Create Documents in Egnyte


Product: Web UI Release Date: February 22, 2023.

Create Documents/Folders/Projects in Egnyte

With this release, the existing feature of creating documents/folders/projects has been improved in many ways. 

  • The existing menu available to create documents/folders/projects from within a folder has been revamped to make it much more intuitive and logically structured to help the user navigate through the options available to create different objects within Egnyte.


  • The users will now be able to create on the fly documents from the home dashboard without having to navigate to a specific folder. 

  • The documents created from the template for supported formats of MS Office and Google Workspace documents will now open for editing similar to blank documents.  This is applicable only to users of customers who have enabled the MS Office and Google Workspace integrations.
  • The users will now get visibility into the path/location where the document/folder is being created.
