The Arkkeo Team has been hard at work for the past couple of months, improving and tweaking the service based on your valuable feedback. As a result, we’re pleased to announce several new and improved features in Arkkeo.
The document archive has gone through a major design makeover to improve its looks and usability. The biggest visible change is the way information is presented. The date, categories, tags and shares are now shown underneath the document name and the sender of the document is conveniently located on the right hand side or each row. This makes the entire browsing experience a bit more enjoyable.
Our goal was to change the focus from listing documents to provide more value per document. We learned that it is more important for our users to see information of a single document than to maximize the number of documents presented in the archive view. This proved to be right as now the archive view is more practical and looks much better too!
Search, filters and sorting
The filter bar has been fine-tuned to make finding documents even faster and easier than before. Documents can be searched for by name and filtered by company, person, categories, tags and file types. Selected filters are shown on top of the search results where they can be easily removed by clicking individual filters or by using the ‘clear selection’ button.
If searching and filtering do not produce the desired outcome, search results can now be sorted in three different ways: by date received/uploaded, by timestamp (more about this in the next section) and by file name.
Brand new document view
Most documents can now be previewed in Arkkeo by clicking the document name or document type (shown in turquoise blue). This new feature gives you more information and control over your documents. In addition viewing and editing document details such as file name, tags etc., document view enables you to add timestamps and comments to your documents.
Comments allow you to append any document with additional notes, plus you can converse and exchange ideas with people you have shared the document with.
A timestamp is a custom date that you can add to any document. For example, a copy of your high school diploma could be marked with your graduation date (e.g. May 5, 2003). The timestamp associates the file with a specific time period in the past and makes it easier to find later on.
Password recovery made simple and more secure
You can now choose from three different password recovery options – security question, alternate email and text message. All three options provide an extra layer of security to your account if you ever need to reset your forgotten password.
- Security question – Before resetting your password, Arkkeo will verify your identity using a security question of your choice. We recommend that you use a question that cannot be answered or guessed easily by anyone but you.
- Alternate email – Before resetting your password, Arkkeo will verify your identity using an alternate email address. This method prevents people from gaining access to your Arkkeo account even if they have access to your primary email address.
- Text message – Before resetting your password, Arkkeo will verify your identity using a security code sent via text message to your mobile phone.
