Whats New in v8.0

New Features


Digital Signatures

Digital Signatures use unique digital certificates issued to individuals for signing documents. Digital signatures are legally binding and are a preferred method of signing documents for compliance with various standards & regulations as they preserve the document’s integrity (Signatures are invalidated if any change is made after signing), verifies the identity of the signer and provides for non-repudiation of signatures within and beyond your organization. This add-on enables Docsvault users to sign, authorize and approve electronic documents without printing them out and signing them by hand – thus saving paper, time and money. Digital Signatures help in implementing seamless workflows that are uninterrupted from the burdens of having to print and rescan a document just to get approver’s signatures.


Restrict Folder Templates for a Cabinet

Maintain consistency of your first level folder structure by specifying a predefined folder structure to be used under any cabinet. This will mandate the use of a predefined folder template at the root level of a cabinet when creating new top level folders.


Support for UTF fonts

Docsvault now supports UTF characters expanding its support for languages around the world  


New Log

New User Connection Log allows the administrator to monitor successful and failed logons and logout attempts made by users. This log can also be exported/printed out as a report.


Concurrent User Licenses

New concurrent licensing model introduced with this release can allow multiple users to share a common pool of license. This type of licensing is useful when you have occasional users who can share a connection license and do not need a dedicated license. 





Task Panel in MS Word

You are now able to add or edit Profile/indexes, notes and description of a document opened for editing right within MS Word


Title Bar in MS Office Applications

You are now able to view Docsvault file ID and version number along with the file name in the title bar of MS Office applications


Email Capture Add-on

Docsvault now also supports POP protocol for email capture

Each capture job can have multiple rules defined with multiple storage destinations. This allows for proper filing of documents in their respective folders based on predefined rules. Example: Automating storage of project emails in corresponding project communication folders. 

You are now able to capture desired emails starting from specified date

You are now able to clone rules and jobs instead of creating new ones from scratch


Advanced Profiles Add-on

Consolidated database connection links to reuse the same connection for different primary/dependent indexes  

Standardized database query syntax for all types of database such as: MYSQL, Oracle, SQL Server, etc.

Breaking Change:
Since the “Advanced Profiles” add-on has been structurally changed for enhancements, all external profiling rules will be deleted during the upgrade. Please make a note of all such profiles and their settings before proceeding with the upgrade to easily recreate these jobs post upgrade.
Note that no previous profiling data will be lost. This change only applies to customers using the “Advanced Profiles” add-on for fetching index values from third party databases.
