What's New in v8.2.1030

New Features


Docsvault Mobile App

Docsvault Mobile is a free mobile app for iOS and Android devices that enable you to securely access documents stored on your Docsvault Server from anywhere. Navigate your entire repository, search, create new folders, upload new documents captured using  your camera, add to favorite, edit notes and description, view profile/indexes, etc. on the GO!


A new naming template allows you to automatically name the file being imported and add description or notes based on index values entered by users.



Dynamic Index Values:

oYou can now setup index fields to fill up dynamically based on current date/time or current username

oNew auto increment/decrement for numeric index values (ex. for auto increment of revision #)

oNew inherited index values (or sticky values) that flow from parent folder to its sub-items

oYou can even lock an index to prevent further editing once it has been assigned during the import process.


User Defined Validations:

oIndex Field Validation Masks: You can now apply a predefined validation mask or create your own validation rule for index values
(ex. social security #, phone # etc.)  

oA new unique index feature to avoid duplicate index values.
