Working on our DMS today. We use WORLDOX, which is a DMS tailored to the legal profession.
Whoever originally set up our DMS did a horrible job and so I'm doing cleanup in preparation for moving the DMS and all of our other server based apps and files from the current Novell 5.1 servers to the new Dell PE 2650 Win 2003 server.
I'm still trying to figure out the best way to set up the directories and metadata fields to make it easier for everyone to find the documents they need and to also make it easier to keep field entry standardized.
Right now, we have too many generic doc types and practice areas in those two search fields so some people tag a standard document as a document and others as misc. Part of it's a training issue which we are also working on, but my boss, the "tech" partner and I think that the field structure should be much simpler. Limited to Client number, matter number, author and typist.
Would be helpful if there was at least one good book on administering WORLDOX, but I haven't been able to find one.
Anyone else out there have any DMS suggestions, books to read on the subject or informative websites?
