September 2018 Product Update - Document360 Old UI and New UI

It will make the interaction with the portal pleasant for the customer as the UI now looks modern.

Minor UX changes have been made to make the interactions with the portal more seamless.

We hope this fresh UI will give the customer a better user experience

Bulk Operations & Filters

Performing the task of publishing your articles one by one can become cumbersome, time consuming and repetitive. We want to make this simpler and easier for our writers. If the Editor reviews the articles written by DraftWriters, and now would like to publish them, he would now need to do this individually at the article level.

To overcome this, Document360 now has a feature “Bulk operation” which allow users to perform an operation on more than one article at a time. Just select all the articles by ticking the tick box and then select the action you wish to perform.

Still following the very old way of reviewing and publishing articles? Taste the bulk operation feature!

Exclude Reader Count From Usage Users Count

Our pricing page – outlines the different tiers available for our product. We have decided to remove the Reader count from the User accounts count based on customer feedback. As customers had more readers than actual users editing and writing documents.

Options for Additional User Accounts Purchase in Payment

Many of our users wants to purchase additional user accounts and this has now been implemented in Document360 under the Payments section.

How does Yearly & Monthly Billing scenarios works?

For each of the team account, we charge $5/month + VAT

Let’s take an example calculation for additional team accounts,

Team Accounts – 2
Billing Type – Yearly/Monthly

  • Yearly Billing: 2*$5*12 = $120 + VAT (If you are a member of the EU state)
  • Monthly Billing: 2*$5*1 = $10 + VAT (If you are a member of the EU state)

In case if you need more information on the pricing calculation, you can contact our support.

Print Option in User Website

This week Document360 has added the print option in the Documentation website for Users. This will remove the clutter (categories and table of content etc) when a user prints a page on the documentation website. This will help users to print the documents from the knowledge Base Software without the Category manager in the output.
