File management

Have your files available in the right place

You can attach documents to work packages with drag and drop or select the file from a folder and upload it to the work package. The files will show in the work package detail view in the files tab.

Besides that, OpenProject offers Nextcloud and OneDrive/SharePoint integration (Enterprise add-on) to manage your files. If you have a Nextcloud or a OneDrive account, you can link it to OpenProject. These integrations allow users to link files and folders in these storage platforms with work packages in OpenProject. This makes it possible to see all files related to a work package (in OpenProject) and all work packages related to a file (in Nextcloud or OneDrive/SharePoint).
