We are pleased to announce the latest software update to Soutron is now available, version 4.1.6. This update includes many enhancements and new features as well as security updates and general improvements. Including:
New Facet Search Feature
Help your users find records quickly and easily with our brand-new facet search feature. When a user is presented with their search results, additional selectable options are shown to allow them to simply narrow down the results even further.
New Date Slider / Selector
Part of the new facet search feature includes our new data slider / selector. Allow users/patrons to narrow down the search results with a simple, easy to use date slider, ideal for collections where you can help users by filtering by date-based materials.
PDF Document Viewer
Our new on page PDF document viewer is available, ideal for those whose collections include attached PDF documents. When viewing a record, that contains a PDF file, you have the option to display the PDF on the same page, alongside the meta content.
This removes the need for users of the Search Portal to have Adobe Reader installed on their device. Users can read through the PDF and, where permissions are granted, can also print / download the PDF.
New Catalogue Entry and Edit
As we move towards a whole new cataloguing module in Soutron, the first phase is now available today. Our new catalogue entry (and edit) form is available and is part of our new admin pages. You can now take advantage of these new clean, easy to use features to help you and your team enter new records quickly and efficiently into Soutron.
Attach documents, images and PDFs by drag ‘n' drop. Inline edit and a new rich text editor are all part of this new and very easy to use interface. You can also present a quick entry form or ‘show all fields' toggle, should you wish to allow users to fill additional fields.
New Rich Text Editor Our new, easier to use rich text editor is now used throughout the Admin and Portal parts of the system.
These new capabilities are the result of using agile development and working closely with, and listening to, clients' needs. Our goal continues to provide a world class combined library, archive, knowledge and information management solution.
