WebDocuments in IceWarp Server 12

IceWarp Server 12 has a completely new online documents editing tool against the previous versions. (Please, be aware that previous version of WebDocuments will not work with IceWarp v12, and in that case you need to install new WebDocument server!) WebClient now includes the most compatible and feature-rich office suite yet, that lets users create, preview and edit all Microsoft Office and OpenOffice file formats. Its advanced online editors have a familiar interface so users can easily find the tools they need. It is much easier to create documents by a single click in the +New menu. IceWarp made a next step to bring users complete document solution for information management, that they work with every day.

The online documents edit feature in version 12 is available to users in WebClient. As long as WebDocuments server is installed and configured by the administrator properly, this feature is automatically available to all users.

WebDocuments Setup Guide will provide administrators how to setup IceWarp WebDocuments on the server and work with all documents online. This guide is possible to read online here: WebDocuments Setup Guide

All existing documents are automatically available from the version 11.4 to view and edit, but in version 12 in the completely different interface. Spreadsheets, presentations, documents and all ODF files you can view and edit directly in the browser with high fidelity, without having to install the Office suite on your computer. To edit documents, IceWarp provides a seamless connection between its web-based storage and productivity applications installed on user´s computer.

First left-click offer working with document shown on the right side of the screen (it depends on selected preview menu – Bottom Pane, Right Pane or None). A user can see the document (spreadsheet, presentation etc.) preview through following options:

  1. Actions – numerous actions can be chosen by user preferences (Print as PDF, Share Link or Send as Email. For large attachments you can use SmartAttach when attachments will be saved to your Document folder and replaced by download links in the email body. Within the beta version collaboration can be limited by editing not at the same time. The document will be locked for other collaborators while anyone else is editing the document. This feature is still being developed and will be released in the final version.)
  2. Details – explore details about selected document (For now users can use the Tags or Note options to discuss online the changes of the unfinished document within this section. We are going to bring more collaboration functions in the future).
  3. Revisions – check the list of revisions from other collaborators. You can also add new revision (Users will be not able to go through the revisions online; they have to download them on the server. Still they have a perfect overview about different versions of the document uploaded by collaborators – details about when and who made any changes is shown at each revision).

Hover over the document preview and a “Click to start editing” popup window will appear. By click on this window, an editable document will be opened in the second window and you can start editing. Editing is user-friendly in version 12 thanks to wide range of editing tools (tables, charts, word-art, styles and much more).


And of course, documents are accessible and editable wherever you are – from your tablet, phone, computer, so you can increase your productivity, save time and work remotely from multiple locations.

Finally you will get a complete storage solution for your team, including editing and creating documents, versioning, fast sharing. Everything is fully integrated into the rest of application for work with e-mail, TeamChat or your own Instant Messaging solution.

In version 12, users can easily work with documents, spreadsheets and presentations offline from their desktop using our new application IceWarp Desktop Suite which combines IceWarp Desktop Client, IceWarp Desktop Documents, IceWarp Desktop Spreadsheets and IceWarp Desktop Presentations. This application is also possible to download for Windows 7 and later from our web: IceWarp Desktop Suite Download
