Document Delivery Enhancements

Is this the latest version? What has changed? Who holds the controlled copies? Who is hiding old copies of the document in their drawer? Does everyone know an important document has changed? Let's put an end to the age old document run around. Any document on the your ExcelWraps subdomain is the current version...and is available to your community anywhere any time.

  • SECURE - Wrap Media upload controls holds all media in a security layer that only users with correct credentials can access. Even if you knew the document hyperlink you can’t access it without the correct user credentials.
  • REVISION HISTORY – Document changes are described in wrap input cells.
  • VERSION CONTROL – Wrap AutoNumbers automatically increment the version number and using the keyword ‘last’ takes you to latest version.
  • AUTHORISATION – Add wrap digital signatures for ‘Checked by’ and ‘Approved by’.
  • LOCKDOWN – Wrap freeze applied on ‘Approved by’ signature – then the wrap and associated media cannot be changed.
  • ACKNOWLEDGEMENT – Send out an associated Notification Wrap to collect signatures from key users. This registers their acknowledgement of the new/up-issued document and their agreement to inform their subordinates. Any unsigned notification Wraps appear user’s ‘In-tray’ until they have been signed. The owner of the notification wrap receives an email alert once all signatures have been collected.
  • PDF VIEWER – Our wrap pdf viewer makes sure that the document is presented in the same way regardless of what device you are using (Windows, iOS or Android). Our viewer includes page thumbnails and headings map for fast navigation.
  • MULTI-DOCUMENT – Wrap media upload controls hold an unlimited number of documents and incorporate document selection controls.
  • PREVIEW – A snapshot of the front page of the document is shown in the zooming media preview area.

Wrap Software Upgrades

Unlike Apps, Wraps will not keep bugging you to update the software when a new version is available. All upgrades happen seamlessly in the background and users will be totally unaware that any software upgrade has actually taken place. Software upgrades take place about once a month, having been fully tested on a replica site. Since our last newsletter all this was improved... and our users had to do precisely nothing!
