We have been waiting to release this feature since long and the wait is over now. Now you can assign limited access to the documentation project, for team accounts and readers. Access can be limited to Project Level, Version Level, and Category Level. You can create custom roles with limited permissions and assign a user to it so that you never lose control over what should be restricted.
"Security Groups" can help you assign permissions to a group of users at one place and is used for team accounts. "Reader Groups" are for private documentation readers where you can restrict a group of readers to a limited set of documents. Check out the "Team Management" and "Site Security" under Settings on Portal.
Custom Security is available to Enterprise or higher subscription tier. Or if you're a trial user, you have this feature available to you. Let us know how you find it!
Another dimension to secure your documentation. When you want users only from certain IP addresses to access your documentation then this is the feature you're looking for. You can add a range of IP addresses, or individual IP addresses to Allow or Deny the access. Find it under:
Settings -> Site Security --> IP Restriction
For protected documentation, you can now share the documentation link to your private readers and they will be able to sign up themselves. It is most useful when you have a large number of private readers and you do not want to add them manually. Optionally, you can also restrict the sign up for certain email-domains only, to prevent random access. Find it under:
Settings --> Site Security --> Readers section.
It's a navigational guide to help our users understand and explore all the Document360 features. Check this out under:
Settings --> Project General --> Explore the features of Document360
Find and Replace
Coming from our customers - the Documentation editor now supports "Find and Replace". It is most helpful when you want to replace multiple instances of a specific word throughout the documentation.
Enhanced Category Management
Now you can add categories, sub-categories, and articles at any place by hovering over your mouse to the desired category.
Sample CSS Snippets
Fluid Layout for Documentation
We now support "Fluid Layout" for Document360 websites. It can be activated from Site Design --> General under Knowledge Base Settings
Exclude from external search
There are times when you want some of the documents on the website not indexed by the search engines. We had this request from one of our customer and we're happy that we implemented it. Now, for individual articles, under "Article Settings" in editing area - you can choose to "Exclude from external search" - which will add a noindex/nofollow meta tag on the website for that particular article. This will prevent the document from getting indexed from external search engines.
301 redirect to custom domains
Another request from our customers. If you have a custom domain mapped to your documentation project on Document360, then all the request on your project sub-domain(e.g.: example.document360.io) will be redirected now to the mapped custom domain by default, with a permanent redirect status code (301).
