Major enhancement include the introduction of Portals, a new interface that allows unlimited read-only access, and the all new Mobile App that offers complete DAM functionality on iOS devices.

NetX 8 with HTML5 and Brand Portal UIs Now Available

Modula4 partner NetX has released a new version of their powerful and flexible Digital Asset Management (DAM) platform, NetX 8.

This version includes a brand new HTML5 interface which integrates a broad range of features and functionality into one easy-to-use interface. The redesign is clean, modern, and significantly increases efficiency for everyday workflows and tasks.

The new interface maintains consistency throughout the system, so the actions menu and layout of the application remain the same no matter what workflow the user is performing. This significantly reduces the time needed to master the application and perform daily tasks.

In addition, NetX is also introducing its new “X7” platform, the JavaScript framework on which the new UI is built. X7 is a framework which will allow any NetX client to create their own theme for the application, using a combination of HTML, CSS and Javascript. The framework provides a range of customization options, from simple style modifications, to a fully customized interface.

Version 8 continues NetX’s goal of user adoption through easy to use, intuitive UI components.

Reporting & Analysis Tool Now Supports Permissions

Modula4’s Reporting & Analysis Add-On now gives administrators control over the types of reports users can run, and which saved queries each user is allowed to access.

This new permissions feature can be used in a variety of ways, including:

  • Give users access to only saved queries to hide the power and complexity of the tool from ordinary users.
  • Limit the types of reports that can be generated  base on the permissions assigned.
  • If the system is managing assets for various departments or external clients in an “agency model,” permissions can be set so  users can only run or create queries that are relevant to their assets, users and activities
  • If using the agency model, some personnel can be given permission to create queries (on assets, users and activities relevant to them) and limit other users to only view these saved queries.

These are just a few  examples of the power and flexibility available with permissions-based reporting. The Reporting & Analysis Add-On is simply the most powerful and flexible reporting tool available of any DAM system.
