How can I download and save all the materials in a workspace before leaving it?
Go to the “Materials” rubric of the workspace from where you want to download the material entries. Display all the entries on one page by selecting “All” from the “Max. items per page” option below the list of entries. Now, to select all entries, put a tick in the box next to “All” below the last entry. Once all entries are selected, select “save entries” from the nearby drop down menu and then click the “apply” button. A pop-up window will appear for saving the files, just like for a download from the internet: Select “save file “, click “OK” and then choose a location on your hard drive where you want to save the files to.
Please note: If a window does not automatically open for saving the files, try it with another browser.
As well as the uploaded files, the material entries themselves will be saved in the form of an html-file. You can delete this file if you do not need it.
The save process can take some time, depending on the number of material entries. If there are a very large number of files, this can lead to error warnings due to insufficient disk space. In such cases, save the files in batches.
The saving function doesn’t only work with material entries; all entries can be saved, e.g. discussions, events, and tasks.
