Minor enhancements for the Next® admins and specialists, January 2021

It is no secret that the primary target of our enhancements are the business users, or end users, of Next®. Still, providing ease of use, and increased productivity to those who admin or configure Next® also make great sense.

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

Enhancement Issue

Decryption Policies can be enabled/disabled
To make it easier to work with automatic decryption of secure emails in Next®, you can now enable/disable a Decryption Policy with a single click. 


Added support for TLS when sending emails
Next® is enhanced to support sending secure email using TLS in addition to the existing SSL option.  


Next® Transformation Engine is better at handling exceptions  


We have improved the handling of situations where the Next® Transformation Engine fails to create a PDF. It is important that the solution is resilient to any such foreseeable error situations.

Next® Document Capture enhanced with conditional mapping of optional fields NEXT-3712
You may now specify a default configuration if an optional field value is missing from the index source. 

Access to REST APIs for user profiles with UI login prohibited.  NEXT-3665
We have changed the implementation so that Prohibit UI sign in no longer prohibits the use of our REST APIs.

Possible to sort on Description when setting up Field definitions NEXT-3660
Click the Description heading to sort your Field definitions based on the description instead of the name. Makes it much easier to work with complex definitions.

5,000 haystack limitation removed NEXT-3655
In our continued quest to make Next® even more scalable, we have removed the previous limits of 5,000 storage haystacks. The maximum is now - unlimited.  

Status - Fast indexer completed - maintained on documents being fast indexed   NEXT-3725
If you use the Fast Indexing process to prepare data for an external system, it is essential that the external system does not retrieve that data until the indexing process is completed.  

Integrating external data enhanced NEXT-3296
You may now filter your external data in table services on numeric field values such as amount (BigDecimal). Also, the result of the Test feature now reflects the setup of columns for the specified user profile.     NEXT-3411

More flexibility when setting up the work pace   NEXT-3478
You may now hide the standard personal task list (My tasks), and still keep the favorite Search forms.
Comes in handy, when you have made dedicated tasks lists. 

For the techies

This is pretty much technical in it's nature.
