Using the Windows Explorer Plug-in


Use the Windows Explorer Plug-in when you want to view the status of items and folders in relation to a Dimensions CM project, or to update the local work area or the repository with changes

PRIVILEGES  To create or update items in the repository:
Update Item Content
Create Item

NOTE  Some operations require access to the Dimensions CM database, in which case, if you are not already logged in, you will be presented with a log in dialog box in order to continue.

NOTE  The Windows Explorer Plug-in uses client metadata in order to make comparisons between the work area and the repository. The files and folders in the work area that correspond to existing items and directories in the project need to have been created using Dimensions CM item file operations in order to create or maintain this metadata.
