Minor enhancements for the people using Next®, December 21

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
Classification added as search option in Next® Mailroom NEXT-4254

You can now search for the Document Classification when you use Search forms in Next® Mailroom. This is particular relevant if you want setup topic specific shared inboxes - e.g.  Auto related claims in an insurance company.

Default Google-like search with full-text optimized           


When you perform a full-text search in Next® it involves comprehensive linguistic features such as stemming, synonyms, and term proximity to find all possible combinations of any of the words you search for. The result is then presented in a ranked order, with the most relevant suggestions first. The more words you specify, the more documents you'll find.
When you perform such a search in an already ordered list of documents (typically sorted by date), this does not make sense. That is why we have changed the default search in all document lists to 'strict'. Strict, means the the result will only list documents where ALL the terms are found. The more words you search for the fewer documents you'll find. 

Power indexing enabled in Next® Process for Customs declarations NEXT-4277
Dramatically improved efficiency for the users verifying and correcting data on received documents.  

Edit a new copy now also available for documents on a process NEXT-4210
You may now use the functionality to Edit a new copy of a document, based on a document you have in your task list. 

Set to purchase invoice improved NEXT-4258
When you - in Next® invoices - set an invoice you have started as a cost invoice to be a purchase invoice, Next® will now assign the purchaser as the approver.  

Set to purchase and Set to cost, for multiple invoices NEXT-4257
You may now select multiple cost invoices, and set them to be purchase invoices, in one go. The same applies to Set to cost invoice.  A real time saver if you have many each day. 

Next® Mailroom processes made more resilient  NEXT-4269
If automatic indexing fails because of an error with the Transformation engine, a manual task is automatically generated for an operator to retry. Now Next® automatically retries after 3 hours.

For the techies

Not so much here for the technically interested.
