|Q: What is File Manager?|
Each FastDirect user has the ability to upload files, although for parents and students, this function needs to be permissioned in Settings>FDmail. File Manager can be used in various parts of the FastDirect System: FDmail attachments, Links, GradeBooks, and Bulletin Boards. When a user uploads a file or attaches a file to an FDmail message, this means that file has been saved to the FastDirect servers. Here are the two type of folders where these files can be saved:
Private and Public Folders*:
Files placed in the Private folder are generally reserved for FastDirect users.
Files placed in the Public folder are available to the general public.
Important: Any file in the Public folder is NOT SECURE. It is searchable by any search engine (i.e. Google, Yahoo) and accessible by any internet user.
*The designation of Public and Private in File Manager has a different meaning than the same terms that are used in Bulletin Board viewing.
Please reference the FAQ How Do I Use File Manager to learn more about how your files are saved, how to upload files and how to remove uploaded files.
