Once the file and/or web page is uploaded, it will display beneath the drag and drop field. The name assigned to the project file will default to the original file name. Similar to other fields on the project details page, you can click the field to change the assigned name.

Versioning Files

When a file is Versioned, Requesters will only have access to the the most recent version of the file.

inMotion will also allow you to store multiple versions of a file. If you would like to update a project file with a new version, select the actions menu to view additional options. Click Add New Version to select the updated file from your computer.

Once you have uploaded the new version, you can preview the updated file. From the file preview, you can then view the version history or delete the current version selected.

Identifying a File as a Deliverable 

Files uploaded to projects created from requests can be labeled as a deliverable, which will immediately share the file with the requester. This keeps stakeholders updated and delivers final files more quickly, even if the entire project is not completed.  

To mark a project file as a deliverable, navigate to the file, click the options icon, and select Deliverable

The file will then be labeled as a Deliverable.

Respective requesters will have access to the file prior to the project completion. If the file was versioned, requesters will only have access to the most recent version of the file.

Removing Files

If you would like to delete a file, select the options menu towards the right of the file to view additional options. Click Delete This File to permanently remove it from the project. This will delete both the latest file and all associated versions.
