It'd be beneficial to see who has a file locked from within FileCloud Drive when a file is opened. Currently, if it's a Microsoft Office file, it just says Another User.

Thank you for your valuable Suggestion,

We understand the importance of knowing who has a file locked, especially when working collaboratively. Your insight into enhancing visibility within FileCloud Drive is indeed valuable.

However, we would like to inform you that FileCloud Desktop, integrated with FileCloud for Office, provides a potential solution. This integration is designed to display the user's name who has the file locked when accessed through FileCloud for Office, offering greater transparency and reducing confusion about who is currently working on a file. You can learn more about it by downloading it from our FileCloud Desktop page.

We hope you find FileCloud Desktop a robust alternative that addresses your needs without compromising security. If you have further questions or require assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Please ensure that all users are utilizing FileCloud Desktop along with FileCloud for Office to experience this functionality. If users access files through other means, this level of detail may not be available, which highlights the relevance of your suggestion for broader application scenarios.

We appreciate your active participation in our community and look forward to more of your valuable suggestions.
