest version first if you want to compare and merge the versions.

Special Features of enaio® Object Types

There are some special features when replacing files in a coLab project room due to the extensive functionality of the enaio® object types:

Replacing Files in an enaio® Client

Project members who are also enaio® users also have the option of replacing the files in enaio® coLab using an enaio® client. To do so, you can use the functionality that enaio® offers for editing files. The files replaced in enaio® are automatically synchronized with the files in the coLab project room after editing.

If you have replaced files in enaio®, you may have to update the contents of your browser tab in enaio® coLab so that you can see the replaced files. Click the Refresh icon Refresh icon in your browser to refresh.

If the features described above are not available to you, then it may be because you have been assigned a user-defined role that does not contain the corresponding rights. Contact a coLab administrator or the project room owner if you have any questions or if you need these rights.
