Synchronisation Status for Files and Folders



Grey: File or folder has either not been synchronised or never been synchronised before. Please ensure that there is proper internet connection before attempting to synchronise your file or folder.
Green: File or folder has been successfully synced to the Cloud service.
Yellow: Changes have been made to a file or folder, but they have not been synced or uploaded to the Cloud service yet. To change the synchronisation status to green, tap on the file or folder.

Last Sync


Your last sync can be viewed by tapping on the icon, which is located next to the Search bar.

Initiate Sync Request


To sync all your files and folders at once, tap on the icon > tap on the Sync All button.

This is only applicable to files with a Green or Yellow synchronisation status.
If the 'Sync All' button is greyed out, this indicates that there is no proper internet connection, so files cannot be synchronized. To resolve this issue, please ensure that there is a proper internet connection.
To sync individual files or folders, simply tap on the file or folder that you would like to sync.

To open, create and edit documents in Cloud storage, install the Cloud service on your Mac directly from the service provider (Dropbox, Google Drive and iCloud). Then, create or open a document in the Cloud folder.
