Step 3. Store and manage documents in the Private Room

When users connected to the ONLYOFFICE cloud via Desktop Editors, they can use the Private Room section of the Documents module to store documents and collaborate on them securely.

Private Room Private Room

The Private Room of each user contains:

  • folders and files created by the current user,
  • files shared with the current user by other users from the Private Room.
work in the Private Room and documents stored in it are only available when you connect to your ONLYOFFICE cloud via the Desktop Editors interface.

Within the Private Room, you can:

  • create folders,
  • create and upload files (.docx, .xlsx, .pptx),
  • share documents with other portal users,
  • co-edit documents.

All documents are encrypted once uploaded or created. All the documents stored in the Private Room are encrypted and marked with the Encrypted file icon icon in the file list.
