  • The account menu (your user name) has been restructured. In the “Advanced Settings” and “State” submenus, you will find the less frequently used commands.
  • Under “account menu (your user name)” > “Advanced Settings” > “Notifications”, you can define about which events you want to be informed. You can be informed either by e-mail or by events displayed in the Teamroom (“Show New Events” action).
    On the “Notifications” or “Disabled Notifications” tab, define for which Teamrooms or dashboards you want to receive events. For the objects entered, the setting applies to the entire hierarchy unless another setting has been made for a subordinate object.
  • When using screen readers, you can specify that well-known English terms are specially tagged to ensure correct pronunciation (“account menu (your user name)” > “Basic Settings” > “Accessibility” tab > “Prepare Foreign Language Expressions for Speech Output”).
  • The background context menu also contains the “Search” command.
  • Objects that are assigned to other Teamrooms can also be used as Teamroom templates. Make sure that the team members are authorized in the other Teamrooms to be able to use the templates.
  • In the properties of a Teamroom, in the Restrict the Downloading or Opening of Content on the Workstation field you can restrict the team members who are offered the actions for editing and downloading in the web browser client.
  • Search folders can be used to search for Wastebasket (Teamroom) in order to be able to empty also a large number of wastebaskets efficiently.
  • For search folders, the actions “Create Search Form”, “Edit Search Form” and “Properties” are also available. This allows you to easily configure search folders.
  • If you define a user-defined form as a file, you automatically have access to file-typical actions such as “Replace”, “Close”, “Cancel” and “Restore”.
  • A base form can be defined for user-defined forms. This way the form pages and fields of the base form are taken over. In addition, expressions can be defined for fields: compute visibility of field, compute value of field, compute changeability of field, handle changes of field and validate value.
  • When creating user-defined forms, you can drag and drop fields from one tab to another. Alternatively, you can use the context menu command “Move”.
  • The properties displayed on the “General” tab of objects have been reworked and consolidated.
  • As an alternative to selecting a version, you can specify a point in time in the time travel.
  • When downloading a folder, the generated ZIP file now contains the contents of the folder at top level and not the folder itself. This helps to reduce problems with long path names.
  • If standard background tasks of a category are already to be executed when the category is assigned, they are executed immediately and not delayed by an automatic task.
  • In the case of standard background tasks, you can use the Recalculate the Date When the Base Date Changes field to determine whether the execution time of the background task should be modified when the base date is changed. Background tasks that have not yet been executed are executed at the newly calculated time and background tasks that have already been executed are executed again.
  • When defining follow-ups, background tasks or retention periods, you can also select date properties of user-defined forms. The properties offered are filtered according to the context. You can also specify whether the period is subtracted from the base date or added to it (e.g. 3 days before “Valid to”, 2 years after “Created on/at”).
  • Downloading large files starts much faster because the consistency of the files is checked during the download and not before the start.
  • Any objects as favorites
    You can add any objects (for example, individual documents) to your favorites.
  • The W3C recommendation “SOAP Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism” ( is supported.
  • When importing e-mails (EML or MSG), attachments can now be extracted on the server side. Neither Microsoft Outlook nor the Fabasoft Folio Client is required on the client for this functionality.
