The capability [[Capabilities/repository/local:view|View server repository]], which is allowed for the default roles of manager, course creator, teacher and non-editing teacher, ensures that the server files repository is listed in the file picker. This capability should be allowed together with the [[Capabilities/moodle/course:managefiles|manage files capability]] to enable users to access files used within a course.

When a file from the server files repository is re-used elsewhere on Moodle, the teacher has the option to make a copy (a new, unconnected version) or to create a shortcut or alias. See Working with files for more details.
