One-click rename file

New functionality for those who work with individual documents and files in Next®

The vast majority of documents in an enterprise archive as Next® have a file name that no one is concerned about. However, if you export or share documents with external parties, the actual file name may be more critical. 

For these use cases, we now add the One-click rename file to Next®

Rename from anywhere

You can use the Rename feature everywhere where you see individual files in Next®.

The Rename option is available on the content tab when you view a document

The Rename option is available in the dedicated Files panel view a document with the details open

You can change the file name, but Next® will preserve the extension of the file (.jpg, .pdf, .docx etc.).

Only if you are authorized 

You can of course only rename the files associated with documents where you have permission to update. On top of that, we have also enabled Feature control. This means that your Next® Admin can setup, who will see this feature, and for what document types - even if they have the needed permissions.  As default, the Feature control is set so that no-one sees the One-click rename file.

It is important that we remember that Next® is not a file server, and that the nucleolus in Next® is a document - not a file.

The business log

When you rename a file in Next® is is logged to the business log.
