M-Files has unveiled a new desktop user interface, with an enhanced layout that provides a document management experience. The updated desktop user interface features better information layering, less distraction, and enhanced readability across the M-Files metadata-driven document management platform to improve the user experience.
The modern UI offers better visibility by simplifying the main navigation panel and enabling users to choose desired views. The refresh also strengthens usability by making it easier for users to find main controls and focus on content. Additionally, the pinned view has been updated with additional grouping functionality for a smarter way to organise vital documents. The search interface has also been enhanced with an easier way to locate the search bar and create a button.
Antti Kujala, Head of Design, M-Files said, “at M-Files, we strive to create experiences that meet our users’ needs, making it easier to find and manage the information that matters most. We have significantly improved our desktop user interface to offer a simplified and more personalised platform, enabling knowledge workers to boost productivity and deliver real business impact. Thousands of users depend on M-Files daily, and we are proud to provide a highly functional, secure, and modern user experience.”
The M-Files metadata-driven document management platform increases productivity and improves work quality by making information easy to find and use. Its pervasive AI and automated rules-based discovery engine automatically crawls large volumes of legacy or new data, either in M-Files or in external repositories, to identify content including dark data. Information is organised, secured, and processed using intuitive metadata tags that recognise the document type and importance, leading to increased satisfaction and productivity gains.
M-Files partners have expressed enthusiasm about introducing the modern UI to customers. Marco Scuri, Product Manager, Digital Solutions, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Italy added, "the new M-Files user interface looks very fresh and modern, and we are looking forward to sharing this update with our customers here in Italy.”
The modern UI is available now for new M-Files customers. M-Files is providing current customers with tools to be business ready for a November transition. M-Files is also releasing a new version of its iOS mobile application with a refreshed, streamlined design that will be available in the Apple app store by the end of September.
