1-0184 Managing Documents in Content Server
Duration: 3 days
This course provides you with the knowledge necessary to manage your organization's information in Content Server. This course is designed as the foundation of all the OpenText Content Server courses. Through the Smart UI it provides an understanding of document management functionality, such as adding/accessing documents, reserving, downloading, copying/moving, versioning, sharing through email, and deleting documents.
Continuing with the Smart UI interface to help organize and find documents easier, you will mark items as favorites, build collections, use shortcuts, and create virtual folders. You will learn to use search tools, and find information using metadata, such as categories and attributes. You will explore the permissions for document management items from the Smart UI.
To further manage your documents, using the Classic UI you will work with compound documents, major/minor versions, emails, the advanced searching functionality, and explore users and groups to edit item permissions, set group leaders for facilitating group management and configure the editor group settings. To customize your environment further with metadata you will change item nicknames, customize columns and facets, configure the Content Filter sidebar, manage your Personal Workspace, and edit your user profile.
Additionally, Enterprise Connect, the desktop interface, will be used to add, access, and search for the documents. You will also work with briefcases allowing you to download documents from Enterprise Connect to work with them offline on a local file system that does not have Enterprise Connect installed. Integration with Microsoft Outlook email will also be explored.
