Using Object Linking and Embedding (OLE)

With 2.2 release, insert, edit, and save OLE objects between WEPP products. The destination document has OLE support, which you can store on NetDocuments Web App. However, a local source document must exist.

Experiencing the Improved Offline Mode

When working in the offline mode, in the Activity Center, the active files are shown, while inactive files are unavailable as they are no longer in the Echo folder (based on the specified retention settings).

Using the Improved Intuitive Search

With ndOffice 2.2, the workspace selector is now consistent with the NetDocuments Web App where you can enter the search criterion from inside the string and when the string begins with (support ‘contains’ searches).

Enter up to 50 symbols when searching lookup values even if the cabinet is set to use less than 50 characters, which does not slow down the search.

  • Fixed an issue where after opening and closing several Excel or Adobe documents on different tabs at once, left the statuses in the Activity Center incorrect.
  • Fixed an issue where profile values which are children of another value or are defaulting from another value appear as red, indicating they are incorrect, even though they are correct.
  • Fixed an issue where different suggested locations appear in Outlook with various display names and appearance (when the email name is the same).
  • Fixed an issue where another value was automatically applied in a workspace-based attribute field if the initial value was deleted/closed on the NetDocuNetDocuments Web App, and there is a value with an identical key/beginning of key/description in Lookup.
  • Fixed an issue where the user cannot save because the profile templates drop-down is now not available if the user cannot save there, and an exception does not appear if the user chooses to apply the previous profile in such cases.

  • When you leave documents in a not checked-in state and you also:

    • If the associated Office application is open, use new registry settings to determine when to show a dialog box where the user can check the documents back in, or reopen them so they can be properly closed.
  • The file type DOCM is not changed when opened from the local machine upon saving to NetDocuments Web App.
