Recent Files window

This window allows preview and management of projects stored on disk.


Each project saved on the hard disk is automatically added to the Recent Files window, which stores its path. This ensures that documents are immediately available for previewing, opening, and editing at every startup.


The Recent Files window shows the following preview information about the properties of individual projects


Path: shows the full path to the file on the disk: if the file is moved, deleted or is not available on the network, the item text is shown in red to indicate that the file was not found.

Bind to: shows the key entity of the project which can be a group or an organizational unit, if it is a group the prefix Group: is shown followed by the group name, if it is an organizational unit the prefix OU: is shown followed by the path of the organizational unit in the Active Directory OU structure.

Type: shows the type of the project, this can be Group or User depending on whether the project manages lists of users or groups.

Recursive: Shows whether the project manages only items with direct membership in the key entity or also items in sub-containers or members.

The list can be sorted by column, simply by clicking on the column header.
