Secure Your File Perimeter and Experience True Selective Sync

Update your desktop client and mobile app now to experience an even better file sharing and collaboration experience

Since the start, giving you the most simple, secure and smart file sharing experience has been the driving force behind OpenText Core. The team has worked hard to make sure that this latest release hits all three parts of the equation. We know you’ll love this feature-packed version of your favorite cloud-based collaboration and file sharing app, so be sure to update your desktop client and your mobile app today to find out why!


How This Release Makes Things More Simple

As always, the team takes feedback from the Community Forum, Twitter, and other social channels to make sure that you spend less time setting things up and organizing your file shares and more time getting things done. After all, the easier it is to find what you’re looking for, share what you need with who you need to collaborate with, and work with the information you need to get the project finished, the more time you will have for other stuff – like sitting back, relaxing, and watching the game with the team as a reward for a job well done!

Sorting Filters
Sorting filters in OpenText Core

In the latest release of OpenText Core, the team has delivered several “tweaks to the system” so that you can better organize, visualize and locate your files. Check out the thumbnail view (perfect for picture-heavy folders), the file-sorting filters and a host of other small, but great, mods to the interface.


Why is it More Secure, You Ask?

Fantastic news for anyone looking to bolster security and protect their important stuff: OpenText Core now features two-factor authentication, aka 2FA. If you have a Personal Tier account, you can “self-enable” 2FA and use popular two-step authenticators, such as Google Authenticator, and if you are the admin of a Business or Enterprise Tier account, you can enable 2FA for all your users with support for Duo, TOTP, and more!


Let’s check it out with a quick walkthrough:

For Admins: Click to learn how to enable 2FA for your tenant.

How About, What Makes it Smarter?

The Desktop Sync feature we launched a while back gave you the option to use the Edit button from the Files List to make changes to your documents and have them instantly saved, or to sync files between your Files List and your devices. We just made it a whole lot better with True Selective Sync. Lots of file sharing and collaboration apps offer “selective synchronization” but it limits you to selecting everything or choosing what folders to sync.

The beauty of True Selective Sync in OpenText Core is that you can choose exactly what you want synchronized between your desktop and the cloud. You can select everything, folders, specific files within folders, or even just a handful of individual documents or a folder of your pics to keep up to date on your desktop and devices.

Here’s a look at True Selective Sync in action:

An Up-Close “View” of our Mobile App Update

Swipe-enabled viewing and performance tweaks make for an even better experience for iOS and Android app users

You asked, we listened and delivered! Since launching the OpenText Core app, one of the top requests is to make the viewer more slick and friendly. Good news! With the latest update to both the iOS and Android app, we’ve improved the mobile file viewing experience to do just this.


Get the latest iOS or Android app for an even better OpenText Core experience

All new swipe-enabled viewer!
New: Swipe-to-view

Be sure to update your OpenText Core app today and check out the new look and feel. You’ll notice that when you launch a file in the viewer that you can now swipe to view the next file in line (or the previous one if you swipe left…). This is perfect for your “pics” folders or browsing documents by appearance vs. name so you can quickly share it with your team.

The new viewer works across any “file filter” in OpenText Core, so you can easily swipe through only files shared with you, those that you’ve shared with others, or files that you have marked for offline viewing and editing.

If you don’t already have the OpenText Core app on your device, or you do and have auto-updates disabled, you can visit Google Play or the App Store to get the latest and greatest version.


Mark for offline editing and viewing (.., or “unmark”)
right from the viewer

OpenText Core users have also been asking for different (and better) ways to work with their files on the app. We’ve added “Mark for Offline” to the More menu (“ooo”) so that you can quickly add (or remove) files to your list of stuff that you want to look at or edit when you are disconnected — directly from the viewer. Once you are back online, you can easily upload any changes or “unmark” the files you no longer need in your offline review list.

 

 


The OpenText Core app just got smarter…

Screenshot_20161110-125508If you are an OpenText Core app user, you already know that the team works tirelessly to provide the best possible mobile experience for sharing and collaborating. In this update, there were lots of issues addressed, a few bugs squashed, and several tweaks made to improve performance. One modification that is particularly cool is the way that the app now “remembers” where you left off in the Files List or Activity Feed when you interact with them.

This means if you click an entry in your Activity Feed – let’s say to view a document that was added – you no longer have to scroll down to “catch up” on the latest activities when you are finished. The app is now smart enough to remember exactly where you left off, so you spend less time looking for what you are after and more time getting things done. It’s a small change, but users are already saying it makes their sharing and collaborating lives easier; and that makes the team happy!

It’s the First Birthday for OpenText Core!

Lots to celebrate and lots to reflect on for an exciting first year

We recently marked the official anniversary of “Launch Day” for OpenText Core. Since unveiling it to the world, the team has accomplished some pretty amazing things. In its first year, there have been dozens of new product features introduced, continuous enhancements made to performance, and an entirely new range of “enterprise-ready” capabilities that are changing the way businesses think about file sharing and collaboration. In total, there have been 20 updates to OpenText Core with no evident service interruptions.

Beyond these notable achievements, the team has done so much more. While the product has certainly grown and evolved, the team itself has too. Having been together for the better part of two years, the Advanced Innovation Lab (who conceptualized, designed, engineered, and delivered OpenText Core) has developed a character, reputation, and personality of its own across the company, among customers, and in the community at large.

Some of the feature highlights that made the year memorable include:

Engineered-for-the-Enterprise Capabilities
:

Integration with OpenText Content ServerAllows users to publish OpenText Core files to (and import files from) Content Server to make simple, secure and smart file sharing and collaboration a natural extension of the powerful Content Server information management environment.

Single Sign OnAllows enterprise users to sign in to OpenText Core using their Active Directory or LDAP credentials. This simplifies account management, provisioning, and allows their lifecycle to be managed through existing policies.

Outlook OTCore Pane(1)- Outlook IntegrationA brilliant way to let users share and collaborate without ever leaving their favorite email application. Not only can users locate and access files in OpenText Core from the reading pane, but they can drag and drop to save messages (including all attachments being kept with the message), just file attachments, or only the message itself.

Powerful, Sophisticated, Yet Surprisingly Easy to Use Features:

Email Support - OpenText Core introduced industry-leading support for email, including the ability to retain all attachments with the original message and providing users with an easy and fast way to view attachments without downloading them – all they need to do is open the message in the Viewer and all attachments appear at the top to allow for easy previewing and download options.

Zip-and-Download - a great new feature that lets you easily select multiple files and folders for download and have them packaged up and delivered to your desktop for reading, review or local storage.

new app screens(1)Native Mobile Apps - new native apps were released to give users anywhere, anytime, any-device access without sacrificing the simple, secure, smart desktop features they enjoy.

Add-in for Microsoft Office – Makes it super easy for Windows-based PC users to open, edit and save OpenText Core files without ever leaving their productivity applications.
Secure Links – OpenText Core lets users share download links with external users with password protection and expiry dates for added security.

Bulk Upload – Gives uses the ability to drag and drop folders and files from your desktop to OpenText Core, monitor upload progress and, if need be, cancel the upload of specific files or folders.

Sharing and Collaboration – More than a Product

From the ground up, we built OpenText Core to be “built for users, engineered for the enterprise” and to make a file sharing and collaboration offering the helps people Get Things Done. But that moniker is much more than a product tag line – it is the driving force and the philosophy of the OpenText Core team. The same passion for sharing and collaboration that energizes the evolution of our product carries over to the team’s involvement in community and cause.

The OpenText Core team regularly participates in local events and charitable causes, bringing our spirit of sharing and collaboration to deliver more than just a product to the community at large. Since unveiling OpenText Core, the team has been involved in a number of initiatives, including:

Habitat for Humanity – The team pitched in as part of the OpenText Habitat forH4H_1 Humanity group on two build projects in the community. Check out the cool OpenText Core
t-shirts we provided so everyone not only looked great, but also expressed the spirit of sharing and collaboration that the Habitat for Humanity organization exemplifies.

