  • Configure a certificate file along with a password
  • Protect pdf files from unwanted changes

Note
Digital document signing is a software-based process that places encrypted data within your document. It should not be confused with electronic signature (e.g., your name typed or drawn into the document)

 

User defined sorting scan profiles

  • Configure how scan profiles are displayed on the MFD panel
  • Use either ascending, descending or user defined sorting

 

Password protect Drivve | Image admin application

  • Configure a password to secure the Drivve | Image admin application
  • Make sure only authorized people can modify the Drivve | Image configuration
  • Protect you scan profiles from unwanted changes
  • Includes “Forgot password” function via e-mail

 

New formats in professional OCR

  • New formats have been added to the professional OCR module:
    • PPTX: Microsoft PowerPoint files
    • ePub: Electronic Publication. EPUB is supported by many e-readers, and compatible software is available for most smartphones, tablets, and computers.
    • XPS: Open XML Paper Specification (also referred to as OpenXPS) is an open specification for a page description language and a fixed-document format. Microsoft developed it as the XML Paper Specification.
    • Html: Html file format. It supports the “all in one file” option where all images are encoded into the html file.

Enhancements

Optimized OCR on text PDFs

A new option in zonal- and full page OCR lets you specify to use the existing text of a text pdf without having to render the PDF to an image and run OCR. That way the performance is dramatically enhanced and also accuracy is improved. The administrator can define the minimum number of characters that the pdf file must contain in order to be identified as a text pdf. In this way, you can ensure that PDF files that contain only a few characters of text - e.g. text stamps, etc. - are not mistakenly identified as text PDF.

 

Improved PDF compression

PDF compression has been further improved to minimize PDF file sizes.

 

Use Local System account

Use the account Local System as the account used for the Drivve | Image service and the IIS application. This is required in high-security environments where company policies do not allow to create a separate user account for the Drivve | Image services.

 

OCR separation and use of OCR zones

Now you can use OCR separation and OCR zones within one scan profile and utilizing both for processing. In earlier versions of Drivve | Image you could not use the OCR zone information of each separated document.

 

Disable duplex for routing

When routing one document to another scan profile, the duplex option can be turned off. This is useful when you would like to treat a duplex scanned document as a simplex document in document separation.

 

Document-Open password

It is now also possible to assign a document open password to a PDF independently of the administrator password.

Release Notes Version 8.4.220 (March 19th 2020)

Error corrections

  • Options / Profile / Print preference: You can now select the preferred method for PDF printing per profile (Foxit, Adobe Acrobat, internal)

 

Release Notes Version 8.2.045 (September 1st, 2018)

New Features

Support of Ricoh® devices

Drivve | Image now supports Ricoh® devices. All SOP-enabled Ricoh® devices are supported. If a device does not feature a Ricoh®  Smart Operation Panel, please check if there is an optional upgrade available for your model, so the Ricoh SmartSDK, successor of SDK Type-J (SDK/J), Web API and the WebBrowserNX can be made available for the seamless integration of Drivve | Image.

 

House keeping for backup files

The option to turn on backup creation for scanned documents in Tools/Options/Advanced has been supplemented by a configurable housekeeping.

By opening the configuration of the backup option, you can now set a time for the housekeeping, a file age or size threshold and whether the documents should be permanently deleted or moved to the recycle bin.

 

Configurable authentication method for file output

As known from other output connectors, the option to use a Windows account other than the Drivve | Image service account or prefer / always use the logged on user's credentials for the file upload has been implemented.

Enhancements

Simplified device registration

An automatic detection mode for the device manufacturer has been added to the device management.

 

Conversion to secured PDF

An admin password (for unrestricted access) can now either be configured to be set at the device panel or be defined for the profile.

In addition a limited access password can be defined for the profile, as well as which functions can be accessed with this password.

 

E-Mail output via Exchange Server

An option to try a "Send as" submission of the mail has been implemented, in case no user credentials are available.

 

Barcode Recognition

An option has been implemented to limit the barcode recognition to front sides only for duplex scans.

An option has been implemented to automatically vary various settings in case the expected number of barcodes has not been found with the defined settings. Accordingly the settings to erode / dilate and retry will only take effect, if the expected number of barcodes has not been found on the unoptimized document.

An option "duplex" has been added to the barcode recognition test mode.

