Disabling document shortcuts

As of FileHold 16.0, document shortcuts have been deprecated. If you had this feature enabled but no document shortcuts, it will be disabled automatically. If the document shortcuts are enabled and there are shortcuts, a message "The document shortcut feature has been deprecated. Document shortcuts are enabled..." at the bottom of the general settings page.

Shortcuts to documents can be created but can slow down the Search performance in FileHold. When you have several million documents with several shortcuts, it impacts the performance of the system.

The option of creating document shortcuts can be disabled in order to improve Search performance. Shortcuts will be automatically disabled in FileHold 12 for all new installations (but can be enabled if necessary). If you have existing shortcuts from previous versions of FileHold, this will still be active and enabled when you upgrade. Once shortcuts are created, they cannot be disabled again.

There are several alternatives for shortcuts such as:
