Version 3.0.108 - 04 Mar 2004


Support for creation of PDF files
doQuments now supports saving of scanned documents as PDF files in addition to the already supported formats like BMP, TIFF, JPEG and PNG.
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.

Support for MS SQL Server based doQuments DBs
Create MS SQL Server based doQuments DBs. You can still choose to create MS Access based doQuments DBs if required. If the volume of data grows or for any other reason you can convert a MS Access based doQuments DB to a MS SQL Server based doQuments DB at any time.

This feature is only available in the Enterprise Edition of doQuments 2.0 and higher.

doQuments DB List
The doQuments DB List is a central list of all the doQuments DBs that you work with. doQuments DBs you create can be added to the doQuments DB List. If you use the doQuments DB List you can avoid using the Windows File Open to locate and open a doQuments DB. You can simply choose the doQuments DB you want to open from the doQuments DB List.
Pages
If your doQuments DB contains a large number of fields it can be cumbersome to scroll the data panel to view/edit all your data. Pages help you solve this problem, by letting you create multiple pages and assigning groups of fields to each page. To view a particular set of fields you simply choose a page from the new Active Page drop down list. Moreover a field can be assigned to more than one page.
Export doQuments DB
Data can now be exported from one doQuments DB to another similarly structured doQuments DB.
Parameterized Queries
Queries can now request values for their conditions when you execute them. For example instead of creating a query like Name = “John”, you can now create a query which will prompt you for the Name whenever you execute it.

You can now search for and add multiple documents to the doQuments DB in a single step. Options are available to add all found documents to single record or create a new record for each document.

This feature is only available in the Professional and Enterprise Editions of doQuments 2.0 and higher.

Scan a stack of documents at once with the batch scanning features. Scanners with Automatic Document Feeders are now fully supported.
