The following improvements will allow you to manage your administration settings more easily:

1. A global design makeover
2. An additional section for library management
3. Storage accounts statistics and management
4. Data export from the audit log
5. More security for your third party applications

"Prevent from downloading" at the folder, document class and library level

With this new feature, get better control on what your viewers can download, copy or print.

You can now apply Google Drive’s “prevent viewers from downloading, copying and editing” option to all AODocs documents in a folder, document class, or library.

Set the language format for your workflow notification email

As an administrator, you can localize the format of the AODocs properties and dates in workflow emails according to a selected language. Users from all over the world can now receive easier to read workflow notification emails, with labels, dates and numbers formatted in their local language.

Guide your users with properties tooltips

In the properties tab, a description (or tooltip) can now be configured for all custom properties. End users can then mouse over a “?” icon and read the description.

Note: Tooltips are only available in the AODocs interface.

Get more context with your related documents by displaying their properties

At the document level, you can now customize the Relation panel and display more information directly in the AODocs document.

The properties of the related documents displayed can be configured by the library administrator.

Customize the document list view visibility

We are happy to announce the release of the most requested feature of our Community: library administrators are now able to select which users can see specific list views.

If the “Show in Library navigation menu” option is checked, you can select which "role" has access to the list view. The role list is configured from the “Roles” section in the library administration. You can also use a Google group

Version control UI improvement

The “Version” menu allows the user to find and manage the list of document versions.
This “Version” tab is now a specific tab located on the side bar of the document, below the properties tab.

Folder picker improvement

Clicking on the folder icon allows library contributors to move a document or a folder into another specific folder.
From the revamped pop-up, you can select the target folder in which you want to put your items. You can also create new folders inside the current library.
