Snowbound Introduces Valuable Workflow and Collaboration Tools to Its HTML5 Document Viewer

Annotation Tagging, Commenting, and Indicators Added to VirtualViewer HTML5 4.3 for Java and .NET

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 5, 2016) - Snowbound Software, the market leader in document viewing technology, today announced the release of VirtualViewer HTML5 4.3 for both Java and .NET, the latest version of the firm's award-winning pure HTML5 document viewer. Version 4.3 introduces major workflow enhancements and collaboration tools, including annotation and redaction tagging, bookmarks, annotation indicators, and annotation commenting.

  • Annotation and Redaction Tagging
    New annotation and redaction tools allow multiple users to collaborate on a single annotation. Users are now able to assign a tag (e.g. "Social Security Number") to each individual annotation or redaction to indicate to other users why the annotation or redaction was placed on the page.

  • Bookmarks
    The new bookmarks feature streamlines navigation within documents by providing users with the ability to create text bookmarks on pages via the thumbnail panel and also jump to a desired page via a bookmarks list.

  • Annotation Indicators and Navigation
    Indicators ensure more efficient collaboration as users can now navigate through only the annotated pages of a document, skipping pages with no annotations or stamps.

  • Annotation Commenting
    This workflow collaboration enhancement allows users to communicate about a specific part of the document by allowing comments to be added to existing annotations. Date, time of the comment, and the commenter's name are also listed.
