In FileHold 14, a new type of saved search called a quick search was added as a new feature. A quick search is a type of saved search where the search template is saved with only one empty variable in the template. When a user runs a quick search, they are required to enter the search term for a single empty variable while all other search criteria, if configured, remain fixed.

Some great new changes have been made to the viewer functionality in the FileHold Desktop Application. You can now change the library tree and the metadata pane so that they are in full or partial mode. This allows you to see more or less information when viewing your documents.

When the viewer is open, the Full and Partial buttons appear. Using Full mode for the metadata pane is useful when looking at a document and entering metadata at the same time.

2014 was a great year for our global partner network. So much so that we had a hard time choosing our partner of the year winner. Many factors such as partner sales, the ability to directly support their customers, and sustainability of customers all play an important roll in determining who should win. It was concluded that since there was more than one partner that stood out last year, that we are awarding not one but two partner of the year awards!
