For a listing of features and enhancements in previous versions, see Previous Updates.

10.3.1

This update includes all enhancements provided in previous updates.

Persistent Search Fields

iManage Control Center now preserves the search fields you enter when searching for documents, workspaces, or trash. When you add or remove search fields while performing a search in Control Center, your settings are now automatically saved and will be present the next time you sign in and access the Documents, Workspaces, or Trash pages. This provides the advantage of not having to remember or reselect your search fields for subsequent searches.

Search fields are stored locally in the browser's cache for each individual library. If you switch to a different browser or to a different device, you will see the default search fields.

Read/Write folder creation permission changes

In this release, users with Read/Write access to workspaces with any type of default security now have the ability to create containers, such as folders and template folders, search folders, Share folders or tabs, at the root level of the workspace.

In previous releases, only users with Full Access to a workspace had rights to create folders and template folders, search folders, Share folders, or tabs.

The legacy Global setting Allow folder creation in public workspaces has been replaced in this release with the new Access rights required for creating folders under workspaces setting. The new setting enables you to set the following options:

  • Read/Write: Users with Read/Write access rights or higher to any workspace can create folders, search folders, Share folders, or a tab within the workspace, regardless of the default security of the workspace.

  • Full Access: Users with Full Access rights to any workspace can create folders, search folders, Share folders, or a tab within the workspace, regardless of the default security of the workspace.

NOTE:

For all Work 10 client applications (all except iManage Work classic clients such as DeskSite or FileSite):

If you want your users that have Read/Write access to workspaces to be able to create Share folders within these workspaces, you must set Access rights required for creating folders under workspaces to Read/Write.

See Folder administration tips for more information about this feature.

IMPORTANT:

Once you update this new setting in Control Center, the legacy setting will be overwritten and cannot be reverted. Afterward, you can only use Control Center to modify this setting.

Exclude document classes from index

NOTE:

This feature is available in your iManage Work environment if the Indexable option described below is visible in iManage Control Center.

iManage Work now offers the ability to exclude documents that are assigned to specified document classes from the full-text index. Some document classes may not provide useful information to readers. For example, documents used for OCR (optical character recognition) and COMPARE (an iManage tool for tracking changes within a document) contain system information related to those functions and tools. Therefore, this option enables you to exclude these documents from being returned in users' full-text searches. By default, the following document classes are not included in the full-text index: COMPARE and OCR.

This setting cannot be applied to document subclasses; whatever setting is applied to a document class applies also to its document subclasses.

To exclude or include a document class from being indexed:

  1. In iManage Control Center, navigate to METADATA > Classes / Subclasses.

  2. Right-click the document class and select Edit.

  3. Set the Indexable field to the appropriate setting:
    Yes: configures the system to include the contents of documents that are assigned to this class in the full-text index.
    No: configures the system not to include the contents of documents that are assigned to this class in the full-text index.

  4. Click Save.

NOTE:

This option should be set only when creating a new document class. Modifying this setting on an existing document class will result in inconsistent search results. For example, documents which were indexed prior to disabling this option would still be returned in a user's search results.
