Introducing Vizit 6 for SharePoint

Vizit provides solutions that enhance SharePoint usability, SharePoint search, and SharePoint document reviews and we’re pleased to announce the general availability of Vizit 6. This latest release of Vizit builds on our core legacy of providing world class previewing and viewing solutions for Microsoft SharePoint by enhancing Vizit Essential’s PDF & Email capabilities, and greatly expanding Vizit Pro’s annotation capabilities. By popular demand Vizit 6 also extends thumbnail previews to SharePoint 2013 Document Libraries for both Vizit Essential and Vizit Pro.

Email Attachments

Vizit Essential has always provided the ability to quickly view email messages in SharePoint (Vizit supports .msg, .eml, .emlx file types). Now users can view and navigate email attachments as a natural extension of viewing an email message in SharePoint. A new slide-out panel has been added to Vizit Essential which provides a thumbnail preview of all email attachments. Users open the panel by selecting the familiar paperclip icon, and can open any attachment by simply clicking on its first page preview.

Users can simply place their mouse over the file type icon in any SharePoint library where Vizit is enabled to see the first page of a document. Clicking on this icon launches the Vizit Essential or Pro viewer for full file access.

PDF Bookmarks

A new slide-out panel has been added to Vizit Essential enabling users to navigate PDF documents using existing bookmarks. Support of PDF bookmarks adds another method for users to navigate directly to what the user seeks in SharePoint files. Vizit conducted a survey of over 1,200 organizations using SharePoint that revealed most SharePoint file searches seek something more granular than the file itself. This is typically a key exhibit or passage. PDF bookmarks provide an additional navigation method for users to locate the information.

This enhancement provides an unlimited number of annotation possibilities to integrators and their end users.
