This opens a dialog with the folder structure with their content and size. The Download List option allows exporting this list to an Excel file.

4. App Content

The objects in the selected folder are displayed here. Because there are different Apps (See App Bar), the App Content will adapt according to the selected App.

On top of the App Content, you find Actions and a Views. Except for the Dashboard App all Apps will have an App Content with Actions and Views.

5. Actions

All the actions in the App Content are stored in two different bars. The actions in these menus adapt according to the App, access rights and/or the folders/objects you selected. You will only see the actions that are currently possible for you. According to the number of the selected objects, you can choose which bar you want to use.

If you do not see all the actions that are explained in the different Apps, it means you have insufficient rights for these actions (See Introducing Bricsys 24/7). To see which rights you have, see the folder information action in Views.

  • Actions on a single object
    • Actions on top of the App Content

      Click the checkbox of the object and select an action.

    • Hover Bar

      Hover over the object and select the action:

  • Actions on multiple objects
    • Actions on top of the App Content

      Click the checkboxes of the objects and select an action.

      For most Apps there is a main action, a secondary action and a drop-down list with additional actions.


In the top right corner of the App Content you can change the view of the App content. The Views adapt according to the App and folder you selected. Furthermore you can also filter or view information about your rights here.

Depending on the application multiple views might be available. The image above displays the options for the documents folders:
