Documents

Overview

The Documents tab allows you to perform search operations in the following two ways:

  • API search

  • Database search

To Access the API and Database Search, the user can set the corresponding permissions through the Account Management option. To know more about setting permissions, click here.

Getting Started

Before any document searching can be done, there are a few configurations that need to be made, namely:

  1. Metadata should be mapped to the layouts/forms.

  2. Layouts and forms must be configured.

    1. If working with DeskSite/FileSite or Cloud iManage/Private Cloud/Work 10, CAM commands must be set up.

  3. The search layout(s) must be set up.

Mapping Metadata

  • Metadata should first be created.

  • Once metadata has been created, it should be mapped.

Layouts and Forms

Layouts are a key component of the Documents and Workspace tabs, as they determine what fields will be available to a user when navigating CAM’s tabs. The look and behavior of a layout will depend on the Form. When a tenant is first created, the following forms will be automatically loaded:

Warning: Keep in mind that the default layouts/forms for a newly created tenant will not have metadata mapped to them nor users assigned. For a layout to work properly, metadata must be mapped to it and users must be assigned to it.

Learn more about customizing layouts, adding forms, and assigning users to them. Learn more about mapping metadata.

CAM Commands

CAM Commands allow the use of specific functionality of CAM from within DeskSite/FileSite or Cloud iManage/Private Cloud/Work 10.

On Premise Steps to Install

  1. Download the CAM Commands installer using the EXE or MSI of Edge Compatible installer.

  2. Run the installer on premise. (You may have to trust the app and run anyway with the Windows Smartscreen popup.)

  3. Check which commands to enable from the installer.

  4. Once installed, you can open DeskSite or Filesite, and use the right-click menu to access the CAM commands.

  5. Registry edits to rename items can be done from the Interwoven registry folder.

 

Work in the Cloud/Cloud iManage/Private Cloud Steps to Install

  • Now you can use the commands in the Web Client.

Learn how to configure CAM Commands in more detail.

Configuring the Search Layout

Configure the content of the search bar (displayed in the top center of the page).

  1. Go to the administration tab.

  2. Click on Layouts.

  3. Click the Edit button in the Actions column against the Search drop-down.

  4. In the Search Configuration window, add information in the provided fields.

  5. Click Save.

  6. Click Add.

Read the detailed steps to configure the search layout.

Searching Documents

Once layouts have been configured, CAM commands have been set up, metadata has been mapped, and users have been assigned, searching can be done.

API searches are available for clients under the Manage tier and onwards. API searches mean that through an API, CAM goes directly to the DMS to do the searches. These are lookups that call the DMS in real time and pull that information as if the user were in the DMS searching.

 

To search documents using API Search:

  1. Go to the Documents tab.

  2. Click More Search to search the document. The following dialog opens:
