Email Capture

The Email Capture feature in Sohodox, downloads email messages from any POP3 mail server and adds them to Sohodox. Sohodox will automatically extract fields (To, From, Subject etc.) from each email and enter them as indexing information for that email in Sohodox. This makes all email messages immediately searchable.

Folder Monitor

The Folder Monitor watches one or more specified folders on your disk and adds any files added to those folders to Sohodox. You can use this feature to directly add files to Sohodox even when Sohodox is not running. All you need to do is, add the files to the monitored folder and Folder Monitor will automatically add these files to Sohodox. This is also handy when working with Network Scanners which put the scanned documents in a folder.


Sohodox now comes with built-in usage reports, letting you see documents added or modified by users on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. The reports can be exported as a PDF, HTML, MHT or XLS files.

Deskew tool

You can now auto-straighten a tilted scanned image by using the Deskew tool. For more info see Enhance Scanned Documents.

Delete button now deletes documents from a Folder, Document Type, Tag or from a Stack
Hitting the Delete button from anywhere in Sohodox will delete the selected document permanently.
OCR document containing text in a different language
You can now OCR a document that contains text in language other than English. For e.g. if you have a document that contains text in the Danish language then you can configure the OCR engine to recognize the Danish language text. This option will only works if you are using the Microsoft Office OCR engine and only recognizes languages supported by the MS Office OCR engine.
Separate option for OCR in the Options dialog
A separate option is now added to OCR documents on check-in. Earlier versions of Sohodox had just one option i.e. Automatically extract text on check-in option which would extract text as well as OCR documents. From this version onwards we have separated them, so if you want to only OCR image documents on adding, then check the Automatically OCR documents on check-in option and if you want to only extract text from text documents on adding then check the Automatically extract text on check-in option.
Customize Quick Search
You can now select the fields that you want to search in, using the Quick Search. For, e.g. in the earlier versions of Sohodox, the Quick Search would only search in the Document Title, File Name and the Document Text. Now, you can select any field (displayed in the List View) that you want to search in, by using the Customize Quick Search dialog.

The Customize Quick Search box can be accessed by clicking the Quick Search drop-down and selecting the Choose columns for Quick Search option.

Reactivate a deactivated user
You can now reactivate a deactivated Sohodox user. So if you have accidentally deactivated a user you can now activate it.
Document Type with an auto-generate field now shows up in the Scan window
Document Type that has an auto-generate field will now show up in the Scan window. You can now directly set the document type (that has an auto-generate field) of a scanned document.

In the previous version, Auto-generate fields were not displayed in the Document Type drop-down of the Scan window as they are required field. By default document types that have required fields are not shown in the Scan window, as it is not possible to add the required field value when scanning and adding multiple documents. As auto-generate field values are generated by the system, Sohodox can add the value for the auto-generate field when scanning and adding multiple documents.

Create sibling folder
You can create a sibling folder by right clicking a folder. If you use folders to manage your documents then you must have noticed that when you have a long list of folders then it becomes unmanageable to scroll every now and then to click the Create new button, to create a new folder. The same problem is also noticed when you have a long list of sub folders, you have scroll above to select the parent folder and then right click it to create a sub-folder.

Now, we have added the New Folder option on the Folder right click menu. Now, just select a folder right click it and select the New Folder option to create a sibling folder.

Export Folder Structure
You can now export Globodox folders along with all the sub folders and documents to a destination on your local disk (retaining the folder hierarchy).