 

Server Processing Licenses / Universal Device Licenses

To enable the use of duplex-scan specific image processing  (e.g. for barcode or separation page recognition) on documents, that do not origin from an integrated device,  an option Duplex Mode has been implemented for SPL / UDL profiles at Options / Profile Preferences / UDL/SPL. If this option is set, the profile will treat all documents as if they have been scanned in duplex mode. 

 

Image Processing

Advanced settings for despeckle have been implemented.

 

Xerox

An original size setting has been implemented for Xerox devices as an alternative to using Xerox templates. 

Release Notes Version 8.0.895 (August 30th, 2018)

  • Processing/Image Processing: Under certain circumstances, Deskew in combination with Conversion to a PDF Format with I.R.I.S. as conversion engine, the resulting pages might have been created with different page formats for pages with hand written annotations.
  • Processing/Bates Numbering: The bates stamp was not properly inserted into documents when a searchable PDF format was selected for the output.
  • Processing/Bates Numbering: Some variables did not get resolved as expected when being used as prefix for the bates stamp.
  • Processing/Barcode Recognition: Under certain circumstances barcodes with colored background were only recognized on PDF documents when using a precise recognition zone.
  • Processing/Barcode Recognition: If a recognition zone was defined, the barcode recognition was not properly limited to the defined zone. This did also affect separation by barcodes.
  • Processing/Barcode Recognition: Invalid characters in a recognized barcode, that would violate the XML standard, broke the DI process.
  • Processing/Barcode separation: Under certain circumstances, the recognized separation barcode of a page has incorrectly be passed onto the next page's metadata.
  • Processing/Barcode separation: In duplex mode, the option "delete separation page" only deleted the actual page containing the separation barcode. In duplex mode the expected behavior is that the following page is getting deleted too (deletion of the separation sheet).
  • Processing/Separation by blank page: In duplex mode documents might have been separated if an uneven page was empty, though the following page did contain content. In duplex mode the expected behavior is that only empty sheets (=both sides empty) do trigger separation.
  • Output/Other/Print: The printing of documents might not have worked if the installed PDF reader was Acrobat Reader DC.
  • Output/File Output/ROUTE: Route output did not work if the source as well as the target profiles were UDL profiles.
  • Options/Profile Preferences/Email notification: The variables referring to filename and filepath have not been properly resolved for the notification mail text.
  • Output/Email: The output to Gmail was broken
  • Output/Email: If no name was defined for a recipient, the recipients mail address was extended by < >.
  • Output/OneDrive: Under certain circumstances, connecting with the logged on user was not possible, if the user domain is a fixed part of the template URL.
  • Output/OneDrive: Root couldn't be selected as target directory.
  • Output/Route: If route was defined as output for a profile without active file output, a copy of each output was stored below ...\Drivve\Drivve Image\DefaultOutput
  • Options/Printer/Scan&Print: Activating Scan&Print might have invoked 2 copies being printed instead of one.
  • Server Processing Licenses: If the file name of an input file exceeded a certain length, the processing failed without explicit notice. A clearer message has been included in the logs, in case the total length of processing paths & file name exceeds the restriction of the Microsoft API.
  • If orphaned files (the image file without the metadata file or vice versa), or files created for a profile that has been deleted in the meantime, where found in ...\Drivve\Drivve Image\work\tmp, the Drivve Image process stopped.
  • Print profiles: Under certain circumstances print profiles were no longer shown, if no user was logged on to the device.
  • Datasource/LDAP: It was possible to save a datasource with authentication type Secure(Kerberos) without actually providing user credentials.
  • Lexmark: The Android app did not properly register on some newer framework 5/6 devices. 
  • Lexmark: The option "print after scan" could not be suppressed from the device ui.

Release Notes Version 8.0.845 (June 8th, 2018) 

Enhancements

Server Processing Licenses

  • Too many subfolders prevented proper file monitoring of a  profile's root folder.  A Warning was implemented in the log to point out if too many subfolders do exist.
  • You can check available pages per month and pages still available for the current month by selecting a SPL monitored folder in device management
  • If the Drivve | Image services are stopped while documents are still scheduled for processing, the scheduled documents in the internal Drivve | Image working folder will be processed first after restart of the services. Therefore no new documents will be moved from the monitored folder before the formerly scheduled documents have been processed. This will prevent a flooding of the internal processing lists in case of multiple restarts in short order while the monitored folder contains several thousand documents. 

