What's New in AsdeqDocs 2.0
Uploads to Server (Two-way Sync)
Changes to files can now be uploaded back to the server (two-way sync), meaning your mobile workforce can now contribute content no matter where they are. Because files in AsdeqDocs are encrypted on the device and use secure communication back to the enterprise, your files are safe and secure all the way back to your file repository.
"Open In" files directly into libraries and upload them to the server. You no longer need to email files back to your work account, or put files into cloud storage to get them back to the enterprise file repository. Now you can open files from other apps into AsdeqDocs and save them into a library, which will then upload to the Library's native location on the server.
A common question around uploading files back to the enterprise is how will AsdeqDocs handle data writing conflicts on busy file servers. Here's how.
New Uploads Policy
We have introduced the capability for devices to upload back to the back end file repositories. To allow system admins to control this feature we have added a new policy setting to control uploads globally.
Fileshare source locations now support uploads
If the above security policy has been enabled then source locations based on fileshares can be configured to allow file uploads from the device.
Move files from workspaces into libraries
Up until now you may have been using workspaces as a place to store notebooks and other files that you really wanted in a Library. Well, now you can move those files to the Library you wanted it in all along.
Move Notebooks into libraries to upload and share them
Hand written notes on paper and notes stored in cloud services are common sources of leaked information. Now you take notes encrypted inside AsdeqDocs and upload them from the device to your enterprise file repositories securely over SSL.
Notebook files are now viewable in desktop browsers
The Notebooks you write back to the file repository can be viewed and even edited without the iPad because they're saved as non-proprietary .html files.
Notebook files can be emailed
Your text notes and annotations can be emailed as html files that any recipient can view on with any web browser. That's quicker and easier than photocopying and distributing hand written notes.
Maps integrated into the main user interface
Maps are now integrated into the main app workflow. Click through from maps to see recently viewed documents by the location where they were viewed. This is perfect for finding which files you opened at that successful meeting downtown.
iPad mini and iPad 4 Support
iPad mini support has now been added to iPad 1-4 support. iOS 5.0 and above.
New Administration Dashboard
The new administration dashboard page now gives sys admins valuable server performance graphs for assessing server performance at a glance, and with the AsdeqDocs server management menu displayed for sys admins at login, support and management tasks are now only a single click away.
New audit types
With the introduction of file upload capabilities comes new auditing types to allow admins to monitor user upload actions too.
- v2.0 of the server replaces the old Welcome to AsdeqDocs file with a new simple to follow graphical-based tutorial to turn your users into AsdeqDocs experts in minutes, and provides a reference on the device so the answers to their user questions are already at their fingertips.
