The Docushare server will be unavailable on Saturday morning (08/09/03, 6 am to noon) while it is upgraded to version 3.

The Docushare server will be unavailable on Saturday morning (08/09/03, 6 am to noon) while it is upgraded to version 3. This outage will include the transfer of documents and users to the upgraded version. Once complete, any new documents will need to be added to the upgraded version.

If you plan on working on your documents this weekend, go to http://144.92.104.33/docushare On Monday morning, the URL will change to: http://docushare.doit.wisc.edu

DocuShare version 3.0 brings enhanced reliability and additional features. Some of the new features are:

  • Document Approval and Routing - Enables users to set up workflows for document review and approval. Users can route documents stored in collections or require approval of a document before it is added to a collection.

  • Native WebDAV support - Access and manage DocuShare content from any WebDAV-compliant applications or OS, without installing client software. The DocuShare Windows Client components are still available and enhanced for 3.0 to provide a richer interface to DocuShare than native WebDAV provides including versioning, custom properties, permissions and searching.

  • Perform tasks on multiple objects - Change location, change owner, rename, and delete multiple objects in a collection.

  • Enhancements to all DocuShare Client applications - Including new checkin wizards, tabbed view bars, and multiple file upload from the PaperPort Link.