 

Universal Device Licenses

  • You can check available pages per month and pages still available for the current month and  by selecting an UDL device in device management.
  • Universal Device Licenses: Variables like original file name, file creation date and time are now choosable in the variables menu for input fields.

 

Supported file formats from scanning device

  • For some vendors old single page formats could still be configured in the device settings. This resulted in possible issues with current multi page processing services. Therefore old single page image formats (e.g. JPEG) have been removed from the list of default formats to choose in  the manufacturers' device dialogue settings.

Error corrections

The following errors have been solved in the current version:

  • After update to DI 8.0.790 no profiles were shown on Kyocera devices
  • Some QR codes couldn't be recognized. The barcode reader engine threw a license error.
  • The Output to Drivve | DM had an issue identifying the correct database instance, if the instance ID of one database was the same as the instance name of another database.
  • The settings for "Add OCR text" in DM output did not provide a language list occasionally.
  • The barcode recognition might not have worked if invalid characters (e.g. backspace) were included in the barcode.
  • Universal device licenses - Email-Monitoring: Metadata import via csv file did not work, only import of XML files did work as expected.
  • Universal device licenses - scan to ftp: Some ftp paths, which were shown html encoded in the Drivve | Image configuration interface, did not work as desired.
  • Bates Numbering: If image and text stamping were combined in bates settings, the positions of the applied stamp elements were off.
  • Setting of PDF file properties like title, author, etc. only worked for variable values when converting to searchable formats with the IRIS engine.
  • OCR separation did not work with two AND conditions.
  • Key labels of the Drivve | Image keyboard for various languages and manufacturers have been corrected.

Release Notes Version 8.0.790 (May 2nd, 2018)

Error Corrections

The following errors have been solved in the current version:

  • Under certain circumstances an orphaned meta-file in the internal Drivve | Image directory stopped further job processing until the Drivve | Image services were restarted.
  • Separation by barcode did not work if a filter was set before that did not match the barcode, even if the filter was disabled. The disabled filter criteria was still applied.
  • Sometimes the internal replacement function for illegal characters in file names replaced all characters of the file name by underscores (_).
  • IMAP monitoring - non- image files (e.g. Word documents) got deleted instead of routed to the output target, even if no mime type filter was set.
  • File output: OCR-Zone result could not be exported into the XML file by the corresponding option of the xml preferences.
  • Character list had no effect on zonal OCR result
  • The Test - function of the barcode recognition did not work as desired.
  • Debug folders per job were created under ...\log although debug mode was not enabled.
  • Bates numbering - The number was incremented per page including blank pages that were deleted. This resulted in broken numbering sequences.
  • Separation by barcode - Settings of the image preprocessing was copied to the barcode recognition too.
  • 400dpi scans converted to PDF with IRIS were displayed contorted within the DM viewer.

Release Notes Version 8.0.744 (April 9th, 2018)

Enhancements

Output - Email
TLS 1.2 has been set as the preferred cryptographic protocol for the SMTP connection. 

Furthermore the return messages for failed tests of the email settings after clicking the Test-button have been enhanced to convey more information about the cause of the failure.

Output

Output processing has been changed in the way that if a job with document separation returns more than 100 documents, the upload(s) to the output target(s) will work with batches of 100 documents instead of all documents in one batch.

Error Corrections

The following errors have been solved in the current version:

  • The Drivve | Image default service used up to 2 GB of memory, as some object classes did not properly release allocated memory.
  • The Drivve | Image service might have stopped processing documents and needed to be restarted before further document processing was possible again.
    Note: If you have been affected by this issue, please make sure no broken Drivve | Image service process is still loaded before updating. Follow these steps before updating:
    - Execute the file  Stop Drivve Image Services.bat with administrative privileges from the Drivve Image installation folder
    - Make sure there are no jobs processed at the moment
    - Stop all processes called "DrivveImageService.exe" via task manager.
  • If "automatically merge pages based on barcode" was selected as option for separation by barcodes, the barcode was repeated in the separated document's metadata for each finding in the original file.
  • Xerox: Older WorkCentre Models with first browser version had issues when scan settings were changed by a profile user.
  • Output - Email: Html email link was always html encoded.
  • Bates numbering: On monochrome images the bates stamp was black, regardless if another color was chosen in the setup.
  • Bates numbering: The Bates variables didn't return the expected values when used as part of the file name.
  • Output / E-mail / Email / Email Distribution: Values in the "Name" field were not used in the sent mail.
  • The behaviour of the Single-Line Mode and Multi-Line Mode checkboxes for regular expressions in the OCR-Separation Text processing section was not working as expected.

Release Notes Version 8.0.680 (March 9th, 2018)

Enhancements

Universal device licenses - Email monitoring
A possibility to limit actual document processing to attachments with defined file extensions has been implemented.

 

License check for Output to Drivve | DM
The test button for the DM data-source will return a warning if the DM server has no license.

The DM output will report an explicit error that the Drivve | DM server has an license issue, if that is the reason for Drivve | Image being unable to upload a document.

 

SPT

With SPT you can now add OCR-Textoutput to a file output using the Tesseract OCR engine. Previously this was only possible with the OCR module, using the I.R.I.S. engine.

 

Box

The Box API has been updgraded due to TLS 1.0 deprecation with Box. TLS 2.0 is now supported.

Error corrections

The following errors have been solved in the current version:

  • When interpreting zones for barcode recognition, the engine mixed up the values for heigth and width.
  • Barcodes couldn't be recognized on PDF documents if they were embedded as text with a barcode font instead of as an image.
  • Barcodes on PDFs always returned an empty value for the Barcode recognition, while testing of the settings as well as the barcode separation process returned the correct values.
  • Setting Output format "searchable PDF" or selecting the "Add OCR text" for Drivve DM output did not create the expected results.
  • Under certain circumstances the selected encoding for conversion to TIFF has been ignored.
  • When setting the file format to JPEG in the scanner preferences for Sharp devices, an outdated warning message was displayed.
  • Files containing dots (.) in the filename got wrong file extensions after conversion.
  • The discontinued fax connectors have been displayed still in the Drivve | Image configuration interface's output section.
  • On a clean server, the Drivve | Image setup skipped the installation folder choice dialogue.
  • In case more than one email was processed in the same email monitoring process, the email subject variable for all attachments has been filled with the first processed mail's subject.
  • Under certain circumstances conversion to PDF formats without I.R.I.S. produced results where all pages got the first page's content.
  • The blank page deletion did not work as expected concerning the margin setting.

Release Notes Version 8, initial release (build 8.0.640, February 5th, 2018)

New Features

Document separation using zonal OCR

It is now possible to separate documents based on contained text. This can be done by defining OCR zones, which are then used to detect separator pages. Extensive text functions, such as Regular Expressions or Text Replacement, are supported to parse or modify the text of an OCR zone.

 

Support of Lexmark Android Devices

Version 8 now supports the Lexmark Android based devices with the screen size of 1024 x 600 und 800 x 600.

 

BOX.com Connector

A full BOX.com integration is now available supporting features like folder browsing, dynamic folder and file name generation.

 

Drivve | Image Desktop Client

With Version 8, a Desktop Client is now available that allows integration into a Windows PC, allowing the user to transfer files directly to a Drivve | Image scan profile via a local TWAIN scanner or through the Send to Windows Explorer function.

 

Universal Devices replacing Hotfolder licenses

The hotfolder feature known in previous releases have been replaced in version 8 by Universal Devices. The feature allows MFPs to scan documents via Scan-to-SMB or Scan-To-Ftp directly to Drivve | Image. The SMB or Ftp server function is provided by the Drivve | Image services so that it is no longer needed to scan into a Windows folder from which the data was imported.

The Universal Device license has a page limit of 100,000 pages per month.

 

Server Processing Licenses

For all areas of application in which data is to be processed by third-party applications that pass data through a file folder, the Server Processing License has been integrated. The Server Processing Licenses work in the same way as the hotfolders in earlier versions. The page limit per license is 10,000 pages per month without any restriction with regard to the number of scanning devices or image creating services used to create the content.

 

Monitor email mailboxes using IMAP

Drivve | Image can now directly monitor email (IMAP) mailboxes and download and process incoming email. In doing so, both the e-mail message text, the sender and recipient data as well as the file attachments can be processed. The functionality is provided by the Universal Device License, which has the page limit of 100,000 pages per month.

 

Full PDF support

All functions within Drivve | Image now support the PDF format. A previous conversion to TIFF format is thereby eliminated.

 

Intelligent High Quality Compression for searchable PDF

For searchable PDF files created with the Professional OCR license, a new PDF compression is now available that compresses the files up to tenfold.

