What is WebDAV?
WebDAV stands for “Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning.” It is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol which allows users to collaboratively edit and manage files on remote web servers.
What does that mean for AKO?
AKO WebDAV allows you to set up a folder on your computer that lets you access the entire AKO file structure (that you have permissions to see) directly from your desktop as if they were normal Windows folders. If you’re familiar with shared network drives (commonly a S: or Z: drive), it makes AKO Files look and work like that.
