Shared Documents allow you to create folders and subfolders and upload documents (brochures, marketing materials, detail designs and so on), replacing the need for FTP. You can secure folders so that only certain people can have access to certain folders. Folders can be private or public, company-wide or project-specific. Teams can check documents in and out to ensure the documents are not accidentally overwritten.
To open the Shared Documents screen, click Shared Documents on the main QAComplete toolbar.
