'Discovery-style' searching for Notes users

During the upgrade to R9, we extended our File Indexer to automatically index the content of ZIP files (the File Indexer is an extension to the FT Search Manager, and allows you to index & search doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, odt, odp, ods, pdf, vsd, wpd, txt, htm and html files on your local PC or server-based File Systems. More information can be found here). 

In addition, the FT Search Manager itself now allows you to select and copy File System results to another location, or attach them to a Notes database.

This makes 'discovery-style' searching for users much easier, because they can search their local PC at the same time as Mail & Archives, find all relevant data (either in email or files), then 'process' it, e.g. copy it elsewhere, perhaps in response to a litigation request.

Shown below are the default processing options - you can easily customise or add your own.

1. Search (Notes Client)

2. Select Results (Notes Client).
Note this OpenOffice document is within a ZIP file on the c: drive, yet you can see the contents quite easily.

3. Define ZIP handling.

4. Define File handling.

5. Specify File System copy location.

6. Specify Notes data copy location.

7. Processing Complete.
