Accessing M-Files with M-Files Web

You can get an access to M-Files vaults also with M-Files Web that is a browser-based client of M-Files. With M-Files Web, you can use the basic M-Files functions.

There are two versions of the browser version available: the classic M-Files Web and a new M-Files Web. The user interface for both versions is similar to that of M-Files Desktop. With the classic M-Files Web, see the M-Files Desktop User Interface section for more information about the user interface components. The new M-Files Web has its own user guide that you can find from the user interface.

You can get the address of M-Files Web in your organization from your system administrator. For instructions on how to set up the M-Files Web connection in your organization, see Setting Up Web and Mobile Access to M-Files.

Note: By default, when you install and configure M-Files Web, it operates on the same computer with M-Files Server and gives access to the vaults on this server. To configure the classic M-Files Web to use M-Files Server that is located on another computer, refer to the document How to Configure M-Files Web Access on a Separate Server Computer.

Logging in to classic M-Files Web

  1. Navigate in your web browser to the M-Files Web address provided by your system administrator or an M-Files consultant.
    Example: Let's say the name of your vault is Sales Tracker. In that case, the address can be, for example, for cloud-based deployments, or for on-premises vaults. Within your corporate network, the connection protocol might be HTTP instead of HTTPS.
  2. Input your login credentials or select Log in with current Windows credentials.
  3. If you have access to several vaults, select the vault you want to connect to.
    If you have access to only one vault, you will be connected automatically.
You should now be logged in and you should see the M-Files home screen.