KidsAbility and Holiday Toy and Food Drive – During the holiday season, the OpenText Core team was lucky enough to get a special, private screening of Star Wars The Force Awakens. A small donation was asked in exchange for a coveted ticket. In typical OpenText Core StarWarsTicketfashion, “just delivering the minimum requirements” wasn’t enough. Our small team went above and beyond, working with staff from other groups to collect nearly $1000 in cash donations, on top of nearly 500 pounds of food, and a several boxes of new toys. It was really a demonstration of the OpenText commitment to sharing!

Humane Society – Throughout the year, the OpenText Core team participates in community events and charitable drives that support worthy causes like the Humane Society. The Core team helped the OpenText fund-raising efforts by contributing to several events, such as a bake sale and the cash donation and “items wish list” campaign.

What an exciting year it was for OpenText Core! What’s more is that along the way, our team channeled the collaborative spirit of the product and established its own identity. By collaborating with others, sharing our time and leading by example, we proved that, just like OpenText Core the product, together, we can Get Things Done!

Fantastic News for Enterprise Plan Subscribers! It’s Finally Here (…and it’s Awesome)

Check Out The OpenText Core Add-In for Microsoft® Outlook®

Welcome to cloud-based file sharing and collaboration without ever having to leave your favorite email application

We’re excited to unveil our latest groundbreaking feature for Enterprise plan customers – the OpenText Core add-in for Microsoft Outlook. The add-in is sure to thrill all Microsoft Outlook fanatics looking for a simple, secure and smart way to collaborate and share messages and attachments, all without ever leaving their favorite email application. No more opening messages, extracting attachments, saving them locally and then (finally…) uploading them to a place where teams and partners can actually start to collaborate and get things done.

Make Document Reviews and Approvals Way Easier

Face it, forwarding emails as a way to collaborate, conduct file reviews and approvals, share and comment on notes, and other business tasks can be a nightmare. Consolidating versions, running document comparisons, searching for all related comments (both in documents and email messages) makes getting a clear picture of what is going on with a project file problematic at best.


Test Drive: The New OpenText Core Add-In for Microsoft Outlook

Let’s take a look under the hood and try out a variety of things that the OpenText Core add-in for Microsoft Outlook can do that will both change the way you think about sharing and collaborating around business information and eliminate the hitches and hassles of “collaboration by email”:

(Please Note: The OpenText Core add-in for Microsoft Outlook is currently available to Enterprise plan customers with users on Microsoft Windows® PCs. For Mac users, the add-in is only accessible through the use of a Windows VM environment.)

App Alert! New Tagging Feature to Organize Files and Find Stuff Faster!

Update Your App and Start Tagging Your Content!

The latest iOS and Android apps for OpenText Core give you the ability to add contextualized keywords, classifications, or category phrases with the new tagging feature. Adding tags serves a variety of purposes, but the three main ones are:

1.Tags link collaborators in OpenText Core to keyword related content – all of your files and folders – without having to know the filename or folder title.

2.Tags help group content by category and keyword to organize them better

3.Tags are recognized by the advanced search in OpenText Core and, because tags are treated like keywords, any tagged file or folder containing the tag will show up, even if the tag is not part of the content or file/folder name.

Basically, tags let you find what you need to get things done faster and easier. You don’t need to know the exact filename or anything else that the file may or may not contain. So, head to your Files List and start tagging to make your life a whole lot easier when it comes to pinpointing exactly what you’re looking for!

Tagging Files and Folders to Find Things Faster

Say you have a big company event coming up, like a user conference or customer party. Add a dozen collaborators that also have files related to the event but they store their files in their own OpenText Core Files List. Suddenly you have hundreds of files related to the event but no real way to categorize them because they are saved in different folders across different collaborators.

The new tagging feature of OpenText Core to the rescue! No matter what the filename or where the files “live” in OpenText Core – internal user or external collaborator list – all you need to do is have everyone tag their files with a common keyword, such as #UserConference2015. Problem solved! So long as you have the file shared with you in OpenText Core you’ll be able to easily see every file tagged with your keyword. It makes getting things done a lot easier without having to email or message back and forth with everyone on the team to see who has the file you need.

Try it Out >

You can easily apply tags to files or folders by:

MobileTag(1)1) Swipe and tap the “Tags” option– Locate the file or folder in your Files List and swipe across it. Tap the “More” icon  (“ooo”), then the “Tags” icon. Enter keywords individually, hitting “Return” on your device’s keyboard after each tag. When you are finished adding tags, they will be applied when hit the back arrow to return to your file or folder.

 

 

core-iphone-04-viewer-tagmenu2) Use the “More” option in the Viewer– Just tap the file to view it in the OpenText Core Viewer on your phone or tablet. Next, tap the More icon (“ooo”) and select “Tags” — enter keywords individually, hitting “Return” on your device’s keyboard after each term. Tags will be applied when you tap the back arrow to return to your file or folder.

It’s that simple. Finding everything associated with a theme, topic, project name or anything else will be a whole lot easier!

 

Enhancements, Fixes and, As Always, Helpful Advice!

EnterpriseLoginYou’ll also notice an Enterprise Log In option on the updated app. If your business is using the Single Sign On (SSO) capability, you’ll need to click on that and enter your network username and password.

Also included in the release are a number of minor bug fixes,  performance improvements to help you get things done faster, and a couple of tweaks to make sharing and collaborating with OpenText Core even more simple, secure and smart!

New Release! Built for Users, Engineered for the Enterprise: Great Business-Ready Features and Much More

There’s so many new things that the OpenText Core team has worked on for this release that we’ll be breaking down some of the bigger features in separate articles and video walkthroughs over the next few days. That said, this post will get down to business and give you an overview of some of the highlights of the latest desktop and browser experience for OpenText Core.

Speaking of business, the new OpenText Core offers two outstanding capabilities built specifically for enterprise customers: OpenText Content Server Integration to extend your content management strategies to external users and simplify collaborative document work, and Single Sign On (SSO) Support with Active Directory sync so your organization’s users can log in to OpenText Core with their network credentials and ensure heightened security and reduced cost for IT.

Extend Your Content Management Strategy and Improve User Adoption

You asked, we listened – and delivered; users can now take advantage of the simple, secure and smart OpenText Core file sharing and collaboration experience and publish and import files from the legendary OpenText Content Server information management platform.

With the integration, OpenText Core users can now:

•    Publish Files to OpenText Content Server – One of the most pervasive issues that enterprises experience when executing on enterprise content management (ECM) strategies is poor user adoption. At worst, users skip the system altogether, choosing instead to store business content in email, on their desktop, in a network shared folder, or even in a consumer-grade cloud storage tool. This compromises the security and governance of your organization’s critical content and undermines the goals of ECM.

With the new integration, business users will be able to seamlessly publish the files they share and collaborate with in OpenText Core directly to Content Server. This makes sure that the policies that drive your ECM strategy are enforced and makes sure that business content is governed by the security and information management rules your organization has established.

PublishGetting files from OpenText Core to Content Server is as easy as clicking “Publish” from the Actions menu, which offers your enterprise an added bonus – increased user adoption. A common complaint of users is that ECM systems can be “cumbersome” and time consuming. Now, getting files from where they are to where they need to be is super easy! Think of the Content Server integration as an “onramp” to ECM for your users. They don’t have to learn a system to bring their business content under the control your organization requires – they simply select a location to publish their files to and OpenText Core and Content Server do the rest.

•    Import Files from OpenText Content Server – Collaboration has taken on a new meaning for business. What used to be a fairly internal process has transformed to include collaborators from not only around the world but from different businesses, partner organizations, and other third parties. As far as ECM and information governance policies and strategies go, this raises new challenges and threats.

