Filing Cabinet

 

Each class has their very own filing cabinet where you can store and share important documents, images and files for your class. Our file up-loader makes it easy to upload multiple files at once. 
Once a file has been uploaded you can copy it and use it anywhere in your KnowledgeNET. 
You can also create different folders to help organise your filing cabinet. When you create a new folder you can chose to make it a gallery folder. This means all photos stored in the folder will display in your class photo gallery.
Every user and group (excluding caregivers) have a filing cabinet. The filing cabinet is a place where store and share important documents, images and files. Our file up-loader makes it easy to upload multiple files at once into your filing cabinet. 

You can also record audio and video directly into your filing cabinet. This recording feature works by using your inbuilt microphone and camera - no need for 3rd party software!
