iManage Connector⚡Component

Updated on

The connector allows users to access their iManage workspaces, folders and documents directly inside their Salesforce instance. Users can create files/folders, view folders/sub-folders, and edit files from the context of the records they are viewing.

What functionality does this module serve?

  • The component auto detects and maps itself to a workspace on the iManage work server based on the configuration available for the object. Every record can be associated to one or more workspace(s) in iManage Work.

  • Files can be uploaded to your iManage workspace folders via drag-n-drop or from a file selection dialog.

  • The list of files and folders is displayed to the user for easier operation. Users can drill down into folders with a simple click.

  • A new tab/folder or a set of folders can be created using the workspace templates from within the component interface.

  • Preview your documents or open your workspace/folders directly in iManage.

  • Seamlessly check a document out and back in with iManage Work for desktop. A document can be checked out by simply double-clicking on it.  The document will open in a local client application where changes can be made and then saved to iManage with auto check-in.

  • Users can follow workspaces for tracking and getting notified of changes such as new document added or updated within those workspaces.
