As it was in 2020, ConnectLive 2021 will be a virtual event allowing people to access on-demand sessions, live keynotes, user training, along with networking and learning opportunities with iManage executives, partners, and other customers, within 3 regional time zones (America, EMEA, APAC). The agenda for the APAC sessions from July 13-15th is still being prepared but will contain sessions such as:
- iManage Keynote: Making Knowledge Work
- iManage Knowledge Work Platform
- Increasing Productivity and Agility
Work Desktop for Windows - web browser control changes
Work Desktop for Windows will no longer support the use of the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser control. With the iManage Work Desktop for Windows June 2021 release (v10.5), the web browser control used for authentication and user interface display in Work Desktop for Windows will change to the Microsoft Edge WebView2 control. The user interface display includes:
- File picker (Open, Save, and Select) dialog boxes
- Task panes (Timeline, Properties, Versions, and Filing Details)
- Co-authoring dialog boxes
However, the Work Panel in Work Desktop for Windows will continue using Chromium, and not the WebView2 control, until a future release.
The Microsoft Edge WebView2 control is Microsoft’s latest web browser control that uses an up-to-date version of the Chromium browser control. Microsoft Edge WebView2 runtime is not part of the iManage Work Desktop for Windows installation package and must be installed prior to installing iManage Work Desktop for Windows 10.5.0. Work Desktop for Windows will no longer support the use of the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser control for authentication or user interface display via the registry configurations EnableChromiumBrowser and ChromiumBrowserInOffice (which allowed the use of Internet Explorer instead of Chromium). This change is in anticipation of Microsoft’s discontinuation of support for Internet Explorer on August 17, 2021. Any customer who has enabled the Internet Explorer browser control should review the following article before upgrading to Work Desktop for Windows 10.5.
iManage Cloud - Making Sure OAuth2 is Enabled for the iManage Desktop Client
OAuth2 is the modern authentication flow used with the Universal API which is used to authenticate to iManage Cloud. Some cloud customers may have disabled OAuth2 authentication for the iManage Desktop client in the past as a workaround for a number of issues, by setting the following registry setting on the client machine:
DWORD Value Name: AllowOAuth2
DWORD Value: 0
This should no longer be required with Work Desktop for Windows version 10.3 or above, and the workaround should be reverted (OAuth2 authentication should be enabled) to avoid authentication issues and to allow TokenCaching to be enabled for Work Desktop for Windows. For more information contact support.

iManage email toolbar display issue in Outlook
We have received a number of recent reports from customers experiencing issues with the iManage email toolbar in Outlook. The issue manifests as the toolbar displaying incorrectly and it may also cause issues with the launch of Outlook.
The issue may be seen following an upgrade of MS Office, which results in Outlook defaulting to use the system theme. Currently, the workaround for this issue is to set the Outlook theme back to one of the alternate themes such as "Colorful" under File > Office Account - Office Theme drop-down list in Outlook and restart Outlook.
