    Description: People manage and use their files/documents in social settings. However, current file systems do not consider social interactions that happen around files. For example, files that have been sent to many people are displayed in the same way as those that have never been sent. We argue that by capturing user activities around files, we can enhance user experience in managing their documents. In particular, presenting activity traces can help users comprehend their document collections better and recall the context of their documents. In this paper, we discuss our approach to providing a context-rich environment for document management.
