Add SharePoint sites

Let’s take another example. I have a SharePoint site called My site. Under this site, I have a Documents library. Inside this library, I have a folder called Compositeur Digital UX, which contains universes.

Note : Your site’s library must contain a Compositeur Digital UX folder at its root.


  1. On the app start page, click on your Add location...
  2. Click on Teams or SharePoint library
  3. Enter the name of your SharePoint site.

Add local folders

By default, your universes are all stored under a single folder of your personal computer. This folder is <HD>\<username>\Documents\Compositeur Digital UX.

Depending on your enterprise configuration, you could have an access to a shared storage system (e.g. Microsoft SharePoint, Google Drive, Dropbox, ect). You can add these folders as Compositeur Digital folders. It means that when you start Compositeur Digital UX, the system will check if there are universes in all the folders you have set.

Using a shared storage system is very convenient to share your universes with all the people who need to use Compositeur Digital UX.

To add existing Compositeur Digital folders:

Add local folders

  1. On the app start page, click on Add location...
  2. Click on Local folder
  3. Pick your folder.
  4. That’s all 😄

USB Keys

When you connect a USB key to your device, Compositeur Digital UX wil automatically check if the USB Key contains a Compositeur Digital UX folder at its root. If there is such a folder, a source will automatically be added.

A kiosk mode is available in the app. This mode is adapted to device which are used as a public terminal.

When the kiosk mode is enabled, it reduces the actions which can be triggered in Compositeur Digital UX : the user can only open a universe and annotate documents. Saving is disabled, and sharing actions as well. It is not possible to import documents, or to create a selection. Blanksheets and notes are not available.

Kiosk mode workspace

The workspace has a limited set of functions available. The side menu allows you to change the ink or the quit the workspace. Selection is not available, and import functions are disabled too.
