Frontend Fundamentals

tiCrypt Frontend Overview

The front end of tiCrypt is the core of the user experience.

Unlike the intricate back end, the front end offers a user-friendly interface. It facilitates easy adoption for new users, enabling them to engage with the system.

tiCrypt users enjoy extended accessibility, as they can execute prompt commands directly from the user interface. This feature enriches the user experience within the virtual machine environment.

Users are given control of the platform to manage their space via permissions and features.

Concerning permissions, both sub-administrators and administrators possess significant customization options. Specifically, each user can access a vast array of 2 to the power of 56 permission combinations.

Frontend has three primary tabs on the top left, each having its sections:

Includes: Files, Users, Groups and Projects.

On the right, there are three sections which correspond to each user profile:
