You will be able to save SPDocKit settings as part of a Consultant Profile. This will allow you to restore them easily when you activate the product.
You will be able to check various farm statistics such as number of views and last time someone accessed certain object, or detect sites that haven’t been used in a certain period of time (discover dead sites) etc.
Set up your own custom criteria that will be used to remove specific sites matching that criteria (e.g. dead sites).
Compare principal’s permissions to a specific group and detect whether the pricipal has the same permissions as a group. Use these results to easily decide which members should be added into that specific group.
Detect unnecessarily broken permission inheritance. Restore the permission inheritance for SharePoint object that have the exact same permissions as the parent object.
We are working on a new option under the permissions explorer. You will be able to expore and document anonymous access settings on your SharePoint sites.
Get a complete log of permissions changes made on a site. Includes details about who made the changes and when. Actions like permission assignments, group memberships and permission inheritance changes will be tracked.
New reports about Microsoft Project Server. Document settings and permissions for your Project Server.
Some servers SharePoint doesn’t recognize as part of the farm, but they might be vital for your production environment. With this new capabilty you will be able to add these servers manually into farm topology (to gather data about these servers).
We have updated a lot of existing reports, and now they fully support SharePoint 2016 and community and TechNet recommendations. There are also completely new reports.
New report that allows you to see which role membership user has been granted to a certain database.
Restore permission levels, directly assigned permissions, SharePoint group memberships and missing SharePoint groups. This feature is available for both SharePoint on-premise and SharePoint Online.
View current, live data, in addition to historic snapshot data, in the reports on the Site Explorer. Save time and navigate quickly to your preferred site and explore real-time information that you are interested in—no need to wait for the load results (snapshot)!
You will be able to get an alert when a change in permissions has occurred. Track changes for a specific SharePoint object (Site, List, List Item/Document).
We added a new alert option for Best Practices. Get notifications whenever a change occurs (error or warning) or the Best Practice you need to keep an eye on fails.
We created the new upgraded and redesigned SPDocKit monitoring feature. It brings a refined collecting engine, developed to improve performance and user experience.
Farm Compare: We have added the ability to compare TEST, DEV and PROD farms with different number of servers to get a better overview of all differences.
Permissions Compare: Now you are able to compare any two groups (SharePoint or Active Directory) as well as to track changes in group memberships.
We added a new export option for Compare results and SharePoint farm Documentation! All data will be sorted out through sheets and Excel filtering options will allow you to explore information you need more efficiently.
SPDocKit reports will show you even more of the details you need, in one view. Customize Permissions and Content reports to best suit your needs by adding columns such as emails, user names, or any other information you require.
Under Farm Explorer/Servers in the farm, we are creating a new report that will list all of your installed server certificates in one place. A certificate store often contains numerous certificates, possibly issued from a number of different certification authorities. You will be able to include this in a SharePoint farm documentation file.
Advanced security feature that allows access levels to be defined specifically for SPDocKit. The users and groups can be assigned to different access levels based on elements of SPDocKit or their SharePoint permissions.
A new type of comparison that provides a detailed overview of all permission changes across an entire site collection. Now you can check:
- which principal has been added,
- what type of permission has been granted or removed,
- which sites had permission inheritances broken or restored,
- if a user’s state in the AD has changed.
SPDocKit now shows your servers sorted according to the assigned SharePoint Server 2016 MinRole (Front-End, Application, Distributed Cache, Search, Custom) in the Farm Topology, server lists, and in other reports. A MinRole compliancy report under Best Practices will show you which services on servers are not compliant with the server’s given MinRole.
We have updated the Site Explorer documentation and the Content Types Hierarchy report. As well as checking whether content was custom-made by a user or was a default, now it also shows which Content Type has been published from the Content Type hub.
