Blue Car Connector
A number of OIA's customers are currently running the Blue Car DocuSign Connector for iManage Work to streamline their digital signing requirements within the iManage DMS.
We've recently been notified by both Blue Car Technologies and DocuSign that DocuSign will retire support for email and password authentication methods, which is what the current version of Blue Car deployed in your environment leverages.
BlueCar Technologies has now released a new version. You will need to upgrade your existing Blue Car DocuSign Connector before September 2022. Please Contact OIA to assist.
Self-Service Single Sign On Authentication
The self-service Single Sign On (SSO) model (also known as Service Provider-initiated SAML) is the go forward position for iManage Cloud customers (both in Classic and Azure) so all customers should look at moving to this before the end of the year. Assessing ahead of time is important as updated FileSite/DeskSite versions may be a requirement, along with ensuring Oauth2 is enabled (i.e. needs planning and change management). Many customers in Classic Cloud have already moved to self-service SSO.

iManage Tips & Tricks
User selection for attach file or link now persists
With the version 10.6.0 release of Work Desktop, when a user inserts an attachment when composing an email, the file picker dialog remembers the user's selection that is, whether to insert a link, a file, or both. This is important for those users who always want to send a link and a file so they don't have to select this every single time they attach an email. More efficient operation.
Persistent sort criteria for web searches
With the Work Web 10.4.2 release, you can now sort your search results by a specific criteria and this criteria is remembered across browsers unless changed by you again. This helps you to always view the relevant search results on the top, thereby saving your time by not requiring you to sort the search results for a specific criteria every time you perform a search. When you switch over from Simple to Advanced Search, the sort criteria is persisted to save your time.
