WebMail and WebAide Enhancements: Focus on Tagging

Published: May 5th, 2008
LuxSci has introduced significant user interface improvements related to email and WebAide tagging and the look and feel of the user interface.
 
Improved Look and Feel: LuxSci has improved the look and feel of its WebMail interface by introducing revised Vista-like icon library and by updating the presentation of many dialog boxes.
 
WebMail Tagging Improvements: WebMail now takes advantage of the knowledge of what tags have been used previously on an email folder to make the addition of new tags to messages easier and to make searching for messages based on tag more intuitive.
 
Email Folder Management: The "properties" an an email folder that you can access via the email folder management tool now pop-up in a dialog box. This significantly enhances usability, simplifies the presentation of the tool, and makes the interface more intuitive. Users can now also edit the properties of an email folder directly from the WebMail message list interface.
 
WebAide Management: The "properties" an a WebAide that you can access via the WebAide management tool now pop-up in a dialog box. This significantly enhances usability, simplifies the presentation of the tool, and makes the interface more intuitive. Users can now also edit the properties of a WebAide directly from the WebAide interface.
 
WebAide Import and Export: All of the import and export functions of WebAides have been moved into the "Properties" page for the WebAide, available in the WebAide management area. Now, all administrative functions for WebAides are consolidated into that single interface. Additionally, all WebAide exports now support the option to only export those entries matching your most recent advanced search. Also, you can now export WebAide eJournals, Links, Notes, and Documents as XML and CSV files.
 
Improved Tag Management: The email message tag management dialog box has been improved to make the addition and removal of tags faster and easier. It is also now possible to create new tags right from this dialog box.

WebAides Replace "Categories" with "Tags": WebAide categories have been replaced with a "tagging" functionality identical to that used in WebMail. This allows users to use the same add/remove tag interface and the same list of tags with both WebMail messages and WebAides entries (i.e. calendar items, address book entries, etc.). Unlike with categories, tags no long have to be "pre-defined" to be used with a WebAide and anyone who can edit an entry can tag it.

The option to display the list of entries in a WebAide by "category index pages" has been removed; all WebAides can be filtered by Tag now using the "View" selection, just like in WebMail.

WebAides "Tag" Features: WebAide users can now remove tags, rename tags, and move entries from one tag to another using the new "Tags" WebAide property editor.
