What to do Before the File Manager Upgrade

Important notes: 

  1. The file owner has full control over their sharing permissions. The file owner needs to setup sharing. 
  2. All files that you have shared before File Manager will be migrated from m:drive. The access other users have to these files will not change with File Manager.  
  3. The backup process has changed! Providing you have an internet connection and are logged in, files will automatically be backed up to File Manager on exiting Agrimaster. This means that you no longer need to backup manually! 
  4. Only files in your Work folder [C:\Users\Public\Agrimaster\work] will be visible in File Manager. Providing you are connected to the internet File Manager will connect to the Mastergroup server and do the following:  
    • File Manager will attempt to upload and download files 
      • Files are uploaded if the local version of the file is newer than the version on the server, or if there is no version of that file on the server. 
      • Files are downloaded if the local version of the file is older than the version on the server, or if there is no version of that file on the server. 
    • Files are matched if they have the same filename and owner (user number). 
    • File Manager takes time zones into account when determining if a file is newer or older. 

Before You Upgrade 

  1.  You need to agree with your Accountant/Consultant which version of your file is correct/current. 
  2. If you have the current version in C:\Users\Public\Agrimaster\work, you don’t need to do anything (this will be the current in File Manager).  
  3. If your Accountant/Consultant has the current copy or data that is missing in yours (e.g. a budget), ask them to send it to you to so you have the correct version or follow this link to import a budget
  4. If you can’t remember your password, you should reset it and then change it 
  5. Use this time to tidy up your file sharing. If you set up file sharing in m:drive with a user that no longer requires access (e.g. an old accountant or an Agrimaster support member), you should remove sharing now
