DocSpace 4.1.0 is the initial release.
The following software is required for DocSpace.
- Windows Server® 2012 R2, 2016, 2019 or Microsoft Windows® 10
- Microsoft® .NET Framework 4.6.2 (If it is not detected, it is installed automatically.)
- Supported browsers: Google Chrome, Firefox, or Microsoft Edge
- Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2015-2019 x64
DocSpace updates the Runtime files during installation.
Note: If installing an ActivePDF product on a Windows 2012 R2 server for the first time, you must download and install two Microsoft updates for Windows 2012 R2 servers. The updates resolve issues with Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Runtime Components. For links and step-by-step instructions, see the ActivePDF Knowledge Base article Installing Products on Windows 2012 R2 Servers.
The minimum hardware requirements for DocSpace are:
- 4 GB of RAM
- 1 GB of hard disk space (for application)
- Extra disk space for the output files after processing
Input/Output Connector Requirements
Input and output connectors require an existing account and familiarity using the programs associated with the connectors. You must have an account for the connector type prior to accessing it in DocSpace; do not select a connector type unless you already have an account for that connector.
For example, to use the SharePoint Online connectors, you need a SharePoint Online account, and must know the SharePoint account settings, such as the URL, relative path to your files, account user names and passwords. You should also be familiar with using SharePoint (or the other programs associated with the connectors) before configuring them as your connector.
DocSpace consists of tasks, actions, and connectors that process your documents. DocSpace automates document processing, eliminating repetitive tasks and reducing errors, all in a simple, easy-to-use interface.
- Tasks: Configure how to process documents. There are three different types of tasks available:
- Basic Tasks: Basic tasks complete a single action, such as compression or stamping, without any additional configuration.
- Custom Tasks: Create or use Custom tasks to complete multiple actions (such as converting, then stamping, then compressing a document), and select a local or global action profile.
- Automation Tasks: Use a monitored input location to automatically process incoming files stored locally or in the cloud. Simply add documents to your input file location, and DocSpace automatically processes them.
- Actions: Tasks tell DocSpace what to do, actions are more specific, telling DocSpace how to do it. For example, a task tells DocSpace to convert a document; an action tells DocSpace to convert a Microsoft Word document into a JPEG image file.
- Connectors: Manage the input and output locations for your Automation Tasks. Input connectors link to where your source files are stored, and output connectors store the output PDF files after processing.
- Global Settings: Manage the system-wide settings.
- Perform accessibility-related function on documents.
- Run comparison analysis between documents.
- Convert files to/from PDF.
- Set document metadata.
- Extract data (text or images).
- Process forms.
- OCR documents.
- Optimize PDF files by compression or linearization.
- Append or prepend, delete, extract, replace, rotate, or stitch pages in a PDF.
- Redact sensitive information.
- Secure PDFs.
- Stamp documents with images or text.
- Validate the PDF/A file format.
- Deploy as either a desktop or service-based application.
