IRIS Docs 6.15 Release Notes

The latest version of IRIS Docs includes the following:

Product Enhancements

New Document Expiry section, to give you a simple way to view/set documents for expiry and expunge. Documents which are set to expire will also be displayed when opening from the expiry view or when viewing properties. This ensures you only keep what is required and meet your GDPR obligation.

Improved performance and scalability on expunge, this means that it has never been faster to expunge scheduled large batches of deleted documents. You can also schedule expunges to run out of work hours, which can be monitored and stopped at any time.

New Deleted Documents search, this includes document reference searching for expunging or restoring documents.

Copy user permissions to a new user, you now have the ability to create a new user by copying permissions from an existing user is now available. This saves a lot of time and reduces risk of accidentally giving wrong permissions.

Ability to hide group intrays, group intrays can now be hidden from the user interface, this is of particular benefit where the group exists for security rather than document distribution reasons. A checkbox item has been added to the group details dialog called ‘Display an intray for this group’ which toggles group intray visibility.

Granular control for Administration options, the Administration menu now allows for fine grained access control over each administrative section. This removes the need for users to be granted the ‘Global Administrator’ right, where only access to a subset of options is required. A new privilege preset section has been added called ‘Administration’, where users can be granted access to these individual administrative functions. These options are disabled for Global Administrators who inherit all privileges by default.

New Manage All Folders in Filing Cabinets privilege, a new privilege has been added that allows users to manage all filing cabinets and folders, without needing to be a Global Administrator. This new privilege will only be available for selection if the users’ privilege preset has the privilege ‘Filing Cabinets’ ticked. It will be listed under the ‘Advanced User’ section.

New Global Administrators section, with the advent of the new granular control of the Administration menu, the previous Admin Group option has been renamed and moved to a new section called ‘Global Administrators’ to clarify its purpose.

We have also fixed plenty of bugs!