Users typically sidestep ECM systems (not to mention information security policies…) if they think it is too difficult or it takes them too long. As an alternative to using proper systems to handle business information and collaborate around it, they conduct their collaborative work with external parties via email, FTP, cloud storage tools, or even physical media like USB drives.

The Content Server integration for OpenText Core lets users work the way they want to work, as well as share and collaborate more securely with external parties, while at the same time ensuring your security and information access and management policies are respected. In short,

For more details and to learn how to configure the OpenText Content Server integration with OpenText Core, please visit the Community Forum.

Simplify Account Provisioning and Management, Cut Down the Number of “I Forgot my Password” Helpdesk Calls and Bolster Security with SSO

When deploying OpenText Core for large organizations, initial account provisioning (importing emails and having users confirm their accounts and set their own password) can delay things. Who wants to wait longer than necessary to discover the world of simple file sharing and collaboration that OpenText Core delivers? With Active Directory sync, OpenText Core works with your existing environment to quickly get employees (and any external users you have in your system that you want to add) onboard and set up.

SSO allows your employees to log in to OpenText Core using their Active Directory or LDAP credentials.  What’s more is that account management is simplified by syncing your users with OpenText Core, allowing them to be provisioned and their lifecycle managed through your organization’s existing policies. This means the security and simplified user management and administration you enjoy with SSO carries over to OpenText Core.

 

If you are an existing customer and yourOTCoreSSO employees are already using OpenText Core, then it is no problem to switch these accounts over to SSO. Once they have been synced with Core via OpenText Enterprise Directory Sync Software they will automatically be switched to SSO!

If you have contractors or temporary staff who do not have Active Directory or LDAP accounts in your organization, no problem; you can create and manage these accounts just as you do today.

Configuring SSO for OpenText Core is a straightforward process and can be accomplished on a “do-it-yourself” basis in minimal time. For full details and a walkthrough guide for configuring SSO for OpenText Core, please visit the Community Forum.

Be Sure to Update Your Web Edit Client!
To take advantage of the OpenText Content Server integration and/or the Enterprise Login for Single Sign On in OpenText Core, a Web Client Update (AKA, the “desktop client”) is required. Even if you are not an Enterprise plan account subscriber, you’ll want to update your client for some performance improvements and fixes. Visit the Downloads page to update.

Check it Out! Apply Tags to Find Things Faster and Get Organized

The latest release of OpenText Core gives you the ability to add contextualized keywords or category phrases with the new tagging feature. Adding tags serves a variety of purposes, but the three main ones are:

1. Tags link collaborators in OpenText Core to keyword related content and conversations – files, folders or comments.

2. Tags help group content by category and keyword.

3. Tags are recognized by the advanced search in OpenText Core and, because tags are treated like keywords, any tagged file, folder or conversation containing the tag will show up, even if the tag is not part of the content or file/folder name.

Basically, tags let you find what you need to get things done faster and easier. You don’t need to know the exact filename or anything else that the file may or may not contain. So, head to your Files List and start tagging to make your life a whole lot easier when it comes to pinpointing exactly what you’re looking for!

Tagging Files and Folders to Find Things Faster

Add a dozen collaborators that also have files related to the event but they store their files in their own OpenText Core Files List. Suddenly you have hundreds of files related to the event but no real way to categorize them because they are saved in different folders across different collaborators.

It’s that easy. Finding everything associated with a theme, topic, project name or anything else will be a whole lot easier!

Multi-File Tagging

Tagging a folder will let OpenText Core know to bring it up in the search results list whenever a keyword/tag associated with that folder is located. However, if you want a really easy way to tag multiple files from files that aren’t in folders or several files from one folder and a few from another, the multi-file tagging feature is great.

To apply tags files at the same time:

1) Just click “Actions” next to each file you want to apply keywords to:

2) Click “Enter” after each tag and, when you are finished, click “Apply”:

MultiFileTaggingB

 

 

 

All files that you selected to enter tags for will now be discoverable whenever you or any collaborator you’ve shared the files with enters the keyword as a search term.

