The GroupDocs dashboard provides you with several features for organizing files and folders. The new dashboard is very user friendly, so you get familiar with it pretty quickly. In this post, we focus on the GroupDocs dashboard. I'm going to list some of GroupDocs dashboard's key features useful for document management:
Earlier this week I talked about document conversion, including image conversion, and why you'd want to do it. Today, I'll show you how to perform two tasks: first, how to convert the pages in a document to images and then how to convert an image from one format to another.
Document conversion is one of the services that GroupDocs offers. You can convert documents you've uploaded to a number of different formats. Exactly which formats depends on the type of document. Microsoft Word files can be converted to all kinds of different formats, from plain text TXT files to HTML. You can also convert the pages in a document to images that you can then use in presentations, other documents or online. For example, you can convert from PDF to JPG, DOC to JPG and many other file formats.
There's more to GroupDocs than online document storage. Saying that, we realize that one of the reasons that you're interested in GroupDocs is the storage feature. So what's document storage all about and what should you look for when choosing a online storage service?
1. Storage Space
The first thing to consider is what you want to store and how much space you'll need.
Documents differ in size and it can be difficult to estimate document sizes. For example, video and audio files are huge compared to text files. Look at War and Peace: as a simple TXT file is is 3.3MB in size. As an MP3 audio book, it is over 875MB. That's 265 times the size.
You've got a GroupDocs account and now what? This blog post is the first in a short series that walks you through how to use GroupDocs. In the coming weeks, well explain how to:
- use GroupDocs Signature,
- share documents with your colleagues,
- convert images to use as thumbnails, and
- assemble a document.
But first, we'll explain how to upload a file. That's the first and most basic task that you can perform once you've logged in. It's as easy as 1-2-3!
