More options for managing permissions
Square 9 has made it easier than ever to manage your GlobalSearch user permissions. Still available is the popular traditional approach of looking up permission by user, but now with a click, you can switch to view the security of an entire archive. This new view option is excellent for permission management, as well as answering questions regarding permissions.
Secure permissions to an entire department or location
The latest version of GlobalSearch also makes it easy to secure permissions through the new “GlobalSearch Groups” feature. No longer do you have to issue permissions to each user. Instead, simply create a group with similar permissions and grant that group access to select archives while restricting permission to other archives. Adding and removing users from a group can be done in just a few clicks. This new feature helps simplify security administration and saves time. Creating Groups is possible from the QuickStart Menu.
Inboxes work just like an inbox on your desk but without all reams of paper piling up. They can eliminate clutter, lost documents, and help users stay highly organized. Any inbox secured to a user is located in the navigation pane on the right of the browser client; you’ll love how organized it lets you be.
**Important Note Regarding GlobalSearch 6.1**
