View-only access
View-only licenses are now available for doQuments Enterprise Edition. View-only licenses are priced much lower than the normal full access licenses. Users with view-only licenses cannot make any changes to doQuments DBs. They can only query and view records/documents in a doQuments DB. Customers can purchase a mix of view-only and full access licenses. However at least one full-access license must be purchased. Customers who already own doQuments Enterprise Edition licenses can purchase view-only licenses because the licenses they currently own are full access licenses.

Any existing or newly created user can be marked as view-only using doQuments User Manager. A user marked as view-only will not be allowed to make changes to a doQuments DB when logged in. Also users not marked as view-only can temporarily login as view-only by checking the Login with view-only access box on the login dialog.

This feature is only available in the Enterprise Edition of doQuments 3.2 and higher.

Exporting of Document Package
Export documents as well as the indexing data, to a folder or as a zip file or as a Document Package (highly compressed file). You can even choose to encrypt the Document Package.

Import the documents and the indexing data from the Document Package or the zip file.

This feature is only available in the Professional and Enterprise Editions of doQuments 3.2 and higher.

Version 3.0.108 - 04 Mar 2004


Support for creation of PDF files

Document Check In/Check Out
The Check In/Check Out feature lets you block others users on the network from trying to edit a document that you are currently editing. When you open a document for editing it is “Checked Out”. Other users on the network will still be able to view this document but they will not be able to edit it. Another user can only open the document for editing after you have checked it in again.

This feature can be separately enabled/disabled for each database.

This feature is only available in the Enterprise Edition of doQuments 3.0 and higher.

Document Versioning
This feature allows you to create and retain multiple versions of the same document. Every time you check out, modify and then check in a document, doQuments will retain a copy of the older version and add the new modified document as a new version. You can have an unlimited number of versions for each document or set an upper limit for the number of versions. You can also set a different upper limit for each document.

This feature can be separately enabled/disabled for each database.

This feature is only available in the Enterprise Edition of doQuments 3.0 and higher.

Document Encryption
This feature allows you to store documents in an encrypted form. This eliminates the possibility of someone accessing the documents directly using Windows Explorer (bypassing doQuments). Encrypted documents can only be accessed using doQuments. Various popular and powerful encryption methods such as AES, TripleDES and Blowfish are supported with key lengths ranging from 128 bits to 256 bits.

This feature can be separately enabled/disabled for each database.

This feature is only available in the Enterprise Edition of doQuments 3.0 and higher.

Event Logging/Auditing
This feature allows you to log details about user actions. For example you can configure this feature so that whenever a document is deleted, details about the action are logged. Details logged include the name of the user performing the action along with the date and time of the action. Almost any action a user can perform in doQuments can be logged. You can choose the actions you wish to log.

This feature is only available in the Enterprise Edition of doQuments 3.0 and higher.

Enhanced Batch Scanning
The batch scanning tool in doQuments has been significantly enhanced with the addition of blank page detection and other options.

This feature is only available in the Professional and Enterprise Editions of doQuments 3.0 and higher.

Document Replace
You can now replace an existing document in doQuments with another document (instead of having to first delete the existing document and then adding a new document). This feature is useful for users who perform XCopy backups as with this feature the name and path of the file can remain the same after the replace operation.
Variable Height Input Boxes for Large Text Data Fields
You can now set the height of the Input Box for each Large Text data field, using the new option available on the first page of the Data Fields Wizard. You can now set the Input Box to display anywhere between 3 and 20 lines of text.
Indexing Assistant
The Indexing Assistant is a tool to assist you in indexing documents which are not displayed by the doQuments internal viewer (for e.g. MS Word .doc files). The Indexing Assistant is a floating window which enables you to view the underlying document while entering indexing data. This eliminates the need (while indexing) to switch back and forth between doQuments and the application in which the document in opened.
Specify Scan Area
Instead of doing a preview scan and then selecting an area on the preview image for the final scan, you can now directly specify the size of the page being scanned. You can choose from a list of common page sizes such as A4, A3 etc
Minor Enhancements
You will find hundreds of other small improvements everywhere in doQuments 3.0.
Restore from Archive menu option removed
Due to potential problems with new doQuments features, the Restore from Archive menu option has been removed from the Document menu of the doQuments Main Window and from right-click menu of the Storage Folder Manager window.
