The My Document Repository Page

The My Documents module is exactly like the Documents module, except it allows the user that is longed in to maintain their personal document repositories without sharing access with any other users.

Available Functionality in the My Documents Module

  • One or many Document Repositories can be added to store different sets of documents.
  • Each Document Repository has the following metadata tables by default: Details, Document Table, Participants Table, History, Tags, References, and Notes.
  • Logged in user can create, edit, delete, and version Document Repositories.
  • User can manage folders and documents within a repository: Create, Upload, Rename, Edit, Delete, etc.
  • Document types and formats are not restricted.
  • Logged in user can create folders and sub-folders on the Document Repository.
  • The system displays the most recent version of the document in the viewer by default. From the viewer, the user can open and view previous version(s) in the same viewer as separate tabs in the viewer.
  • Logged in user can search across all Document Repositories using Global Search. User can narrow down the Global Search by Document Repository names in the system. (i.e. Facet = Document Repository Names; Values in Facet = HR, Policy, etc.)

ArkCase provides an intuitive mechanism to manage the documents associated with your business solution. You can locate and open the Document Repository module from the Navigation Frame.

1. To open the My Documents module from anywhere in ArkCase, click the My Documentstab in the Navigation Frame.

Note: By default, ArkCase selects the first documents on the list (list is in descending order, newest first), and opens in the Detail Frame all sections that you enabled on the Preferences page.

My Document Repository Display

When opening a document repository, sections automatically display only if they are enabled in My Document preferences. You can open disabled My Document sections from the links in the Navigation Icons Panel or the Expanded Treeview in the Browse Panel.

Summary Panel

A summary (metadata) of the selected My Document Repository appears as the first section of the detail.
