Connecting Cloud Storage
i3WHITEBOARD allows you to connect to the following cloud providers:
To start, choose “Add cloud storage” from the Save or Open dialog and follow the instructions on the screen.
Once logged in, you can use your cloud storage to browse, save and open files to and from the connected cloud provider.
If you no longer want to use cloud storage, press “LOGOUT.”
i3WHITEBOARD will automatically store your current session, so you don’t have to worry about losing progress when navigating to and from other apps.
Choose a name for your i3WHITEBOARD file.
By default, i3WHITEBOARD will save your whiteboard file in the Whiteboards folder. You can choose a different location by pressing on “browse.”
You can navigate back.
And choose a different folder.
Press open when you have chosen your preferred folder.
Besides saving your i3WHITEBOARD file on the display storage, you can also use another connected source like a USB stick.
Press “Save” to save your work to the final chosen location.
When you need to protect a file with a password, it can be done when saving the file.
When saving a file, the toggle “Add Password“ is present, adding a field to the saving screen where the password can be inserted.
The password of the file has no restrictions in characters but in length. The password must be of 4 or more characters. Once the minimum length requirement is met, the error message about the password length will disappear.
When opening a password-protected file, a prompt to insert the password will appear. To continue opening the file, the correct password must be inserted. In cases where a file was left open, the prompt will appear as soon as the application is loaded. A new workspace will be created when pressing the cancel button while the file is already opened in the background. Otherwise, pressing unlock with the right password will open the file normally.
Password-protected files will not show a preview as they are to be kept private in order not to display the content.
Password-protected files can be deleted without asking for password input from the Open screen found in the hamburger menu. When saving with a password, it is recommended to save it into a private directory or cloud drive in order to prevent deletion of the file from other users.
A password is not recoverable, in case of a lost password, the file cannot be accessed anymore.
You can customize various application settings and workspace settings via the “Settings” option in the main menu.
In addition, you can also see the version number of the application.
For autosaving, the current whiteboard must be manually saved first on an available storage location. The autosave feature will continue to save your file whenever any changes are made.
Note: The autosave function will stop working if the medium to which it tries to save is removed or disconnected. This may happen when you remove a USB stick or disconnect cloud storage.
