ndOffice 2.5 Update - April 2019



What's New in ndOffice 2.5

User Features

Locked Documents

In ndOffice 2.5, documents can be locked to prevent changing the document. When a document is locked, you cannot edit the document’s content, change the metadata, add, remove versions, or edit version information.

Options available for locked documents are the following:

  • Open as read-only
  • Open as a new document
  • Email link
  • Email copy
  • Print
  • View profile details

NOTE: This feature will be fully functional when implemented in the web version of NetDocuments (May 2019).

Product Improvements

Enhanced Document Functionality

Search Subfolders

In the Advanced Search, the Search subfolders check box is added. By default, it is cleared and searching includes only the current folder.


Sort Columns

When sorting by columns in the ndOpen or ndSave dialog boxes, the entire content of the container is now sorted, not only the current page.

The Do not copy Flag

When you create a copy of a document (with Open as a new document, ndSave or other), the Do not copy attribute flag is respected and the content of the profile field is not copied to the new document.

Security Templates

NetDocuments now permits the use of up to 16 security templates.
