What’s New

January 2020

After months of hard work, we are proud to present to you SPDocKit 10.0! This new update comes with a great deal of improvements and some new reports. If you’re not yet a customer, download a free trial.

Have more control over custom solutions settings 10.0

Tracking what’s going on with your custom solutions’ settings is necessary if you want to keep control over how your SharePoint looks and feels.

With this thought in mind, we have added property bag reporting to our Farm Explorer. SPDocKit will sum up all your property bags and display them in three reports – farm, web app, and site collection level property bags.

This display makes your life easier as you don’t have this kind of reporting in a native admin center.

Also, you can use our Compare Wizard to see from a single glance what has changed in each of the property bags. This way, you can track custom solution property changes on one display without actually drilling into property bags in the SharePoint Designer.

Analyze user activity in more detail10.0

We have improved our Site Visitors report, and now it shows the last activity for each user that visited the site. Knowing the login time is valuable if you want to track user activity in your environment successfully.

Have more flexibility within Analytics reports 10.0

Analytics reports now have additional date filter values of 7, 30, 60, 90, and 120 days. These new filters give you more flexibility when analyzing your content usage, search trends, and storage growth.

Get a deeper insight into how your Search works 10.0

We understand how valuable SharePoint Search is to users in their daily work, especially in large environments. When they need to find some documents quickly, the search tool is the most obvious solution. That’s why we continuously improve our SharePoint Search reports. In our last update, we introduced powerful search analytics reporting, and now we’ve added new Search settings reports!

On top of the reports on the total search number, failed, and abandoned searches, you can now get information on query client types and result sources on a farm level. Administrators can find client-type details much faster than in the out-of-the-box admin center. They can use that information to make sure lower-priority clients like automated queries don’t squeeze out higher-priority clients like UI.

Also, you can gain more insight into query rules, its conditions, and results. The first of those reports shows all query rules that exist in your farm, along with the conditions that make those query rules fire.

The second one shows the query rules results.

There’s also a new report on the crawler impact rule setup. A crawler impact rule defines the rate at which the SharePoint Search service requests documents from a Web site during crawling. If the request rate is too frequent, the search service can overload a website with requests, making it too slow. You can avoid those situations by regularly checking the impact rule report.

We have taken your feedback into account and granted your wishes. From this release on, you can also customize your Excel-exported documentation! Make your farm documentation more professional with a branded Excel header and footer.
