New updates and improvements to NAIX



Simplifying File Management

With this update, we've made searching for your files even easier:

  • Introducing our new folder hierarchy feature in the file explorer
  • Enjoy color tagging for your documents
  • Benefit from various bug fixes, including document filter and search-saving improvements



Comment on documents

With this update, communication has been made easy:

  • The functionality to text while working on the document is now available!



New API Endpoints

Sign in using Google

With this new update, you will now be able to:

  • Use Google as a login option



Processing Options

With this update, we will be introducing our first processing option:

  • Deskewing: Checks each scanned page if it needs to be rotated to compensate for skewing (the sudden change in document rotation randomly). In rare cases, this can cause pages to be upside down. Deskewing depends on the quality of the scan. You have the option to turn it off if you are certain that your documents are oriented correctly.



User Interface translated to French

  • New restricted functionalities for basic team members

Bug fixes:

  • Team creation in privileged mode
  • Malfunctioning of previous and next buttons in editor



Disable team creation

With this new update comes exciting new updates to the On-prem feature! On-prem clients can now select who gets to create a team. Super users / system administrators can turn on a flag that prevents other application users from creating a new team. Other improvements include:


  • Allow only super users to create teams (on-prem only)


  • Cleanup downloaded files
  • Show user email in team and project
  • Make all selection inputs have a standardised look


  • Truncate user name in navigation bar

  • Change icon handling
  • Dispatch document downloads faster
  • Make folder navigation scrollable


  • Fix downloads getting stuck in status waiting
  • Fix zip file upload being prevented under unknown circumstances
  • Fix downloads for Windows users



Zoom in and out of documents

With this new update we bring you the possibility to zoom in and out of documents. Other updates include:


  • Show folder names in the download table

Auto Invite

This update brings the ability to automatically add users to teams (on-prem only). Along with this update you will also be able to:

  • Rename folders
  • Filter documents by Language



2FA via setup key

It is now possible to use a setup key to configure your two factor authentication.

Bug fixes:

  • fix document search behaviour
  • prevent individual words in graphics from having the entire graphic redacted
  • show longer document names in the editor



Secure Admin Area

On-premise installations have now access to the first iteration of a secure super admin dashboard. In this first iteration it is possible to configure the SMTP server configuration and the Identity Provider configuration to either use OpenID Connect or SAML 2.0.

Additional changes:

  • append new list words to lists one by one instead of overriding all list words
  • remove auto-accept invitations (OpenID Connect or SAML 2.0)



Project statistics

On the projects listing a summary of basic information for each project can be found, such as credits spent, the number of project members or the number of current documents.



Command palette

Open a brand new command palette via Cmd+K / Ctrl+K to quickly navigate between the main pages.

The document search in the editor has a new look. It has been removed from the footer bar and replaced by a small overlay tile in the top right corner. The document search can be opened via Cmd+F / Ctrl+F.

Additional changes

  • allow self-signed certificates for encrypted STMP mail communication
  • fix focus on input elements
  • show error message when downloading unready documents



SAML 2.0 authentication flow

On-premise installations can now be configured to authenticate against a SAML 2.0 Identity Provider. Next to OpenID Connect this is the second alternative to create accounts other than the registration via email and password.

In the rare case of an unexpected error new error pages will provide a general explanation of the problem and a convenient way to get back to the application.

Additional changes

  • fix popover menus and open folder state
  • allow only admins to see the team dashboard
  • fix credit display when not allowed to buy credits
  • add missing translations



Document Retention Policy and Default Presets

It is now possible to define a document retention policy in your project. Specify a number of days your document shall be retained. Documents that were not modified within that period will be deleted automatically.

Documents will be set in progress automatically when a user opens them in the editor. There are new buttons in the bottom toolbar to quickly set the document's status to done or even final. This makes working with the document status more intuitiv and easier. Fellow project members will see the progress on each document.

Additionally you can configure a preset as the default preset of a project. This default will then be applied to each newly uploaded document.



French Language Support

The NAIX application now supports the French language.

Additionally, we are pleased to introduce Streamlined Table Components. The data tables within the NAIX application now have a streamlined look and feel. The tables can be sorted and filtered by relevant information. When working with large amounts of data, the new table improves performance by using pagination and loading only a limited number of records at a time. Page navigation at the bottom of the table makes it easy to jump to previous or next records.



Add German UI Translation

Users can now switch to German language in their user profile.

Additionally, the NAIX software has switched from a page-based to a document-based approach regarding credit usage. Each document will now cost one credit, regardless of how many pages the document consists of. Effective immediately, all new subscriptions or redeemed licenses will have their credit usage for that team changed to the new document-based approach.

Additional changes:

  • fix error when applying presets to documents
  • close modal windows on ESC and click outside



Pause And Resume Documents

It is now possible to pause a document on a specific page. When you come back later to continue your work, the document will automatically open on the exact page you left previously.

Additional changes

  • fix adding words to document lists
  • fix batch downloads
  • fix moving documents to home folder



Audit Trail

Changes to your team, projects and resources will now be automatically logged through our new Audit Trail implementation. We securely generate timestamped records that allow you to track the history of events related to the creation, modification or deletion of data. As of now, all audit records will be retained for 30 days before being completely removed. In the future, we plan to allow teams to configure the retention period for their audit records.

Additionally, we've added navigation buttons to our editor that allow you to quickly navigate between documents in your current workspace. This saves even more time in the redaction process.

Additional changes

  • add new selectable entity: corporate forms



Introducing Projects

Document sharing among team members has always been a powerful feature of our application. As a result of client feedback, we are excited to introduce a much more intuitive way to do this. Instead of sharing each document individually with your team, there is now a project-based approach. Each team can create as many projects as they need to perfectly scope its matters. Everything added or created in a project stays within the project.

You can flexibly add your team members to projects and assign them a role within each project - even different roles in different projects if you like. Currently, there are four predefined roles like the editor, who is actually allowed to make changes to your documents, or like the reviewer, whose job is to review but not change.

  • improve the performance of the editor
  • make the multiple selection of words in the editor more intuitive



Updated NLP

For this release, our developers made some considerable improvements to our toolset used to process text. That immediately results in better detection of personal information and our entities for newly processed documents.

Our new set of tags will also allow us to introduce a more fine-grained control of word detection in the future, e.g., if you would like to redact a cities postcode but not the city name itself.

Another part of this release is the ability to upload lists via a CSV file. You can find the new upload form in your list settings. The CSV file should contain two columns, the first column will identify a word, and the second is optional if you use our pseudonymization feature.

  • fix a bug where the context menu gets not closed properly
  • better security for changing your email by implementing a double opt-in
  • we now show an error if you open an invalid file in the editor



The Streamline Update

For this release, our developers reworked the whole UI of the NAIX application. We're proud to announce, that we could achieve some impressive performance gains. Navigation between pages is now done by asynchronous requests, which means no full page loads at all. Also, we reworked our settings screens, including the managing of your team. You can find your billing information on a completely redesigned portal page, which offers a much better experience.

In terms of security, we added a new two-factor authentication feature. You can activate it on your profile page. All you need for this to work is an authenticator app like the Google Authenticator or the Authy app. Make sure to save your recovery codes in the activation process.

  • add public API endpoints to manage lists
  • add versioned lists, which may be used to recover unintended changes in a future release
  • fix some checks on uploaded files
  • fix a disappearing share button on status updates
