Fabasoft Cloud EditionsPermanent link for this heading

The Fabasoft Cloud is available in three different editions:

  • Professional
    Fabasoft Cloud Professional offers everything you need for document management and B2B collaboration.
  • Enterprise
    Fabasoft Cloud Enterprise includes all of the functionality of the Professional edition and provides additionally advanced authentication options, auditing, digital asset management, Teamroom transfer and custom forms.
    From the 2016 June Release the Enterprise edition includes workflow functionality that was reserved for the Superior edition until now.
  • Superior
    Fabasoft Cloud Superior includes all of the functionality of the Enterprise edition and allows the development of own tailor-made solutions.

Read access licenses are free of charge based on “fair use”. The fair use principle assumes ten read access licenses per license, which will be assigned to your organization with the 2016 June Release.

Note:

  • If you have licensed an old edition, you will be automatically upgraded and therefore also benefit from the advantages listed above at no extra cost.
  • Eventually existing active guests will be migrated to external members.
  • Apps that were directly assigned to users are now assigned via the organization.
  • The maximum number of used licenses per service package and billing period is shown in the License History field (“Mange Service Packages” action) for your convenience,

Working Efficiently With Long ListsPermanent link for this heading

The delay in the presentation of lists with many entries belongs to the past. When navigating in a list with more than 250 entries, not all entries will be loaded at once. When scrolling through the list, entries are loaded automatically when they are needed for the displayed area. Therefore the web browser can display the shown list area much faster, which brings advantages especially when using the detail view.

When navigating with the breadcrumb or the back functionality of the web browser, the recently opened section of the list is displayed. The keyboard navigation works also smoothly. Page up and Page down change the focus to the first or last visible entry. Home and End navigate to the first or last entry in the list. With Alt + F9 you can access the column header. Alt + A selects all entries as usual. The column filter also takes the entire list into account.

Although the Fabasoft Cloud Web Client now optimally supports long lists, you should avoid confusing lists anyway.

Possible Uses of the Context MenuPermanent link for this heading

You may know that the context menu can be opened for any entry in a list. The context menu provides different actions based on the selected entries. It can be opened with the right mouse button or a keyboard user can use the menu key or the shortcut Shift + F10.

Less well known is

  • that there is also a context menu available in the window background, which can be used, for example, to change the view.
  • that the context menu of the currently displayed document or folder can be accessed by right-clicking the name in the title bar.
  • that you can open the context menu in the document view over a thumbnail, video or audio element.
  • that you can also use the context menu on mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) with a so-called “long touch” (touch the desired area about two seconds).

Fabasoft Cloud ClientPermanent link for this heading

Keyboard OperationPermanent link for this heading

The Fabasoft Cloud Client can be fully operated using the keyboard. To get in the document overview of recently used documents, focus the notification icon and press the spacebar. Tab and arrow keys are used for navigation. The context menu for the individual entries can be opened via the menu key.

Synchronizing via the Web ClientPermanent link for this heading

The state of synchronized Teamrooms and folders is displayed in the web client on the right of the “Synchronize” action. This way you keep track of the synchronization state also in the web client.

In addition the CPU usage of the synchronization has been optimized. This has a particularly positive effect on the battery life of mobile devices.

Deleting Local Data via the Web ClientPermanent link for this heading

Deleting locally synchronized files can now be initiated via the web client. Once the Fabasoft Cloud Client connects to the server, the deletion will start. This possibility proves to be particularly useful when a mobile device is lost, or when an employee leaves the organization.

Users can execute the “Synchronization” command in the account menu to show the synchronized workstations. By clicking the "Delete Data From Workstation" button, the process is initiated.

Organization administrators can navigate to the corresponding member in the organization. The “Synchronization” action also shows the synchronized workstations of the user.
