New Search statistics and Report Plugin

Both new Plugins require the Report Management module to be installed. Before they ara availble to te users they need to be activated in the Plugin Management and require the access permission to be set in the desired user groups.

Gallery view, open objects and Geolocation view of IP addresses in Reports
If objects are part of a report a thumbnail gallery view will be automatically available. Objects can be opened in the table of gallery view of the report. If IP addresses are part of a report (usually public viewers) the geolocation of the IP address will be displayed on click.

Zoom in preview
If you open the "Preview" via the context menu or the toolbar, you can now zoom and move the image on the desktop using the mouse wheel.

Similar images
This function can be accessed via the “Show similar” action in the toolbar. Clicking on the button displays images whose colors are similar to the selected image.

Check for duplicates
The system warns during the upload if a file with the same content already exists in the system. However, the user can also deactivate this check when uploading. With the help of the new function “Check for duplicates” that can be found in the Desktop, assets with the same file content can also be found subsequently.

Individual design themes for the user interface offer the option of positioning the main menu bar on the side or at the top. The hover color for buttons can be set individually, with the exception of transparent design themes.
