Users of these exchanges can now redact multiple documents at the same time, making the redaction process faster and easier; previously, they were required to redact documents one at a time. Bulk redaction moves the redaction process from user's computers to Intralinks servers, making redaction faster and easier for users. 

Users also can filter documents in the redaction area by their markup status. These filters allow users to easily identify files in a particular status such as scanning, ready for review, redacting, and so on.

June 18, 2022    InvestorVision
The OKTA service is now used to authenticate InvestorVision users when they log into the application. This new authentication and identity experience requires uses to set up at least one multiple factor authentication (MFA) option. In addition, updates have been made to the login process; password reset; and the management of profile, credentials, and factors. These changes are designed to improve the user experience, and they provide additional security and improve self-service capabilities.

Users who have both InvestorVision and Intralinks credentials will log into InvestorVision with their existing Intralinks credentials. Users who have InvestorVision credentials only will need to set a new password and enroll in a security option.

​​​​​​​June 9, 2022    Intralinks Mobile Authenticator support
Support for the Intralinks Mobile Authenticator was added to VDRPro, Deal Manager, DealVision, VIA Pro, Intralinks Designer, and the Intralinks mobile apps.

June 9, 2022    VDRPro
The following enhancements were made:

  • Improvements were made to the bulk download process on Windows. In Windows, the maximum length for a file path name is 256 characters. When a Windows user performs a bulk document download, VDRPro now checks to see whether any file paths exceed the Windows limit. If they do, the user has the option to shorten the file and folder names or download all of the files to a single folder. Previously, a message was displayed to all users, regardless of whether the file path limit was exceeded, saying that folders may be removed. This enhancement ensures that only users who have file paths that exceed the Windows limit see a message. It also gives users more flexibility in managing downloads that exceed the Windows character limit. 
  • In the file upload process, VDRPro now checks to see whether the Windows character limit is exceeded; if it is, users can either cancel the upload or skip the files that can't be uploaded. Users also can export a list of files that exceed the Windows limit.
  • Exchange members with a manager-level role can now view the location where their data is stored and processed. This information is available on the Exchange Details screen when you select Exchange Settings from the Profile menu.
  • Users can now resize the documents tab panel, allowing them to view more information without scrolling.
  • The Live Chat button has been moved to the footer.

If the user consents, browser and system information is passed to the support specialist, giving the specialist more insight into the user's situation and reducing the number of questions the specialist has to ask the user. Additional accessibility and design changes were made to align the appearance of the chat function with the rest of the VDRPro application.
