Managed Options - New 17.1

A new interface has been provided for FileHold administrators to manage options that were previously only available by editing configuration files directly in Windows Server. This opens a number of configuration options for FileHold Cloud customers and provides an easy to use interface for all customers.

Azure Active Directory Authentication - New 17.0

Authenticate users in FileHold against your Azure tenant. Share a single sign on between your Microsoft 365 and other Azure enabled applications. Automatically take advantage of the multi-factor authentication you have configured in Azure to secure FileHold.

External Signature Integration With DocuSign - New 17.0

There are now plenty of options to customize the look and feel of your web client log in page with your organization branding and most used options.
