About the Attach2Cloud centrally managed usage policies

The Attach2Cloud Administrators can define and manage Attach2Cloud usage policies centrally. For instance the upload of some files to OneDrive can be forced based on their size or their types.

In case some files listed in the Attach2Cloud Attached File Report fall under the control of centrally managed usage policies, they appeared greyed out and users cannot modify the attached file properties under the control of the policies.

For instance if an Attach2Cloud centrally managed policy forces the upload of all files larger than 15 MB to OneDrive and if some files exceeding this size limit are displayed in the Attach2Cloud Attached File Control Center, they appear greyed-out and the “Upload to OneDrive” checkbox is checked and locked. Users can’t uncheck it.

These policies are registry parameters that can be centrally managed using Windows GPOs (Group Policies Objects) or any other administration solution enabling to centrally manage user registry parameters.
