StratusDrive is a cloud storage service that resides on your computer enabling file management tools such as versioning, Sharing and Storage.   All Users and Projects that have Stratusdrive enabled, will have access to the most current documents on their local computer, Sage Project Center and Sage Mobile App.   

 

This Manual will run you through the purpose of StartusDrive, installing StratusDrive, file usage and all of the different modes to view the documents.

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

StratusDrive is like any other Cloud Storage service like OneDrive or Google Drive with the advantage of also connecting directly to your Sage Project Center site and Sage Mobile app.  

IMPORTANT: Since it is a cloud based service, you do have to have constant access to the internet to access the files (Vaulting Folders is a way to access offline).  If you should drop internet access, it will resume wherever you left off before losing access.

 

  1. Viewing Folders and files stored on StratusDrive are visible in three locations: 
    1. Your local computer drive,  after StratusDrive is installed
      1. Defaults to S: but you can choose any drive available on your computer
