We’re an official NetDocuments ISV Partner!

We’ve been a NetDocuments partner for years. Recently, with Leonard Johnson heading up their partner ecosystem, NetDocuments have formalized their NetDocuments ISV Partner Program. We have used their REST APIs to give NetDocuments users access to their documents and their email in the same encrypted container app, LINK. NetDocuments is committed to the platform approach wherein both Independent Software Vendors and NetDocuments customers can develop solutions for optimizing their workflows using the REST APIs.

It’s easy to review, compare, annotate, file, and email documents all within our LINK app. LINK also offers a managed integration with the Microsoft Office apps for editing on an iPad or smartphone.

Mobile Document Review with the LINK Viewer

For easy and secure document review, we have integrated our own document viewer in our LINK app. When you tap on a document name in LINK, it automatically opens in the LINK document viewer. LINK renders all documents as a PDF for high fidelity to the original. If there are Tracked Changes or redlines in the document, they are rendered as well. Or, you can elect to accept them and view a clean copy of the document.

The LINK viewer provides these essential features:

  • Annotate in the LINK viewer: highlight, underline, strike through, and much more, including irreversible redaction; select colors, opacity, thickness; Apple Pencil is supported
  • Split screen view – view two documents, two versions, or an email and a document side-by-side
  • Indices of: document outline/edits, annotations, and bookmarks
  • Bookmark a page and name the bookmark
  • Thumbnails
  • Continuous scroll
  • Search by term
  • Go to a page number
  • View one page up or two pages up
  • Rotate the page orientation

You may view a document in DMS (content management), an email attachment, or a document saved to My Files local, encrypted storage in LINK.

After you have reviewed, and possibly marked up, your document, you then have these quick options:

  • Check-in to your DMS or content management system
  • Email to a colleague or client
  • Save to My Files, the encrypted local storage in LINK
  • Air Print

You can access your documents, review, and annotate them in a single app – LINK.

My favorite iOS usability feature – AssistiveTouch

As someone who takes a LOT of screenshots – we make a mobile app – I am a fan of a set of features in iOS known as AssistiveTouch. With AssistiveTouch, you can create a virtual button on your screen. Tap the floating virtual button on your screen to accomplish one of 25 actions. For example, you can set the menu to take a Screenshot, go to Home, Pinch to zoom, Mute, or Speak Screen.

Screenshot, Home, or 23 other actions

Let’s start with my favorite usage. To take a screenshot on an iOS device, at least for a klutz like me, takes two hands. You must press the Home and Power buttons simultaneously. I must pick up the device to get the angles right to press both buttons with both hands. But when I use the AssistiveTouch virtual button then I simply use one finger to tap the virtual button, then tap Screenshot. The screenshot is snapped, and I’m on to the next screen.

Here’s what the button looks like on the screen.

Case Study: How Mobile Helix Used compareDocs SDK

How Mobile Helix used compareDocs SDK by DocsCorp to provide accurate document comparison in the LINK App for Lawyers

Mobile Helix, a legal technology solutions provider, used market-leading document comparison technology to meet user expectations for in-app comparison. Since integrating compareDocs SDK through a native .NET API, comparisons in the LINK App for Lawyers are faster and more accurate than ever.

The Business Need

  • Provide end-to-end workflows within the protected container of the encrypted LINK App
  • Improve the accuracy of in-app document comparison with new technology
  • Provide comparison on the server-side, rather than in the cloud
  • Partner with a leader in the legal technology industry

What happens when the document comparison in your app isn’t reliable?

We talked to DocsCorp about our integration of their high fidelity Word document comparison in our LINK app. We used their compareDocs SDK. It was a success for us and for our legal clients. This post is from their blog site.

Picture this: you are a lawyer who relies heavily on your devices to work outside of office hours. Perhaps you use the morning commute to fire off emails from your smartphone, or maybe you use your tablet on the couch after everyone has gone to bed and the house is finally quiet. While working on these devices, you use a secure app made especially for legal professionals. It has everything you need – access to your document management system, advanced search, Word editing and annotation, and document comparison.
