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.

Any news on this, the idea is two and a half years old and has a great amount of votes? How's the business case work going?

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.

We think that this idea is good and we’d like to take a better look at what the needs are behind and/or how it could fit into our current product strategy.

WebDav is partly integrated in the service and will let you open and edit documents in certain versions of Office even if you do not have either of the document add-ons installed.

We currently have document management add-ons that work in all major browsers on PC and Mac. You can download them from here: http://www.projectplace.com/community/download-center/

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

Custom plugins are problematic with company software policies. :-(

Please open WebDAV for making ProjectPlace accessible with standard tools. :-)

We discussed this again today. While it is possible that we will do something like this (not necessarily WebDav but some sort of offline sync for documents) it is not planned for the near future.
