LuxSci Web Interface Updates in Beta

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

LuxSci has finished the next in a series of updates to its WebMail and WebAide user interfaces.  The purpose of these updates is to:

  1. Save space by reducing the screen space used for commands and options
  2. Simplify by reducing the clutter and visual overload of available options, such that only the most commonly used commands are present
  3. Simplify by visually disabling options that are not currently available (e.g. delete when nothing is selected to delete)
  4. Enable the above simplifications without taking away any available features … and in fact leaving room for the addition of new features without negatively impacting the user interface.

These updates are scheduled to be released on Friday evening, February 6th.  If you would like to try them out ahead of time, please login to our Beta site: https://beta.luxsci.com.

LuxSci WebMail Interface Revisions

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

LuxSci has just released the latest in a series of updates to its WebMail interface.  These updates, which will occur in stages over the next 3-6 months, are designed to enhance the speed and usability of WebMail and to introduce a series of new and often requested features.

This revision (the first since the update to the WebMail Composer this summer) is mostly cosmetic — introducing a series of stylistic and layout changes forming a basis for successive updates. Some of the most notable aspects of this release include:

  1. Cleaner and more visually appealing
  2. A simplified tree of folders on the left
  3. Drag and drop works on touch devices (e.g. iPad)
  4. The “Folders” menu has been moved in to the “gear” icon  at the top of the “Email Folders” area.

Similar changes have been made to the “WebAides” interfaces for managing Calendars, Tasks, Address Books, etc.

What is in the works?

HIPAA Alert: Contacts, Calendar Events and Tasks may contain ePHI!

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

When health care organizations review their operations to see where electronic protected health information (ePHI) is being saved, transmitted, and viewed, a great deal of time is spent on the obvious candidates: email, chat, stored files, and health records, etc.

Many overlook the fact that ePHI can be embedded in Contacts, Calendars, and Tasks.  Consider for example:

File Drag and Drop for WebMail, SecureLine, and File Manager

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

Upload single or multiple files via drag and drop from your desktop instead of clicking and selecting files individually.

Recent versions of most popular web browsers (including Internet Explorer v10+) include features that allow web sites to receive files dropped on them from your desktop and that allow web sites to upload these files in the background (e.g. while you are composing an email), giving you a progress bar so you can see how the upload is doing.

Indeed, drag and drop file uploads to web sites are becoming the “new normal” with the old method of clicking on individual file upload fields to select a file from your browser being “old school” for any place where files are frequently accessed.

Best Practices: Removing all copies of an email from an email server

Monday, June 10th, 2013

These questions arise over and over:

How do I prevent copies of my email (inbox/sent) from being backed up on your servers?

Is there an automatic way to do this?

What if I only want data saved on servers if it is encrypted?

Where are the other copies stored?

Can I use a WebAide to auto save/encrypt email and attachments and remove any copies received/sent?

We’ll answer these questions in general and in the context of LuxSci.

Checkboxes are back … by popular demand

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Users can now optionally use checkboxes to select multiple email messages and/or WebAide entries (e.g. contacts, passwords, files, etc.) in our regular web interface.

Up until about 2007,  LuxSci used checkboxes as the primary and only way to select email messages or WebAide entries for operations such as deletion, copying, etc.  In June 2007, we introduced our first AJAX-based WebMail interface — which made WebMail look and work like a desktop email program.  With this change came the shift from selecting an email message by clicking on checkboxes to clicking on the message “row”.  Selecting multiple messages is done by control-clicking and shift-clicking.

While this paradigm is still the standard in most desktop email programs, many Web-based email interfaces continue to use checkboxes for selecting messages and we have had multiple requests from customers for this functionality.

LuxSci Enhancements: Highlights of Recent Minor Updates

Friday, October 26th, 2012

The LuxSci development team is constantly adding to and improving the LuxSci experience.  Sometimes this comes in the form of big changes, such as the recent addition of customer-configurable firewalls or “watching” WebAides to be informed of updates and changes to files, blogs, calendars, etc.  Other times, it comes in the form of many smaller changes.  Below, we list many of the recent changes that you may not have noticed but might find useful.

Watch It! Be notified of changes to WebAide Contacts, Calendars, Blog posts, Document storage, Tasks, etc.

Monday, September 24th, 2012

When collaborating with others, you sometimes want to be informed quickly of added or changed information.  E.g. a newly uploaded file, an edited contact, a new task, a new blog post, etc.

LuxSci’s WebAides now support “Watching”.  Users can choose to “watch” any WebAide that they have read access to (their own, or others that are shared with them).  Once a user is watching a WebAide, the user will be emailed notices of any new or changed entries within minutes of those changes.

LuxSci HIPAA Services a Perfect Fit for Home Health Care Agencies

Monday, August 27th, 2012

LuxSci’s HIPAA-compliant email services (see overview video) are a big hit in many different sectors, from legal, to accounting, to the myriad facets of the health care industry.  Why? Because it ensures security and compliance, enables privacy, is easy to use, and integrates well with traditional work flows.

As a case in point, we see that many “Home Health Care” companies find the breadth of our services a particularly good fit for them — enabling them to communicate quickly, efficiently, and securely while everyone is on the go.

Organize Your Documents, Calendars, Tasks, Contacts in nested sub-folders

Friday, May 4th, 2012

LuxSci’s WebAides empower you to collaborate on Calendars, Tasks, Contacts, Files, Links, Notes, Passwords, and more.

While you could always create multiple Documents containers for storing files, or multiple Address Books for contacts, there was not a way to organize via a nested file/folder structure (like the file structure on your computer) or to have Task lists organized in a hierarchical manner.
