Viewing Document Thumbnails

Thumbnails view displays the thumbnail images of files so you can quickly identify the contents of the files. It supports all image files and PDF files while other type of files are displayed in their normal file icons. This view style is especially useful in helping the user to find a scanned document. Users can visually spot the image document rather than having to remember the name of the file.  

A Thumbnails view list generator displays file details such as filename, page#, controls to move between the pages and the document flag status. You can also sorting files in thumbnail view such as sort by name, date, size in ascending and descending manner.

If the file has been tagged with document status, a flag will be displayed in the top left hand corner. In the screenshot below file Invoice_423.pdf and Invoice_444 are flagged. The checkout file is indicated by the checkout lock on the top right hand corner. The file Invoice _444.pdf below is checkout for editing by the user.
