More Features for Windows Explorer with DocuWare
Beyond this, there are many other useful features that the Windows Explorer Client supplies directly within Windows Explorer:
Teamwork with Version Management
Let’s say that you and your colleagues are all working with the same document. When everyone stores their own document version in the file system – just sit back and wait for the chaos to begin! DocuWare ensures that access to documents is controlled, so that only the most current version of a document can be edited. Once edited, DocuWare stores the document as the new version.
Stapling Documents in a Basket
You can use Windows Explorer to access your standard basket. Individual documents can be sorted and stapled together here and then indexed and stored with a single click.
In order to stamp documents, open them right from Windows Explorer into the Web Client Viewer. Any features you might have with our regular viewer will be ready to use.
