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

This functionality is only available to general Alfresco ECM Administrators.

Administrators can impersonate another user. The administrator can see what a user can see to (Does this “to” mean “also?” If so it needs to be “too.” Or, do you mean “see to” as in “do?” If that is the case, it is okay.), for example, troubleshoot permissions.

  • 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 relevant Alfresco username and click on “Switch User”

  • The Administrator will have a minimum of consumer (=read) access to the folder structure and documents that appear
