DAVupDoc 3.5 update

Our DAVupDoc content uploader program has been updated to run on Windows 2008 Server and Windows 7. While it runs in 32 bit mode, it will gracefully install on 64 bit Windows operating systems. If you're using DocuShare's VFS (Virtual File System) add-on, you can use DAVupDoc to file your documents where you want them, titled as you like, with metadata, and expiration and deletion dates set for archiving and destruction. This is template based with a template designer to reduce your learning curve. You can then run it in command line mode using the VBscripts provided so background production mode is provided. We'd like to hear from you if you're using VFS as we're considering adding some functionality for such sites. Contact us for details.  You'll find DAVupDoc at CriteriaFirstWare.

DocuShare 6.5.3 Patch 3

This was just released and is cumulative of all the prior patches and updates for version 6.5.3. We've installed it on our primary DocuShare server. You'll find it on the DocuShare User Group site: View the Release Notes for fixes and enhancements.

DocuShare 6.5.3 High Scalability Kit

If your DocuShare site has grown quite a lot over the years, you may be interested in the DocuShare 6.5.3 High Scalability Kit which is recommended for any customer solution expecting to scale to more than five million documents. The kit includes:

  • multiple IDOL indexing engine instances
  • distributed (off-box) search engine
  • multiple content storage volumes / drive letters
  • partitioned database for performance / scale
  • enhanced DS Software Support
  • optional professional services support

Any DocuShare or DocuShare CPX customer who upgrades to DocuShare 6.5.3 (or who has upgraded to DocuShare 6.5.3) is entitled to receive the High Scalability Option for DocuShare 6.5 at no additional cost, but you must pay the annual support and maintenance for the High Scalability Option. This is required to be implemented in conjunction with Xerox DocuShare Professional Services, so there will be a charge added for such services.

You may also want to consider moving much of your content to a DocuShare Archive Server to reduce the load on your primary DocuShare server. You'll likely want our DocuShare Archive Assistant to sweep through your collections and set the expiration_date property for archival and to set a deletion date property for eventual deletion. For more information, refer to your DocuShare User Guide and the section titled "Archiving Content". Call or write if you have questions or concerns.

DocuShare CPX Content Rules

DocuShare CPX provides a wizard to guide you in creating a content rule. Using the wizard, you provide a brief description of the content rule, select the event that triggers the action, select the action to run, and enter settings specific to the selected action. You can sense new or changed documents; initiate either document routing slips or advanced workflows configured for gathering contributions, getting approval(s), and notifying others; and export your documents for external processes. Content Rules can play a key part in your daily work processes. Check your DocuShare User Guide for the "Using content rules" section and call if you'd like an overview.

Case study of the month

Video Case Study: Comparing DocuShare to SharePoint and why this customer decided to use DocuShare as his organization's centralized repository.  "SharePoint requires more work and custom programming, therefore more time and money, than DocuShare."
