Updates for Laserfiche 11 Self-Hosted

Laserfiche 11 introduces several new features to make it easier for users to find, work with, and share documents, as well as the introduction of direct share for self-hosted systems, and the release of Audit Trail 11. This release also includes numerous bug fixes and performance improvements.

Direct Share – Laserfiche direct share, now available for self-hosted systems, allows you to share content from the Laserfiche repository with external users through the web client. When you send documents through direct share, the recipient will receive a unique and anonymized URL that they can use to access the files for a limited period of time. You can add a password, and specify the number of days until the URL expires. The sender will receive notifications when the content was viewed, and they or a repository administrator can see the status of who shared it, with whom, and if and when it was accessed.

Web Client – The Laserfiche web client includes several new improvements to help you find and work with documents.
The search bar at the top of the folder browser now offers several new options for performing quick searches. You can now select a search you’ve recently run to run again, and choose to filter search results by folder location and date created or modified without needing to open the search pane. You can also search by template and field value from quick search.
We have also made it easier to preview images when browsing the repository. You can choose to view the contents of a folder or set of search results as icons. This will display images stored in the repository, such as jpg, bitmap, and png images as thumbnails, and will also display the first page of TIFF imaged documents directly in the folder browser, making it easier to quickly locate the document you want. Folder views are set on a per-folder basis.
Finally, the web client now includes the ability to perform a batch print. The print option will be available when you have selected multiple documents from a folder or set of search results. When you print, the documents will be combined into a single PDF file, which you can then print as you would any other document.

Audit Trail – Laserfiche Audit Trail 11 introduces a new audit reporting experience to make it easier to create and view audit reports. When adding columns to a report, available columns are now grouped together to make them easier to find. There are also many more columns, allowing you to view even more granular information about your repository activity. These include a set of Changes columns that pinpoint what changed during the audited operation. We have also updated the Audit Trail architecture to provide significantly improved performance.

Distributed Computing Cluster – Distributed Computing Cluster adds support for a new Workflow 11 activity that allows you to schedule PDF generation and OCR processing of repository entries. See More Information
