NOTE: As of the August 2019 update, files stored on a Workamajig hosted server will no longer have access to this feature. Only Windows Server or Mac Server WebDav setups will be able to benefit from this type of file access and authentication.
The following pertains to mapping folders when using the Workamajig version of WebDAV.
If you are using Box.com or Amazon S3 for your file storage, they use a different method to map folders to your desktop. Please read their instructions for mapping folders to your desktop.
The WebDAV file management piece of Workamajig allows users to access Project Folders/Files outside of the application. This is done by way of using your computers Map Drive feature.
By mapping a drive though Workamajig, all access rights to project folders and files are retained based on the setup within the system.
- Currently, we are unable to support mapping of WebDAV if you are using LDAP Authentication.
- You cannot access non-project files (Attachments to diary posts, activities, etc) through this process. That would require full access to the root of the file server.
If you (the client) host the Workamajig application (not just the WebDAV file server) on a server at your location or through a service other than us. Then you will need to speak with your IT folks for the path and login info to access your project files in this manner.
As an example, your path may look something like this: "https://wmj.mycompany.com/files".
Then you may be able to follow the steps below to access the files in this way.
If we (Workamajig) host the Workamajig application (regardless of where your files are stored), then you can follow the instructions provided below for Mac and Windows to set this up.
As an example, your path may look something like this: "https://app13.workamajig.com/files".
You may want to speak with your IT folks if you have questions setting this up on your computer.
