Collection basics

A file can be assigned to various collections and shared with various groups or individuals in CenterDevice. Hence it can be found in multiple „virtual drawers“ but these are only different views of the same file instance. This way your teams keep working on a unique, consistent file.

Private collections

Group your documents in collections according to their content. This content-related organization provides structure to large projects and concentrates information. Your collections are only visible to you until you choose to share them.

Shared collections

Public collections are collections that are shared with individuals, groups or through a link. Shared collections can be found, searched and subscribed by internal users. One document can be present in multiple collections, but it always remains one document. No more duplicates – that’s good news for teams.

Comprehensive information at first glance

A log function lists each document related action, such as downloads, uploads, shares, versions, comments, and tags, along with the initiator’s name and a time stamp. This log is visible for both internal and external users and it can be created at summary, collection and document level.

Audit Log for enhanced security

The Audit Log is an extended protocol that records events within a collection, including views and downloads. It can only be used if expressly agreed to by users. The collection owner is the only person who can view the Audit Log. This is an ideal tool for M&A processes, building projects and tender procedures, where information flow and notice taking must be recorded.

RESTful API/OAuth ensures integration options

Log information can also be accessed via RESTful API. CenterDevice includes a RESTful API/OAuth that enables integration of CenterDevice features into a corporate software system, while ensuring secure authentication at the same time.
