In MyOffice Documents you can upload text documents from your personal computer for viewing and editing.

The system administrator can forbid uploading certain types of files. If you try to upload a file of a prohibited type, an error will appear.

Convert a file during the upload

When uploaded, documents in a number of formats are automatically converted to the internal .xodt/.xott format

The following files are converted: .docx, .doc, .rtf, .txt, .docm, .dotx, .dot, .odt, .ott.

If a file cannot be converted, it is opened for viewing only.

A password-protected document cannot be converted: a warning message will be displayed to remove the password and upload the document again.

Upload a file

If you want to open a text file from your device, use the Upload and open command. The file will be automatically uploaded to My documents folder in the file storage. When you upload a file, it is converted into the internal format of the respective applications. If the format is supported by MyOffice editors, the file will open in the respective application. If the file cannot be converted, it will open in the view only format.

You can upload and open the file in the following way:

1.Click File > Upload and open or press Ctrl+O (command Cmd+O).

2.In the opened window, select the file and click Open.

3.When the uploading begins, a pop-up window will appear on your screen. If the file needs converting, it will be done automatically before uploading.

4.When the file is uploaded, you'll be notified with a pop-up window that the file is available for opening:

Click Open to open the file in the new browser tab. It will be available either for editing (text, spreadsheet and presentation files) or for viewing (presentations and .pdf).

Click Cancel to close the upload window. The file will not be available for editing or viewing. The file will be available in My documents folder in the file storage of MyOffice Documents.

You cannot convert a password-protected document. When converting, you will be warned to delete the password and upload the document once again.

If an error message window appears when downloading or converting a file, the file may have been damaged or the internet connection may have been interrupted. Try to upload the file again by clicking Retry.

When you upload a signed external-format document using MyOffice Text, the document's electronic signature will be removed as a result of conversion. To avoid losing the signature of external format documents and documents with detached electronic signature, upload such documents using MyOffice Documents application.

The administrator of MyOffice software can restrict certain file types from uploading. If you try to upload a restricted file type, a corresponding error message will appear.

When the storage limit is exceeded or almost reached, the users will receive the following notifications:

When approaching the set limit: A notification will be displayed above the Control bar that the file storage space is running out. This notification is a warning, and the user can continue working on files without interruption. You can hide the warning by clicking wind_close on the warning or by logging in to MyOffice web applications again. In case the quota problem persists the next day, the notification will be shown to the user once again.

The allocated quota limit has been reached: A notice will be displayed above the Control bar that the file storage space is running out. This warning cannot be hidden, no further operations with files are possible until the quota issue is solved.

To free up space, delete unnecessary files from the storage or contact your system administrator to increase the quota size.
