Version 10.05.01.11 - 31 May 2016


SOHODOX Registration method modified for Client install

In previous versions of SOHODOX, users had to apply their Registration key on all the machines on which SOHODOX Desktop client was installed. This was hectic for customers with large installations of SOHODOX Desktop client. In this version onwards, you will only need to apply or update the Registration key on the Server machine.

Ability to disable automatic search and highlight in documents

A new option has been added in the Options Dialog > Systems Options to control automatic search and highlight in documents after a quick search.

Version 10.04.01.08 - 29 Apr 2016


New utility to automatically install and configure SQL Server Express 2014

Previous versions of SOHODOX required first time users to handle the installation and configuration of SQL Express 2012.

We have highly simplified this process by creating a utility to automatically install SQL Server Express 2014 and configure SOHODOX to work with SQL Express.

Improved Client server configuration

In a multi-user environment, previously in case of a new install or an upgrade users were asked to either specify the location of the ‘multi-user.gdx’ file or manually copy the ‘multi-user.gdx’ file from the Server machine to the Client machine. This process is now completely automatic.

SOHODOX will now automatically pick up the multi-user.gdx from the Server installation and replace it in the Client installations.

Determining whether SOHODOX is installed in Client/Server

Previously it was difficult to find out if SOHODOX on a particular machine was installed in Server or Client mode. The ‘About’ dialog now displays whether SOHODOX on a particular machine is installed in Server or Client mode.

Version 10.03.02.03 - 30 Mar 2016


ITAZ SOHODOX Services set to Automatic (Delayed Start) on Windows 10

Previously, the ‘Startup Type‘ for SOHODOX Services were set to Automatic which means to immediately start the services as soon as Windows starts up.

Users using Windows 10 or those who recently upgraded to Windows 10 reported problems related to the SOHODOX Services being in stopped state after a restart. This prevented SOHODOX Desktop client from starting up.

Windows 10 in its attempt to speed up the boot process seems to be causing some services not to start (or somehow shutdown right after starting). We have seen this affect SOHODOX Services as well as SQL Server service.

We have now set the Startup Type for the SOHODOX Services to Automatic (Delayed Start) which will start SOHODOX services after giving priority to other services. This fixes the problem.

Version 10.03.01.01 - 15 Mar 2016


Hiding All Documents & Settings nodes

Some customers felt that the All Documents node needlessly confused some of their users and that the Settings node is only required for admin users. This has been a long standing request and we are happy to have finally implemented it.

You can now hide the All Documents as well as the Settings node in the Navigation Pane for non-admin users.

You can access these options from the System Options section of the Options dialog.

Criteria changed for Built in Saved Search

The built in saved search Documents added by me recently was incorrectly listing documents only from the previous month. Now this search list the most recently added documents regardless of the date.

Backup utility

We have built a new simple and quick backup utility to backup just the SOHODOX database without the documents.

One usage scenario for this is

Many customers now have hundreds of gigabytes of documents being managed with SOHODOX. An update rarely changes the file store (where documents are stored). So we ask customers to backup just their DB before installing an update. This utility makes this task much quicker.

Of course you can also use this utility for regular backup of your SOHODOX DB. Just remember to separate backup the File Store for the DB.

This utility is different from the SOHODOX Backup & Restore Utility which has been available for many years (it backs up both the DB and the documents). In the future we may merge these two utilities.

Please contact us at [email protected] to receive the utility.

Version 10.00.00.18 - 22 Dec 2015


SOHODOX FRAMEWORK Enhanced

The underlying framework of SOHODOX has been completely overhauled. This has taken us a couple of years to accomplish and we are very proud of what we pulled off. Since the framework is behind the scenes, in this release you may not see too many visible changes. However our work on the framework enables us to add new exciting features faster, fix reported bug fixes faster and release updates faster.

We have a long list of new features and enhancements lined up for the immediate future. If all goes well you will start seeing new SOHODOX releases with new features every few weeks!

Some of the new features in this release are listed below

Edit a saved query

You can now edit saved queries in SOHODOX

Search & Highlight Text (beta)

You can now see the values you searched for, highlighted within the found documents. This feature only works with PDF files and is currently in beta (we are working on improving the implementation).

Document can now be part of multiple folders (Beta)

A document can now be part of multiple folders. Simply press the ALT key, while dragging and dropping a document from one folder to another folder. The document will now appear in both folders. Please note two copies of the document are not made. So if you delete the document it will go away from all the folders it was in. This feature is currently in beta and its implementation may change based on user feedback.

New password Policies added to SOHODOX

3 policies have been added into Settings>>System Settings>>Password Policy

1. Password must contain at least one number
2. Password must contain at least one symbol
3. Password must contain at least one uppercase character

Auto-Logout feature

You can now set an inactivity timeout for individual apps in SOHODOX
