By default, the Microsoft Outlook client uses Client-side filing even if the server supports Server-side filing when:

  • Using the File option or 

  • Users drag-and-drop emails into the iManage Work panel 

If this option is turned off, Server-side filing is used, provided it's enabled. To turn on Server-side filing, your iManage Work administrator must install and configure the iManage Work Communications Server. Detailed instructions are provided in the iManage Communications Server for Exchange Administration Guide.


Client-side filing threshold option is no longer applicable.

Additionally, the following registry setting must be set on the iManage Work Server to enable Server-side filing:

  • Location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Interwoven\WorkSite\imDmsSvc\

  • Name: ServerSideFiling

  • Value: 1

For more information, refer to Client-side filing options section in iManage Work Desktop for Windows Customization Guide.
