Here’s the 5 minute version of new functionality in TRIM 7 that affects end users.
TRIM 7’s flagship functionality is a whole new integration for Sharepoint. There are two new Sharepoint integration modules:
- Records Management module that can ‘transparently manage, finalize, relocate, and archive SharePoint content such as blogs, wikis, discussions, documents, forms, and published pages for the end user according to established business rules’.
- Archive module that ‘enables administrators to set lifetime management policies on content for automatic archival of entire sites’.
Other items of new functionality are:
- A new string based search editor which allows searches to be grouped into hierarchies
- Users can now conduct nested searching (searching within searches)
- in the user options users can choose which search editor to use
- User Labels (Tags) are now available to users, hierarchies are available and there’s a whole new range of icons to go with user labels/tags
- Some additional user options are available:
- new tab in the TRIM Options for Locale (language)
- more spelling options and you can choose dictionaries
- options for capturing emails now have an option under the Dropped Files Tab
- Save Search As is now available from the right mouse click Menu
- Tools Options Integration has moved to a new location – Tools-HP TRIM Desktop Addins
- Some technical changes that improves the user experience/stability are:
- Favorites, Recent Documents and User Options are now saved in the database, not locally to the client
- System Options menus have changed significantly (especially object caching)
- Offline Records in TRIM 7 is based on xml, in 6.2 it was a jet database
- there are more options for how Global Options are saved
- TRIM SDK has been expanded to allow ‘on the fly’ customisation of the record entry form
