Document Exchange Lite

With Document Exchange (DMX) your DotNetNuke® installation will become a state-of-the-art Document Management system. Specify exactly who can see, edit, add or approve content, document by document. Build complex folder structures and categorize to reflect your document management needs. Index the contents so users can easily find them. Allow users to edit documents online while locking the file for others.

As document exchange has become more feature rich and a more enterpise solution, the call for a slimmed down version became louder. Document Exchange Lite is branched off an older version of DMX and some of you may recognize its looks. This version supports all basic features of a document management system: versioning, per document security, notifications, categorization, etc. We realize that this is largely sufficient for many small business needs.

FAQs

FAQ's

  • Q: Hi How do I apply my license to a trial version? Thanks Adam

    A: You upload the definitive version made available to you upon purchase and upload it to your DNN. Opt to "repair" installation and it will overwrite the trial version. The module does not need "activation" like the regular DMX does.

  • Q: How can I change the 'root folder' text to something else?

    A: Through the SharedResources file of the module. It is not customary to change it. Rather the idea is you create subfolders first that you set as root folders of the various module instances. See the "getting started" manual about this.

  • Q: Hi, Can you tell me if this module works in DNN v6?

    A: Yes it does.

  • Q: Is there an upgrade path from the Lite version to the Full version? If so what would the cost be??

    A: You can install a regular version over a lite version and it will retain the data. The cost is the same as a new purchase.

  • Q: Hi, Can I add the module in more than once. I want to use it on about 10 different pages, within the same portal.

    A: Yes, it was designed to be used that way. Only you have to remember they all look into the same document tree (unique per portal). You can set for each module instance the location where it starts in the document tree so you can still keep content separate. Alternatively you can benefit from sharing content across the portal by letting them overlap.

  • Q: When I order this product do I get version 03.04.11 ? or higher... Is the PDF Viewer and and Navigator part of the same package?

    A: You get the latest version and all minor upgrades. The addons you mention are free downloads from Bring2mind.

  • Q: I noticed that you mention that the "files can be stored anywhere on the server." What about files stored on another server (a file server) in the same domain? Can we configure Document Exchange 3 to access these files so that we don't have to import them onto our Web Server where DNN will reside?

    A: You can access files on another server without a problem. But you'll need to import them to the DMX repository all the same. The latter can also be on a network share. However, DMX assumes it is solely accessing the files in its repository. Any tampering with the files (e.g. through direct editing using MS Office) can make them unavailable for download.

  • Q: Can you setup groups (e.g. Sales, Finance, etc.) and allow each group to set their own permissions and their own categories (i.e. each department may categorize their files differently than other departments)?

    A: Yes and No. Categories are the same for everyone. Permissions are set by those who can edit something. There are only 2 permissions: VIEW and EDIT. You can opt to refuse regular users the ability to set permissions. Then the admin sets permissions on folders that automatically inherit to the children.

  • Q: I am reviewing Document Exchange for a DNN module on an extranet portal. Will it allow customers to upload their files?

    A: Yes. You specify for each folder who can view/upload items.

  • Q: I would like a notification email to be sent automatically to multiple emails everytime a file is uploaded. Does the module allow for this? Thanks.

    A: Yes. Each user that subscribes to a folder gets notified once an item gets added to that folder.

  • Q: I've noticed a comment stating: 'the full text search will only work if you sql server is on the same physical box as the web server' We're wondering if this is indeed the case, and if so, are they any workarounds to support this?

    A: There are workarounds, but it does require sound windows admin knowledge. You can find out more on the Bring2mind forums. There are several accounts by people who have succeeded in setting up such an environment. Kind regards

  • Q: If I purshase this module will I be able to upgrade to DMX 4 or DXM 4 ? at no cost or will I have buy the modules again? Thanks

    A: There will be an upgrade path. It won't be free but there will be a substantial rebate for existing users.

  • Q: Can I host Document Exchange 3 in my company and resell it to other customer as a hosted service? (With only one license?)

    A: Yes, you can. One license covers one DNN installation with all of its portals.

  • Q: Hi, does this system support permission setting on a per-file basis? I want file A to be viewed and downloaded only by security roles 1 and 3. And I want file B to be viewed and downloaded only by security roles 2 and 3. Is this feature supported? Thanks.

    A: Yes, this is eactly what it is designed to do.

  • Q: Hi Peter, Is there a version of DE 3 for DNN 4.x yet? And if not, will there be a DE version for DNN 4.x ? Thanks, Peter, Bill Quinn

    A: This version is for on DNN 4. You'll find the DNN 3 version under the DNN 3 section of this site.

  • Q: Will the licence cover multiple DNN installations under the same domain name? For example: mymainsite.com and project1.mymainsite.com? We do this instead of creating sub portals for management reasons. If this can be done it will work well for us.

    A: The license covers any number of domain names as long as they are on the same DNN installation.

  • Q: Hi Peter, Will this module be modified to allow full text searches when sql server is not on the same box as the web server? Thanks, Bill

    A: Hi Bill, We're working on making this possible. Currently there is still an authorization issue. The easiest is to store the files on the SQL server box as well. The web server does not need to be on this box. Peter

  • Q: Does this module provide for USER A to access only his files and USER B to access only her files?

    A: No. You can use the free UserFiles module for that which you can find on Bring2mind.net.