Tag Cloud

Head to your Dashboard and check out the all new OpenText Core Tag Cloud. The Tag Cloud lets you get a snapshot of the most often-used keywords that you’ve applied to files or folders. It’s a great way to see the categories, projects or other classifications that you are working on the most. For example, if you are a creative professional, you can easily see the files and folders you tag the most – like “ABC Auto” or “Project X” – and easily determine which projects or clients you are working on the most.

Sharing Files and Tracking File Activity on Your Phone and Tablet Just Got Better!

The latest version of the OpenText Core app for iOS and Android is live! Be sure to update the app on your phone or tablet today and you will find two great new features that we think you’ll love – advanced security on links and an enhanced Activity Feed.

Send Secure Links to Share and Collaborate

New to the app for your iOS or Android device is the great “Public Links” feature. It’s one of the most popular things for collaborators around the world that use OpenText Core to do everything from share large files (and eliminate those annoying email attachment size limits) to accelerate document reviews and approval processes.

Public Links allows you to quickly copy and share URLs to content in OpenText Core – your coworkers (inside or outside the company) friends, or anyone at all that you need to get a file to, fast and easy. You can even secure access to the file by including a password and control access to it by setting an “expiry date” that renders the link invalid after a set number of days.

Try it OutIMG_1299(1)

You can find the Public Links feature easily by:

1) Swiping across any file:

 

 

 

 

 

SelectLinkSmall

2)    Tapping “More” (‘ooo’) and then “Public Link”:

 

 

 

 

CreateLinkSmall

3)    Enter password and/or expiry date if you want and tap “Create Link” – you can email the link by tapping the “share” icon next to the link.

You can also immediately retract the link (even before the expiry date you set) from everyone you’ve shared it with by tapping “Revoke Link”.

 

 

It’s that easy. You will be sharing pics, videos and documents with anyone, anywhere, on any device in no time!


 

Get the Scoop! See Exactly What is Happening (and Who Did It…)

The Activity Feed on your iPhone or iPad is a great way to get a snap shot of what’s going on with your stuff. It is one of the most powerful features of OpenText Core. It lets you see who has downloaded files, documents that have been locked, questions or comments, and anything else that has been done to your content. What’s more is that you can navigate to any activity and respond – check out a comment, reply to a comment, view a new version of a document, and more!

Guess What? Finding What You Need to Get Things Done in OpenText Core Just Got Easier!

No matter what you are collaborating on, finding the files, people or comments and discussions is probably critical to getting things done fast. Well, OpenText Core just made doing that a whole lot easier with Advanced Search.

The next time you log in to OpenText Core you will notice that the way you locate and access things has changed. Previously, when searching your Files List, you were limited to just finding files or folders that matched your keywords or search terms.

With the new Advanced Search, OpenText Core lets you get at exactly what you are after, whether what you need is a document, an image or video, or a collaborator, discussion thread or comment.


Quick Search Filters

CommentsSearchRight from your OpenText Core Files List, you can now search by a keyword and apply a quick filter for files, comments, or people. Whether you are after things related to a specific keyword, want to know what a colleague is saying about a file, or just need to know what is happening with a particular project, customer or topic, the quick filters in OpenText Core will guide you to everything you want.


 

Fine-Tuned Results

AdvancedSearch1If you prefer, OpenText Core lets you hone your search further with an extensive list of filters to pinpoint exactly what you are after. Simply enter a search term, name or phrase and OpenText Core will present you with a result set that includes everything that matches it. You can then click your way to locate precisely what you are looking for and get back to getting things done – fast!

 

The Advanced Search results page AdvancedSearch2offers you the ability to hone in on the specific person, comment or file by filtering on file type, comment or discussion content, collaborator name, and even by the people you’ve shared files with or those who have shared with you.

 


 

At the end of the day, it’s all about getting things done and working the way you want to work. It’s definitely not about wasting time searching around for the files, people and information you need. With Advanced Search, OpenText Core lets you get everything required to move your project along, get the information you want, or find the people you need – fast and easy.

Log in today and give the all new Advanced Search a try!
