What is the library homepage?

When you open a library in AODocs, the library homepage opens if you're in:

  • a Team Folder or a Secured Folder with more than one view
  • a Document Management library

– If you're in a Team Folder or a Secured Folder with only one view, the library opens on the view.
– To navigate to the homepage of your library, press the library name in the breadcrumb in the library header.

The library homepage contains:

Top panel
Left panel
Central panel
Right panel
