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, click the library name in the breadcrumb in the library header.

The library homepage contains:

  • We currently only provide the recent activity at the Library Homepage level and at the document level (document history). If you are interested, you can open a Feature Request in our community.
    Alternatively, you can always add the last update and last updater to the columns of you views, although it might not be enough for what you are looking for.

  • How do you show Recent Activity documents in a View? When we add new documents, you can see them in Recent Activity only but no where else in the Library? How do we get them show up in the Library itself say in a folder or an All Documents view?
