Version 5.0

Version 5.0

Fully revamped user interface

An easy to use, redesigned user interface similar to the familiar Outlook user interface. Designed to increase user efficiency while searching for and managing documents.

Search centric design

Search is much faster than before.


Folders behave very similar to Windows Explorer folders. Create Folders and Sub-Folders to quickly categorize your documents. Hide a folder from specific users or share a folder with specific users.

Import entire folder structure

If you already have a well defined folder hierarchy in which you arrange your documents, you can easily import your documents along with your existing folder hierarchy in to GLOBODOX. The exact same folder hierarchy will be recreated in GLOBODOX.


Attach simple text tags to documents (think of it as attaching one or more labels to your documents). You can apply as many tags as required to a document. You can then search for documents to which a specific tag has been attached.

Document Types

Separate documents into various types (e.g. bills, checks, letters) and store type specific information along with each document. For e.g. you can store Date and Amount with each bill and then easily find all bills greater than US $100 from January 2008. Similarly you may want to store Sender Name and Date along with each letter.


Group documents into different types of stacks. For e.g. you can create a stack type called Supplier and group documents into different stacks (one for each supplier).


With the annotation feature you can draw, highlight, stamp, write comments, etc. directly over any scanned document. You can choose to burn the annotations on the image, so they become permanent part of the image.

Electronic Signature

A scanned image of a user’s signature can be stored and used as the user’s electronic signature. It can be applied on any part of a scanned document.

Document Notes

Store unlimited number of notes along with each document. Apart from the note text each note will contain the date, time as well as the name of user (note creator).


Documents can be linked to other documents or stacks.

Revamped Security

Create Users, Roles and Groups. Control access to your data and documents on a user by user basis. Decide who can view a document and who can edit it. Create Security Labels to apply identical permissions to multiple documents.

Share Documents

Share documents with users or groups of users with specific permission. For e.g. you can share a documents with UserA with View permissions and with UserB with View and Modify permissions.

Restrict Access

Restrict documents from a user or a group of users with just a few clicks.


Built in OCR automatically extracts text from scanned documents, making them searchable instantly. Option also available to use Microsoft Office OCR engine (if available).

View and edit OCR and extracted text

You can now view text extracted via OCR from scanned documents also text extracted via IFilters from other document types. You can edit and save this text. This provides a handy way to correct any OCR errors.


Fax one or more documents directly from GLOBODOX.

Web Client

With cross-browser support, the Web Client is more powerful and looks very similar to the Desktop Client.

Quick Multi-user setup

Quickly move from single user setup to a multi-user setup in a few easy steps.

Tightly integrated Workflow

Workflow is now fully integrated with GLOBODOX. You can now route documents with a single click and receive workflow tasks and messages right inside the application.

Burn documents to a CD/DVD

Use the built-in CD/DVD burning features to burn selected documents to a CD/DVD.

Create self-running CDs/DVDs with built-in searching and viewing capabilities (Add-On)

Use the optionally available CD/DVD Module to create self-running CDs/DVDs with built-in searching and viewing capabilities.

Drag and Drop text

Select and drag a piece of text from any source e.g. MS Word, Web page or from your email and drop it in GLOBODOX.

Bar Coded Separator Pages

Create bar coded separator pages during scanning to separate multi-page documents from each other.

Preview of MS Office files is now supported

Preview MS Word, MS Excel and MS PowerPoint files directly in GLOBODOX.
