Contact registerCMS has its own contact register where name, address, phones, email, web etc. are saved. The information is structured so that all employees of a company share the same company information, and changes in a company then only need to be updated once. Everywhere in CMS where a person name or company name is required, lookup is done towards the contact register and names are suggested as you type. When listing e.g. to/from columns in the doclist, the operator can quickly change between listingmodes "Person - Company" or "Company - Person", and for the person-name change even "Firstname Lastname" or "Lastname, Firstname" listmodes. This way it is easy to scan for documents by either person-name or by company-name, whichever is more convenient.
The contactregister can be synchronized with Outlook or Exchange address books if required. The CMS dataformat is Microsoft Access compatible, so it is easy to use the data with other applications.
Document revisionsBy right-clicking on a document in the document-list, the operator can open the Revisions-dialog, where multiple revisions of a document can be maintained. The last revision will be opened by default in main window, while older revisions can be fetched from the revision dialog. It is also possible to associate comments, attachments and releases to the document, with independent sets per revision.
Thumbnail viewerCMS has a built-in thumbnail viewer which supports many common image formats. To make the system fast enough, the thumbnails will only be shown when browsing leaf-categories. If you browse from higher up in the hierarchy it is still possible to show the thumbnails by clicking on a file of interest. Thumbnail will then automatically be shown.
Web interface and Windows applicationCMS supports a webinterface with most of the view-functions found in the standard Windows CMS program. Documents can be downloaded from the web, and for slow connection there is an option to ZIP-compress the files before download. The webserver must support Microsoft ASP.Net
Multiple CMS databasesIf running large non-related projects it is sometimes more convenient to split the CMS databases into two distinct instances. Since CMS is not integrated with Exchange Server or similar, advanced user can easily configure the CMS layout themself, without the need to rely on the IT departments to do the work.
