13.2 Update Notice for the April 25, 2013 release - US and EU datacenters.



The next Update of the NetDocuments Service will begin on the evening of April 25, 2013, beginning at midnight Eastern time for the US datacenter and April 25, 2013 beginning at 10:00 PM London time for the EU datacenter.  Please make sure you refresh your browser with the Ctrl+F5 to clear any old cache.  The main visual change will be the blue Search ribbon.  The Advanced Search is now accessed with the icon to the right of the magnifying glass and email icons. Use the down arrow next to Help, for a quick review of all the Search ribbon changes.

Please make sure you check out the related article called 13.2 Update Tips for more information.  Also make sure you have the latest client software as shown in this article. The Tips article is also located in the Announcements section.

You will notice that we have changed the format we are using for the Update notice.  Several months ago, we changed our product development methodology and as part of that change we are also changing the Update notices so they highlight the new items and adjustments that will impact users the most. You will see that there are fewer items in the list because we are not listing all of the minor changes and bugs we have fixed.  Rather than include detail to that level, we are focusing on the changes that will be new or different for users to make sure users are aware of those new and changed items.  If you have been waiting for a bug to be fixed, please see if it works with the new Update and let NetDocuments Support know if it is still an issue.

A number of very helpful changes have been made in this Update.  They are summarized below.  For example, we have focused primarily on improved email usability by adding and improving access to emails including an improved email search and a new My Email list.  Another popular request included s that search results can now contain up to 10,000 items.

We thank you for all of your input and feedback and appreciate your using the NetDocuments Service.
