Active directory groups and individual users can now be targeted
- It is now possible to target a document (or list item) to an Active Directory Group directly from the 'Required' and 'Recommended' Audience fields.
- In addition to Active Directory groups, we have also given you the ability to assign a Reading Tasks to individual users which can reside in Active Directory or within your chosen FBA solution such as Extradium for SharePoint.
- You will also be delighted to know that you can still use SharePoint Groups and SharePoint Audiences as before.
SharePoint Lists can now be configured with DocRead
- It's always been possible to ask users to 'read' and 'confirm' any document (stored within a document library), however, in v2.5 you can now also use DocRead with any SharePoint List.
- As you can imagine, this offers much more flexibility as you can now assign items saved in video asset libraries, Announcement lists, news items and Calender meetings (and many more).
- Many organizations also create their own custom SharePoint lists, which can also easily be configured to be used alongside DocRead for SharePoint.
DocSurvey - Survey and Quiz questions can be mixed in a survey
- DocSurvey for SharePoint is an enhanced SharePoint Survey that allows you to create a Survey with questions that require the user to choose the correct answer.
- DocSurvey now offers the ability to ask non-scoring questions (e..g 'What is your favorite color?' alongside normal scoring questions (e.g. 'Who scored most goals in the last World Cup?').
- This means that when a Survey is used in conjunction with DocRead it not only allows you to force the user to pass a test (before confirming), but can also serve as a way to gather feedback about the document.
'Confirmation Tab' can be set as the 'default'
- It is now possible to configure DocRead to always show the 'Confirmation' tab by default when an end-user views their Reading Task.
- When this option is selected, it means that the user only has to make 2 simple clicks to confirm that they have read a document.
