As end user you can expect the following new features.

The New Create DialogPermanent link for this heading

The new create dialog fits seamlessly into the cloud design and offers better usability, especially on cell phones.

The following options are available:

  • Change View
    Using the “Change View” button, you can specify the card view or the detail view for the selection list.
  • Filter by
    In the drop-down list, you can select a category (e.g. “Microsoft Office”) to narrow down the selection list accordingly. Alternatively, type a filter term to limit the selection list to entries where the filter term appears either in the name or in the assigned category.
  • Selection List
    The selection list is grouped by “Favorites”, “Templates” and “Object Classes”. To create an object, click on the corresponding entry. Depending on the object class, you can either enter only the name or already additional metadata.

Of course, the create dialog can also be operated completely by keyboard.

Sending Meeting Invitations DirectlyPermanent link for this heading

Calendars allow you to manage events and tasks, and to share them with other team members.

If you have specified at least one attendee, you can use the “Create and Send” button to create the event and also send an e-mail to the defined attendees with the event as an ICS file.

Note:

  • An event can be sent subsequently via the “Send Event” context menu command.
  • If a sent event is updated or deleted, you can send an event update or event cancellation.
  • Via the sent e-mail the event can be opened, accepted, provisionally accepted or declined. The respective status is displayed for the event in the Attendees field.

Transferring TeamroomsPermanent link for this heading

When transferring Teamrooms, define in the Access Rights of the Source Teamroom field the access rights to the source Teamroom after the transfer.

  • Keep Access Rights of Previous Team Members
  • Restrict Access to the Members of My Cloud Organization
  • Restrict Access to the Team Members With “Full Control”

In addition, define in the Dissolve Source Teamroom field, whether the source Teamroom should be dissolved.

    The Teamroom will not be dissolved.
  • Assign Activity “Dissolve Teamroom”
    A workflow activity will be assigned to the specified recipient at the specified time.
  • Dissolve Automatically
    The Teamroom will be dissolved at the specified time.

Note:

  • With the “Transfer Teamroom” > “Define Dissolve Period” context menu command, you can also subsequently specify whether and when the source Teamroom should be dissolved.
  • With the “Transfer Teamroom” > “Open in <name of installation>” context menu command, you can navigate directly to the target Teamroom. The corresponding action is also available for objects in the Teamroom.

Digitally Signing DocumentsPermanent link for this heading

In the course of digitally signing documents, stamps can now also be applied. An overview of the stamps provided by the organization administrator can be found under “account menu (your user name)” > “Advanced Settings” > “My Signatures”.

The “Sign” context menu command is offered for documents that have already been closed, and the “Sign and Close” context menu command is offered for documents that have not yet been closed. The “Sign” workflow activity also offers the respective work step. A PDF document with the digital signature is created and saved as final form with the document.

Note: The signing functionality is available in the “Fabasoft Cloud Enterprise” edition and higher.

Common ImprovementsPermanent link for this heading

  • In the Sex field, you can also select “Diverse”.
  • Objects can be closed not only via a workflow activity, but also via the “Tools” > “Close” context menu command.
