Archives are like the drawers and folders which go inside a file cabinet. Archives act as the repository for all your business records once the indexing process has been completed. They are easily customized and can be named or configured specifically for the needs of your organization.  Archives may be configured to serve the specific needs of a department, a specific process, or even a specific user.  Each Archive has unique Index Fields which allow you to further categorize your documents so that they can be easily located.  Archives structure can be kept flat (all Archives on the same level) or nested within other Archives.

Unlike a Windows® folder, you can secure collections or specific documents in an Archive. This allows for a robust security model. While you can simply click a folder to view the files within it, you may also run searches for documents in the Archive that act as filters on the available document sets.. The GlobalSearch Searches tool allows for very granular control over viewing and editing documents. You can choose to view all documents or refine the results to just the documents you need at the moment.
