Documents FAQ

Can I upload files on a project?

Can I link a project to a folder on my file system?

Twproject uses the concept of “file storage” to address this matter. You can have remote file systems, samba, subversion, ftp or amazon s3 “storages” and everyone can be linked to a project.

File storages are accessible with the mobile interface too. See
