Minor enhancements for the people using Next®, December 2020

We are happy to flag every new and enhanced feature in Next® with its own release note. Still, some of the enhancements are relevant to only a select few, and those we collect in this list for documentation.

For this release we have collected the following minor enhancements targeted the admins and end user:

Enhancement Issue
Expires date, now available i document lists

If you use Expiration policies in Next®, you may now have the expected date of expiration as a column in your document lists. You may sort and limit you lists based on this date. Together with Export to Excel, this may help you manage document expiration.  


Fly-over for exact date and time
When you see, what we call human time in Next® - 1 hour ago, yesterday, and 2 weeks ago - we do so to make Next® more friendly. Sometimes, you may actually need the exact date and time. Place the mouse over the time, and Next® will show you a fly-over with the exact date and time.  Best of both worlds.


Correct handling of PDFs originally received as image-only PDFs 


With the Next® PDF Archive Option in place, Next® will automatically OCR any image-only PDF you archive. The text version is now archived as a new revision of the document, in order to preserve the original document you received. Besides being more archive-correct, it also let's our Quick-edit PDF function more consistently.  

For the techies

Not so much here for the technically interested.

Commercial terms and conditions