 

New engine for image processing

The program part in Drivve | Image, which is responsible for image processing and analysis, has been completely redeveloped, offering multiple performance and supporting the processing of PDF.

 

Prioritization of profiles

It is now possible to provide profiles with a higher priority, so that the processing of these profiles is preferred. This is especially useful if it is a scan profile where the user is waiting for data processing - e.g. Scan-to-Email - but at the same time scans with a large number of pages are processed.

 

LPR support for print-back profiles and Scan & Print

When using print-back profiles as well as the Scan & Print function, the LPR protocol (Line Printer Remote) is now supported. This allows existing third-party print management solutions  to integrate with the Drivve image printing function as Drivve | Image can now pass the print data to an LPD printer queue.

 

FTPS

Drivve | Image can now transfer data via FTPS to Ftp servers that support this protocol. With FTPS, the transmission is encrypted. 

 

New output function: route

In the output area, data can now be transferred to another Drivve | Image profile. This makes it possible to create concatenated work processes in which the data passes through several profiles.

Enhancements

Input type External Field

The new External Field can be used to pull data from an external data source in order to display the data on the panel of the MFP. Tis allows the integration of web services or other external data sources into the panel of the MFP.

 

Show shares of a server when selecting folders

With a folder selection field all shares of a server can now be displayed.

 

Authentication for UNC paths with manual input

In the folder selection function, the login credentials of the currently logged on user can be used, provided that he has logged on with username and password.

 

Intelligent threading for scan jobs

The management of scan job resources has been redesigned, resulting in better utilization of a server's existing CPU resources.

By means by the LDAP protocol, the user authentifies himself to Lotus Notes and has access to the Lotus Notes address books. In addition, the user can drop emails in his Drafts folder. Thus, he can edit his emails before sending them.

Drivve | Image allows you multiple output for one single output type.

Example: The output type "File output" is selected and the scanned documents are saved to three different folders.



SQL editor

Drivve | Image provides an SQL editor you can use to edit SQL querries. The SQL editor is displayed automatically if you add an input field of the type SQL Query and select a file containing an SQL query (using the button to the right-hand side of the field SQL File Path).



Default email address/default fax number

  1. Create an input field (type = Text).
  2. From the Usage drop-down list, select E-Mail Subject/Fax number.

  • the field File extensions in the dialog Add new profile
  • the field File extensions in the dialog Change hotfolder (menu item Edit > Change hotfolder)


Function "Append to existing file"

User impersonation: Configuration of the logon types

The logon type of the user impersonation ( Tools > Options, dialog Global setting, tab shared login) can be configured.

The following logon types can be configurated:

Logon type Explanation
LOGON32_LOGON_BATCH This logon type is intended for batch servers, where processes may be executing on behalf of a user without their direct intervention. This type is also for higher performance servers that process many plaintext authentication attempts at a time, such as mail or web servers.
LOGON32_LOGON_INTERACTIVE This logon type is intended for users who will be interactively using the computer, such as a user being logged on by a terminal server, remote shell, or similar process. This logon type has the additional expense of caching logon information for disconnected operations; therefore, it is inappropriate for some client/server applications, such as a mail server.
LOGON32_LOGON_NETWORK This logon type is intended for high performance servers to authenticate plaintext passwords. The LogonUser function does not cache credentials for this logon type.
LOGON32_LOGON_NETWORK_CLEARTEXT This logon type preserves the name and password in the authentication package, which allows the server to make connections to other network servers while impersonating the client. A server can accept plaintext credentials from a client, call LogonUser, verify that the user can access the system across the network, and still communicate with other servers.
LOGON32_LOGON_NEW_CREDENTIALS

This logon type allows the caller to clone its current token and specify new credentials for outbound connections. The new logon session has the same local identifier but uses different credentials for other network connections.

This logon type is supported only by the LOGON32_PROVIDER_WINNT50 logon provider.

LOGON32_LOGON_SERVICE Indicates a service-type logon. The account provided must have the service privilege enabled.
LOGON32_LOGON_UNLOCK

GINAs are no longer supported.

Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP: This logon type is for GINA DLLs that log on users who will be interactively using the computer. This logon type can generate a unique audit record that shows when the workstation was unlocked.



Support for Foxit® PDF-Reader

Drivve | Image now supports the Foxit® PDF-Reader (http://www.foxitsoftware.com/Secure_PDF_Reader) as PDF engine. If installed, it wil take predence.
