Please change Start Page - last used files

We are a school, and our teachers see the "last used files" of everyone, because we have netfolders. So they see files of pupils, which they don't have, or they see files from other teachers, which they put in netfolders of their classes. This is very irritating. As admin I need to change this, or only have a picture or whatever!

I would agree. The more files you have access to, the less useful "recent files" becomes. Perhaps an option to only see the files that you have edited rather than anything in a folder you have access to.

I feel the main use of "recent files" is to allow you to quickly select a file you've been working on, so the files that others have been working on really doesn't have much benefit.

I need this too. For what reason I see recent files I don't even have access too?

 

I would like to disable this Recent Files View. Showing a picture as kswn mentioned or just landing at the My Files after login would be nice.

The Recent Files shows files from the netfolders  where a user has access. Hence you may be seeing those files as well.

If you open a Service Request with Support, they can provide a patch where you can disable files from netfolders showing up in Recent Files.

On landing at the My Files after login, a quick workaround would be for the user to bookmark “ https://<firlserver>/filr/user/my-files/ “, and access this.
