Files View

If you’re used to working with images, videos, or any other visual content on a daily basis, Infinity's Files View is just what you need.

Whether you're managing a design project, organizing your photography portfolio, or simply keeping track of visual assets, the Files View provides an intuitive and visually engaging way to manage your files.


With this view, you can easily upload, view, and organize your files in a grid-based layout that makes it simple to browse and locate the content you need. Each item will display a preview, giving you a quick visual reference and making it easier to manage large collections of files.

Let’s dive into how the Files View works and how it can enhance your workflow.

How to Use the Files View

There are two ways to access the Files View in Infinity.

  1. In one of your existing tabs, click on the view switcher and select ‘Files’. If you have multiple files within the folder, they will all be displayed once you change your view.


  1. Select the Files View when creating a new folder. Once you do, you’ll need to upload your documents (images, videos, PDF files, and so on) by clicking on the plus button.

Using Group, Filter, and Sort

As is the case with other Infinity views, you can also filter, group and sort your files.

  1. Filtering files works the same as regular filtering. Click on the Filter button, select the attribute to filter your items by and add the necessary rules.


  1. Grouping files works somewhat differently. If you click on the Group button, you’ll notice four options: None, Item, Attribute and Item/Attribute.

By clicking on ‘None’, you get to display all the files within your folder in the grid.

If you select ‘Item’, you will group all your files by items.


So, for example, if your items are actually blog posts, your images will be grouped together by blog post.

If you select ‘Attribute’, all files will be grouped by different ‘Attachments’ attributes you created within a folder.

Finally, if you select ‘Item/Attribute’, you will group your files by both items and ‘Attachments’ attributes you created.


  1. When it comes to sorting files, you can: sort them by the date when they were created, date when they were updated, by their name, type and size.


How to Share Your Files

If you click on the Share button within your Files View, you will notice that there are two ways to share files with people on your team or outside Infinity.

The first option allows you to publish the Files View by creating a public link you can send to whomever you want. Once they access the link, they will see all the files you uploaded.


On this link, they can group and sort items, as well as download them and use the ‘Quick Search’ option.


However, you are the only one who can filter out files and the filters you use will be applied to the link you share, meaning that people with the link will see only files of your choosing.

The second option allows you to create shared links and share only certain files. To do this, tick the boxes on each file you wish to share, then in the bar below click on the ‘Share’ icon.


In the pop-up window, first select when you want the link to expire – anywhere between 1 day and 1 year. You can always prolong the time period (if needed) later on.


Then, you can either click on the ‘Copy Link’ button and share it with others, or you can send them the link via email.
