IBM i Access Client Solutions: IFS Properties
Dawn May reviews the improved "Properties" feature added to the IFS support in ACS.
By Dawn May09/11/2018
With the 188.8.131.52 ACS update, Properties is much improved; similar to Navigator, you will find the General, Storage, Use, and Security tabs.
But Navigator still wins the granularity contest, because Navigator can also show you the jobs using the file with a Details button, which then allows you to work with the jobs. This feature may be absent because ACS does not have the work management tasks that Navigator has to display information about the job, although it would be nice to display the job name and then allow ACS to link to that job’s properties in Navigator; perhaps I should submit an RFE.
