    Open/attach/add
  • exported to UNIVERGE BLUE™ SHARE when the user is working in the third-party App using native Save/Share/Export menu (i.e. uploaded from other Apps):

Known issues:

  • For apps that support both technologies of the App-to-App integration (Action_pick & Document provider), UNIVERGE BLUE™ SHARE app be listed twice on devices on Android 4.4+. There are no differences between these two Apps.
  • Standard icons for all file types are used for both list view and gallery view in the document provider. Preview for Image files available only for Pictures uploaded from this particular device
  • Activity feed contains only 1000 last events. All Deleted events are filtered out.
  • There is a known issue in the Android Document provider. Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open the Gmail app (for example, the bug affects other apps too)
    2. Add attachment through the Document Provider (not cached on SD card)
    3. Add another attachment before the first one has been loaded
    4. Press Send
    As a result, the Gmail app will report that some attachments could not be sent. It's still possible to add multiple attachments if you add them at the same time (long tap on items in the Documents provider) or by sending cached files.
