Synergize Server

As an administrator, you can configure settings for Synergize server.

Versioning: The concept of keeping track of different versions of your documents is a key part of any document management system. With Synergize, you can manage multiple versions of files you've stored as "assets" or "images".

When you have the checkout directory configured, you can "check out" a file and either replace it in the repository by updating it, or store a new version of the file, keeping the old version as well. Later you can access a specific version of the document, for auditing or legal purposes.

Transformations: When you ask to see an image of the document from the Synergize server, you may see a transformed version of the image. For example, a Word document may be presented to you as a PDF. You can choose to download or view a document in its native form. By default, however, the image viewer will show you the transformed version if one has been defined in the "default transformations" settings.

Unless otherwise specified, the image viewer shows the transformed version of a document image if one has been defined in the "default transformations" settings. To map a document extension to one of the available transformations, access the Transformation settings through the Advanced option on the repository panel.
