We've recently made some changes to the "Documents" section of Collaborative Tools to enhance file security within the system. The Documents and File Versions are no longer accessible by URL as before; you must be a logged in member of the group to download a file.
If we did our work correctly, you should not notice any change at all. However, should you encounter issues, please submit a ticket to our help system.
This change does not include files uploaded to the discussion posts. Adding additional security to files included in discussion posts will be addressed during the next round of updates to Collaborative Tools, which will occur later this year.
If you have any questions about this change, or would like additional details about security within Collaborative Tools, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since the file handling for the Documents section was re-written, we also took the opportunity to add file uploads to the Documents section in mobile version of Collaborative Tools. iOS 6 introduced support for file uploads in Safari, which Android has had since version 2.2. Other mobile operating systems may or may not support this feature.
