Advanced Features

Private Folders

Private Folders Front-End

You can easily and securely share documents via Box with your clients with the Private Folders feature. This feature allows your clients to preview, download and upload documents to their own private folder.

There are two ways you can use the 'Private Folders' feature: Manually and Automatically

In the Manual mode, you will link your WordPress Users to their own folder on your Box by hand. This is can be useful in cases when you are already using client folders on your Box, or if you want multiple users to use the same client folder.

To use the Private Folders feature in this mode, follow these instructions:

  1. Go to Lets-Box -> Private Folders in the WordPress Admin Dashboard
  2. Link your users to their folder on your Box via the Link to Private Folder button
  3. Go to the Page Editor and open the Lets-Box Shortcode Builder
  4. Go to Folders panel and enable the Use Private Folders setting in the Smart Client Area section
  5. In the same section set the Mode to I will link the users manually
  6. Configure any other settings you need and press the "Insert Shortcode" button
  7. Done!

In the Automatic mode, you let the plugin automatically manage the Private Folders. The plugin will automatically link a user to its own Private Folder and it will create the Private Folder if needed in the by you seleted top-level folder. The advantage of this method is that you don't have to manage the folders manually. In this mode you can even select a template folder to fill the Private Folder with some starting material when it is created.

To use the Private Folders feature in this mode, follow these instructions:

  1. Go to the Page Editor and open the Lets-Box Shortcode Builder
  2. Go to Folders panel and enable the Use Private Folders setting in the Smart Client Area section
  3. In the same section set the Mode to Let the plugin automatically manage the Private Folders for me
  4. Configure any other settings you need and press the "Insert Shortcode" button
  5. Done!



info_outline
When you want to prefill newly created Private Folders, enable the Template Folder setting (Shortcode Builder -> Folders -> Smare Client Area).
info_outline
 You can control how the plugin is managing the Private Folders. Just take a look at the look at the Private Folders’ tab on the main plugin settings page (Lets-Box -> Settings).



Private Folders in Admin Dashboard

The Private Folders feature can also be used in the File Browsers in the WordPress Admin Dashboard. To enable this, go to the tab called 'Private Folders' on the main plugin settings page (Lets-Box -> Settings). The behavior of the File Browsers in the Admin section can be changed via the setting "Private Folders in Back-End".




info_outline
Via the User Permissions tab in the Shortcode Builder, you can always select what kind of actions (e.g. upload or delete documents) are allowed by your client.

Statistics

Would you like to see some statistics about your files? Lets-Box can send all download/upload events to Google Analytics. To enable this feature, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the main Lets-Box settings page
  2. Click on the Statistics tab
  3. Enable the Google Analytics setting
  4. Save the changes via the button "Save settings" on top

If you enable this feature, please make sure you already added your Google Analytics web tracking code to your site. In most themes you will have a Custom Script box where you can add your Google Analytics code

All events in the plugin are registered in Google Analytics as 'Events'. So, in your Google Analytics Dashboard you will find this under 'Behavior' -> 'Events' -> 'Overview'
