File conversion settings in WorkDrive

File Conversion Settings

In Zoho WorkDrive, you can upload files in .docx, .pptx, or .xlsx format, and preview them. To edit these files, you need to convert them to Zoho WorkDrive format.

You can choose at a team level whether newly uploaded documents, spreadsheets, and presentations should be automatically converted to the respective Zoho WorkDrive format (Writer, Sheet, or Show) or not. You can also allow or restrict Team Folders admins and anyone in your team from accessing this option in their Team Folders and My Folders, respectively.

To choose file conversion settings:
  1. Click Admin Console in the bottom-left corner of your WorkDrive account.
    The Admin Console page will open in a new tab. Dashboard will be selected by default.
  2. Click Settings in the left panel. The Profile settings will be displayed by default.
  3. Select Content.



  4. Toggle Convert all files to Zoho WorkDrive's format on upload ON or OFF to enable or disable file conversion.
  5. Select the checkbox if you want to allow Team Folder Admins to manage this option for their Team Folders (from Team Folder Settings).
  6. Select the checkbox below if you want to allow anyone in your team to manage this option for their My Folders (from User Preferences).
  1. Check the supported files for conversion in WorkDrive.

  2. WorkDrive's file conversion setting will not affect the files directly uploaded to Writer, Sheet, and Show, where all non-WorkDrive format files will be converted and opened in their corresponding editor app.

  3. Files uploaded via WorkDrive Sync and TrueSync apps will not be converted automatically. You will need to manually open these files in their respective apps to convert them.
