ndClick 1.4 for Windows streamlines your ability to work with documents in NetDocuments. It facilitates the handoff from the web to desktop applications (like MS Office, ndOffice, Outlook, etc.) and helps to ensure that your changes are uploaded immediately to NetDocuments and checked-in so they are ready for the next person As a reminder, you can always find more information and download it on the ndClick Product Page.

ndClick 1.4 introduces new advanced authentication functionality, ensuring that documents are securely transferred from the web to your computer. ndClick now requires a user to log in before documents can be transferred. See ndClick Advanced Authentication for detailed authentication flow. This feature is enabled on Repository Administration > Security Center > Advanced Authentication > Authentication tab. Once there, you'll see a checkbox to "Enable Advanced Plugin Authentication for multi-user environments" and then a Save button. Note that this setting is primarily for muli-user environments (Citrix, RDS, etc.) and is not normally needed in single-user environments.
This feature primarily ensures that users on a multi-user environment maintain strict communication only between their session of NetDocuments and their session/instance of ndClick and allows for use of higher ports often found in multi-user environments. It also works hand-in-hand with the new Browser Extension (see below for more information).
Browser Extension 1.4
ndClick 1.4 works with the Browser Extension versions 1.4+. ndClick is required for use of Browser Extension 1.4 and the Browser Extension is included in the ndClick 1.4 installation package by default. The Browser Extension can also be installed via the Chrome store.
When ndClick 1.4 is installed, users may right-click on the ndClick icon in the system tray to display the following menu:
The Settings menu includes options to change the service region, establish proxy settings, and enable/disable extended support logging:
Select the service with which you wish to connect and click OK. From the right-click menu, choose Log in to open the login dialog:
The new login and authentication will ensure that documents transferred via ndClick will be securely handed off to the correct user.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Users must be logged in to the same NetDocuments service with the same user account in both ndOffice and ndClick. If they are not logged in as the same user (or are not logged in to ndOffice), they will see the following message:
