Happy Halloween! Hope you’re ready to fill your goody bags because we’ve got lots of tech treats for you.
Whether you’re in the office or on the move, we’ve made it easier for you to get dead accurate comparison in seconds.
With Compare Server 9.5, the server application has been upgraded and now has the same comparison functionality as the Workshare 9.5 desktop application. Plus, we’ve made it easier to perform a fresh install – you now can install it all with a single bundle installer. To upgrade, contact your Customer Success Manager or get in touch with Workshare Support.
For iPhone and iPad users, we’ve added a new option so you can choose to only download files to your briefcase when you’re connected to WiFi. And if you’re using iOS 11, you can sync files with Workshare by dragging and dropping them into the iOS 11 file manager app. As a bonus goody, we’ve made it easier to share your files by developing a new “Email link” option, which opens a new email with a link to the file inside. Get the latest iPhone/iPad app. Sweet!
If you’re on your desktop and you’re using Windows 10, we’ve added the Workshare shortcut to the root of the Windows Explorer navigation pane for easy access, matching what users on earlier versions of Windows see. If you don’t have auto-updates for the desktop app turned on, you can get the latest update for the desktop app here.
A sweet treat for you
Are you using iManage Work 10, Word Online or Google’s GSuite (Docs & Drive) and wishing you could have fast, accurate comparison you can trust? We’ve spent 16 years perfecting our document comparison software and now we’re bringing it to your core applications in the cloud.
We’re running an early adopter program, so you can get a sneak peek at the BETA version of Compare Everywhere and have your say about what’s working and what’s not. To find out how to join, contact Francesco Burns, our Senior Product Manager.
You need to prevent data loss however you share, so we’ve been building greater compatibility and flexibility into Protect Server and the desktop app.
When you’re using on-premise Protect Server, you have the option to use the Workshare Routing Agent, which ensures both internal and external recipients receive the same versions of attachments. Our first release of the Workshare Routing Agent that’s independent of a Protect Server release, version 4.0, adds compatibility with Exclaimer. Find out what's new in the Workshare Routing Agent 4.0, and to get this lightweight add-on for free, contact your Customer Success Manager or get in touch with Workshare Support.
When you’re using the desktop app and you have Protect installed, you can clean metadata from your documents and convert them to PDF - no matter how you add them to Workshare. The option to clean/convert the documents you’re adding is now consistently available. And, if you have Professional 8 installed, you can select files from your DMS directly from the desktop app, just like Professional 9 and 9.5 users can. Get the latest update for the desktop app here, if you don’t have auto-updates turned on.
Workshare Transact is the simple, effective way to control every document for every deal, allowing you to reduce the number of hours it takes to deliver a perfect deal closing. We’ve been focusing on making sure it performs at its best globally with loading times that are 44% faster.
We’ve also made it easier for you to receive the deal updates you care about. Now, by default, you’ll receive a daily digest email. The digest is sent every 24 hours and summarizes the deal activity that’s taken place in that time so you have all the information you need in one place.
If you’d rather get a notification for each activity as it happens or turn off notifications altogether, you still can. Go to Deal actions > Email settings and select your preference. Find out more.
Go on, indulge a little
Workshare’s new Compare Everywhere technology is now integrated into Transact.
If you love redlines as much as we do and want to try out this BETA feature, contact Transact@workshare.com
Spoil yourself tonight! We’ll see you next time. Happy haunting!
