IBM File Viewer 1.0.7 available for download

Since March 11th, the new version of the File Viewer is available in the Solutions Catalog

IBM File Viewer provides a high-fidelity viewer for IBM Connections files and community files in the web user interface. It also allows IBM iNotes users to view attachments within the browser -- without installing document processing or viewing software, and without having to download the file to the user's workstation.

You can view files directly within the IBM Connections Files and Communities applications. Supported Open Document files include word processing documents (.odt), spreadsheets (.ods), and presentations (.odp). You can also view Adobe PDF and the Microsoft™ equivalents of these file types – Word (.doc and .docx), Excel (.xls and .xlsx), PowerPoint (.ppt and .pptx).
By viewing an uploaded file from within IBM Connections, you can see the file contents without having to download the file. You can also navigate within the file, zoom, go to specific pages, play a slide show, print and more.

The IBM File Viewer 1.0.7 supports IBM Connections 5.0, CR1 and CR2 with thumbnail view feature, and it also supports IBM Connections 4.5 CR4 and CR5.

For additional details about installing and using this viewer with IBM Connections, please see this knowledge center.

When using with IBM iNotes, no additional configuration is needed by the end user. An IBM iNotes Administrator first needs to enable and configure the File Viewer on their Domino Server. Once that step is complete, IBM iNotes users will see a "View" option on the Attachments toolbar or when they right mouse click on a file.  By clicking the "View" option, IBM iNotes users can view received attachments directly without downloading, saving or opening the file. For IBM iNotes, the IBM File Viewer supports the same types of files listed above, although this list could be restricted by iNotes administrator.

For additional information about installing and using this viewer with IBM iNotes, please see this wiki documentation.
