London, 22 June 2016
Leading ECM adoption specialist Repstor, today announced the launch of the latest version of its Outlook content management tools Repstor affinityTM and assist 3.3.
Repstor is showcasing the new product features at the AIIM Forum in London on 22nd June. Repstor products are perfect for users who spend a lot of time in Microsoft® Outlook® and want to manage all of their content from there, as its seamless integration with Outlook means the products are simple and easy to use, creating happy users.
Using Repstor affinity and assist enables users to file emails and documents accurately into their chosen repository directly from Outlook – without asking them to learn anything new. Repstor products plug straight into Outlook and leverage all the features of SharePoint or other ECM system, but in an on-screen environment familiar to users. They don’t slow down Outlook’s performance and because they are easy to use, people use them.
With release 3.3 Repstor has taken filing to a new level. With Jump to folder and Quick File finding and filing information has always been easy. However, now you have even more options by allowing you to search for a parent level folder and then browse its child folders in the search window.
The Quick File and Jump to Folder dialogs now support expanding any folders from search results, recent locations or Repstor assist suggested locations. This allows users to locate a folder and then drill down to lower levels to identify the correct folder to use.
Document Template Creation
Repstor assist now gives users the ability to create Placeholders. Placeholders provide basic document generation for documents created within Repstor affinity. They help users to create documents consistently and use the properties associated with individual users, departments, clients, projects etc. by creating a template that can then be inserted into Word documents and/or updated in bulk with their current values. Repstor assist now provides the ability to sync SharePoint lists of individual user placeholders.
Comparison Everywhere – further extending Repstor and Microsoft Office 365 Integration
Repstor affinity and assist provide enhanced email and content management by providing deep integration with Office 365 and the Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint products. In addition to the ability to compare the contents of two affinity documents in Word and convert documents accessed from affinity to Adobe PDF directly from Microsoft Word, users can now also compare Word documents with their previous SharePoint versions within affinity. When filing Word documents to a Repstor folder affinity will now notify users if there’s a matching file and provide an option to compare the documents. Customers can also integrate this with more advanced comparison applications if required.
Improved Repository Support
Repstor affinity 3.3 adds to the already extensive multiple repository support provided by extending the existing support for HPE Content Manager, formerly Records Manager to include:
- Full support for the new HPE Content Manager service API
- Search and add classifications as a set of folders in affinity
- Prompt for the Record Type when adding folders
