Expose archived documents in WebDAV

To allow people who work with digital assets (logos, photos, video, sound, and other media files) to organize them safely in Next® Digital Workplace, and still be able to access them easily from within their preferred tools, we deliver this new and optional feature to Next®.

Selected documents in Next® are automatically made available in a traditional file server structure, looking exactly as if not managed by Next®. While the everyday user of graphical elements, have little issues with locating the right digital assets by browsing a directory structure, everyone else will find it much easier to find the right one searching in the Next® UI. With this feature in place, the two methods leads to the same resource - the one and only original.

When you have successfully located a digital asset in the Next® UI, you can easily copy it's address to the clip board.  

How each digital assets appears in the file/folder structure is configured in Next Next®. Some may chose to setup so that new revisions retain their name, and others that each revision gets a unique name.

A single digital asset (document) may even appear in more that one place, to makes things even easier to locate.

We will not expose all documents in Next® through WebDAV. Next® is NOT a file server and will never be.  This support is meant for the select few, who works extensively with files, and still wants them to be controlled by the enterprise archive.
