LL Navigator is a single page application (more) and consists of a single HTML file.
The tool is very easy to use because it mimics Windows Explorer in a browser. An important feature is that it extends the standard Content Server functionality: users can access standard Content Server functionality such as versions, audit data, etc.. from within the LL Navigator page.
Deploying the tool is easy: upload the single HTML file (240 kB) to Content Server. To launch the tool simply open the HTML file (or use an additional option in the Enterprise menu). There is no need to install software on the servers or the client computers.
LL Navigator in-depth
Navigate through your system using the Windows Explorer like tree. Upload documents or folders from your local system or file server using drag and drop. The selection pane shows the selected items to ensure the proper items have been selected.
Click “Upload” to start the uploading of the content. LL Navigator supports Content Server categories. In case there are categories with required attributes a window is shown where the user can enter the required metadata fields.
LL Navigator also enables copying / moving items within Content Server using drag and drop. Select the items that needs to be copied / moved and drag it to the target location.
Content Server supports downloading multiple documents but lacks support for downloading folders. LL Navigator provides functionality to download folders in order to extract content from Content Server in a simple, fast and robust way.
LL Navigator automatically extracts email metadata such as To, From, Subject, … from msg files and populates the email metadata fields in Content Server. The emails are uploaded as email objects (objtype 749). The extracted email metadata allows for powerful searches and sorting. In addition, emails can be previewed in the browser without opening the email in the local mail client. The preview also allows direct opening of email attachments.
The capability to extract metadata from emails and support for metadata enables organisations to use Content Server as an email archiving solution.
LL Navigator provides part of the functionality offered by OpenText Enterprise Connect such as uploading folders, extract email metadata, … but the tool does not offer integration with Office (e.g. Word, Excel, Outlook, …). The key benefit of LL Navigator is that it does not require installation on the client computers.
The interface offered by LL Navigator allows users to create new items such as documents and folders, delete items and select multiple items. LL Navigator also supports the use of Favourites and “Last Location” to allow users to quickly access previously used locations in the Content Server hierarchy.
