Managing your assets

Learn about Akord's encryption is a key com

Overview

Within the Assets view of your vault you will see a list of every file uploaded. From this view you can more easily focus and manage your assets.

This view looks similar to any cloud storage provider with all your files listed in a tabular format. You can sort each column by clicking the title – Name, Modified at, Versions – and sort results in ascending/descending or A-z/Z-a order.

How your documents are encrypted

When you upload a file to your vault it’s encrypted locally before it ever leaves your device. The document is always encrypted while it’s on Akord’s servers. It’s impossible for us to ever decrypt your data, or anyone else in the event Akord was ever hacked. When you downloaded a file or preview a file, it is only ever decrypted locally.

Previewing your files

You can preview your files by clicking on the name of file, which will launch the file previewer. From this view you can cycle through the preview for each file by pressing the arrow keys on each side of the screen.

If there are multiple versions of the file, then you will have dropdown menu option from the file title where you will be able to view previous versions that were uploaded.

Filtering your assets view

Similarly to the activity view, you can also filter the assets view from the same icon in the top right. You can filter the view to show certain file types, a time period of when the files were uploaded, or a combination of both.
