This article describes the various settings available to users from their Settings > Application Settings menu.
The name order selected here will be used in all displays that show a list of user names. For example, on the access list of a document or folder, a user can change the names to be first name then last name, or vice versa.
PDF Viewing enables faster web viewing of PDF files by streaming data one page at a time. This means you do not need to wait for an entire PDF file to download before viewing. If you only have Adobe Reader, you should check this. If you have Acrobat, you should not check this. Disabling this feature forces NetDocuments to push (download) the entire document to you before it can be opened and edited. You can use the View in Browser option for PDF Viewing at any time if you just want to view the PDF.
NOTE: Some PDF documents cannot be streamed. That is an option set when the PDF is created. PDFs created with the newer versions (6.0+) of Adobe Professional or Standard have streaming set by default.
Gleam Setting in days
A gleam (blue star) appears on any document or ShareSpace that has been created or modified by another user. You can indicate the number of days that the gleam should remain when a document has been edited by another user.
You can set which workspace list (Favorite or Recent) is the default when importing and filing documents.
Desktop Email Integration
Whenever you email a document from within NetDocuments, NetDocuments uses its own simple HTML email form. There is a simple address book capability, but there is not a WYSIWYG interface.
To access your own email application's (Outlook) address book and interface, turn on desktop email integration. NetDocuments will launch your email application's New Email feature to deliver the document(s).
This setting allows users to File documents in multiple locations as well as Unfile documents from a folder (as opposed to Moving or Copying them). This can only be used if the Cabinet is set by an administrator to not Force File documents into folders. Check with your Cabinet Administrator on whether you can use this option.
This setting determines how links open when clicking on them. The two options are 1) View the document in the browser OR 2) download and check out the document. It is only available in non-ActiveX browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
This optional component will open and check out the document in its native application, and then guide you to check it back into NetDocuments. Requires the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. Learn more
Browser Search Box
This option allows a user to add NetDocuments as a search provider for their web browser.
By making this your default search provider, you can search NetDocuments directly from your browser search box without having to begin in NetDocuments. So if I were looking for an email that was related to me, I could enter John Doe msg and it would locate those related emails.
Users will have to ensure the search add-on is enabled under Tools > Manage Add-ons > Search Providers in IE.
Select the number of items to display by default on search result pages. Users can choose from 10, 20, or 50 items.
