SpiderOak CrossClave is intended to make secure collaboration simple. Users upload files to a secure Space and choose to allow Team Members access. SpiderOak CrossClave presents a “File State” to show users when changes have been made or when immediate attention is necessary. Commonly the files will present without any icon at all, meaning you will need to download the file from CrossClave to begin any work.
This state occurs when you open a file from within CrossClave. Selecting the Cloud icon will push the version you are working on to the CrossClave space.
At this time, simply opening and closing an up to date file will immediately change its state to Commit. You can return its status to Up to Date by clicking on the ellipsis (3 dots) to the right of the file state and selecting “Discard Changes”, as shown below.
When two users access the same file at the same time, CrossClave will warn the user who saved the file most recently that there will be a conflict upon pushing the version to CrossClave.
The Conflict Resolution Screen will allow the user who most recently saved the file to select “Review.” Selecting “Review” will show the changes the team member had made. The user can decide to publish their own changes, their team members changes, or the user can simply choose the above option which allows them to upload their edits as a new file.
