We’re pleased to announce that AODocs version 46 is planned to be released soon (February 2018).

Please find below the list of changes and features that will impact the end-user and administrator experience.

Major features

Improvements to the AODocs homepage

We made several more improvements to the AODocs homepage:

  • You can star libraries and then display only your favorites.
  • You can sort your libraries by the last time you accessed them.
  • You can filter by one or more library type (before AODocs R46, Team Folders and Secured Folders were grouped together).
  • There are new icons to identify the different library types.
  • The library creation page has been redesigned.

  • We migrated more actions to the new action bar, notably the Notify users option. The Notify users pop-up has been enhanced. You can select specific users or groups with access to the document.

  • When you create a document, if there are mandatory fields (the document title and/or mandatory properties) that haven’t yet been filled in, a progress bar indicates how many  mandatory fields remain to be filled in.

  • You can search for documents which have invalid property values. This can occur if a library administrator has introduced a new validation rule or changed an existing one since the value was set.

Deprecation

  • In AODocs R46 we removed the Draft ${documentTitle} option from the class configuration. (It was already removed for workflow states.)
  • Workflow publication V1 gets closer to full deprecation: the former options can no longer be manually updated except towards migration to V2.
