Zoho People helps prevent document management from being tedious. It features a centralized repository for storing and accessing files.

Zoho People's Files are bifurcated into Organization files, Employee files, and Personal Uploads for sorting your documents with clarity.

Organization Files- Generic documents like company handbooks, leave policies, and code of conduct folios can be stored in this general repository.

Employee Files- Documents containing sensitive information and files specific to employees can be stored under Employee Files with increased privacy.

All the files can be viewed either in a List View, 

Or in a Folder View.


Personal Uploads  -  this space is exclusively for employees' documents. The personal uploads can be accessed only by the employees. Even the admins do not have access to anyone's personal files. Typically an organization is given 1 GB of personal uploads space. This space is divided amongst the employees who can store their personal documents and files like driver's license, passport copy, etc.
