Additional user functions

New Browse Tab

You can open multiple Browser tabs. Each tab will describe the active folder in the tab. You can also use the shortcut CTRL+T to open a new tab.

Recycle bin

The recycle bin enables you to restore deleted files and folders, similar to the Windows Recycle Bin.

Browse as user

Only the general Alfresco ECM Administrator will have following functionality available.

Administrators can impersonate another user. The administrator can see what a user can see, to troubleshoot permissions, for example.

  • Open the Windows Menu and click the “Browse-as-User”-command and a Browse as user tab will open.

  • In the upper textbox, fill in the Alfresco username and click on “Switch User”.

  • The specified user has at least consumer (=read) access to the folder structure and documents presented.
