Dec 14, 2010

We are very excited to share with you the most recent 3.12 software update. In order to simplify the system and make it more powerful, key workflows like editing metadata and assigning jobs to users are streamlined and additional security measures are added.
Here are some highlights and direct support URLs for the major feature updates:
Metadata Editor: Support Site Link
Some of our clients use GLOBALedit’s metadata editor extensively to caption stills from movie or television production. This workflow is now much faster and simpler. You can Tab through fields and automatically save your changes with fewer confirmation dialogs.

You can also easily export a metadata report as a single CSV file for your records.

Job Access: Support Site Link
The job assignment workflow has been streamlined to make it easier for you to quickly give many users access to many jobs. Now, you can start typing the first few letters of the job and/or user you wish to assign and GLOBALedit will automatically complete the rest of the field with matching job or user names. It’s also a lot faster to assign multiple jobs or users as well as to search existing assignments.

Password Security: Support Site Link
A big update that we’ve implemented for this release is increased password security. GLOBALedit now allows administrators to generate one-time login links for their users’ accounts, which expire after one session. This gives admins the ability to ensure user accounts are working correctly while keeping passwords safe and accounts secure.
Here is the full list features and changes for the GLOBALedit 3.12 update:

  • Remove admin ability to obtain user credentials to increase security
