File Conversion Settings

In Zoho WorkDrive, 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.

  2. Click Settings in the left panel. The Profile settings will be displayed by default.
