Going through and updating status of ideas according to our new way of working. New process works as follows:

1. When you post a new idea that we consider valid, we will label it 'Open to vote for', so that it can be shared with other users and start gathering votes
2. Ideas that are support-related, already exist in some manner or non-implemented ideas that are older than a year and that have not gathered enough votes will be Archived.
3. We keep some older ideas that we think are in line with something we are planning otherwise or that have gathered enough votes.
4. If there are duplication of ideas, we may archive one of them and keep another which can continue to gather votes.
5. Ideas that we are planning to implement will be moved into the category 'Accepted'

I agree that an optional way to access the file repositiory would be good.

Especially it would be nice to support it since WebDAV shares have been supported natively as a type of filesystem since Mac OS X version 10.0 and there is no project place plugin for mac.

Hi all,

This was one of the top ideas discussed in last month's Ideas meeting. I hope I quoted your wishes correctly when I said that it's not the technology as such that is the need but rather the ability to have offline folders that will sync automatically with Projectplace.

I completely agree with the initial idea. Working only with the web frontend is sometimes very awkward and slow. Plus you always have to wait for the frontend until an upload / download / moving files is complete before you can continue working. With WebDav you could make those changes and (a good webdav client as prerequisite of course) then let it do multiple changes.

Webdav is also the best way to access documents from an iPad.

What I understand is WebDav not about offline functionality. WebDav seems to be a "remote" protocol for accesing files and their metadata. This would enable the use of other document browsers (that is WebDav compliant of course) then the official ProjectPlace browser. This whould potentially increase platform compatatability since ProjectPlace not have time nor resources to develop a native browser for each OS.

I strongly agree. Accessing common documents via the browser interface is cumbersome and slow.

As far as I know WebDAV only works over http and not https. Is projectplace over https or just http (port 80)?

I agree. Most cloud file services today are acessible with webDAV as connection technique. Why is nothing happening in this issue on PP even after two years since issue was raised?
Offline sync is not interesting anymore with uninterupted mobile access nowadays but a fast and reliable access is.

Hi, I just got this question form a prospect. Is there any chance this will be implemented in the (near) future? Thanks Sunil

BUMP!
This Idea just became highly critical sinnce the old PP browser is now replace and all PP actions are directed into you regular web browser. To avoid the mess this is causing (having PP windows mixed at "random" with regular browser windows) we now desperatly need a replacement for PP web GUI.
I would really like to see something with offline folders too!

This is like a joke. The second most important idea is "not yet prioritised". For 3 years, when this post started, nothing was done. Just change to another company, it's easier...

Hi Anonymous,

As you can see in my status update from the fourth, we are going through the ranked ideas to give a more accurate status. Until we have done so the status will continue to be "not yet prioritised"

I hope I can update to an accurate status soon.

WebDAV would neatly fit with my Ricoh MFP and its serveres apps.

This is still under discussion at the moment but with no definite plans for implementation. It is unlikely that it will be implemented in the next six months

This is still the all-time most voted idea. PLEASE, please put this back on the roadmap. When I have to "sell" ProjectPlace to other users (and to my manager who pays the subscription fee) it's one of the things I have to put on the list of downsides. I'm constantly apologizing to users that you don't offer this feature and explaining the clumsy workarounds they have to do.

Jen S. Just highlighted my feelings on this. It is a major drawback to the system.

We have Visio diagrams in PP, and we have Word files that include those. With WebDAV, you could have the Visio inside Word point to the up to date file on PP. Without, you have make a copy into the Word file, and that gets out of sync very quickly. Linking instead of copying works for many years with all other document repositories we have, only PP lacks this basic feature.
So please just open up at least read-only access via WebDAV to support linking and embedding.
