Planio's new Storage App just received an update which brings two much requested features.
Notifications for changes to files and folders¶
Users can now receive notifications about changes (that is, creation, modification and deletion) of files and folders in Planio Storage. The same settings in My Account, which control notifications about issue updates and so on, will also influence what changes in Storage users will be notified about.
For fine grained control, we also introduced the possibility to watch files and folders, which becomes relevant when a user has selected the "Only for things I watch or I'm involved in" setting in her notification preferences. The watch setting on folders is recursive, so all files and folders inside a watched folder are considered to be watched as well automatically.
To avoid flooding users' mailboxes with notifications, these are consolidated over a period of time. Emails only get sent out when no more changes happened for a certain period of time in order to group related changes in a single notification email.
Restoration of deleted files¶
The new Trashcan can be accessed through a link in the sidebar of the Storage app. It keeps hold of deleted files for 3 days, providing a safeguard against accidental deletion of files.
Files and folders in trash can be restored or permanently removed before this happens automatically. Administrators may choose to purge all files permanently in one go, while other users may only purge those files that they deleted themselves. Protected files and folders remain protected in Trash as well - they cannot be seen in the Trashcan view by users without the proper permissions.
