Metalogix Archive Manager for Files 8.3 - ArchiveWeb Manual

Shared Mailboxes

This management setting is available only when Archive Manager for Exchange is installed and configured for ArchiveWeb.

When shared mailboxes are set for a currently logged user in Archive Manager for Exchange -> Tools -> Mailbox Rights Manager the grid will be populated and a user can select which mailbox(es) he/she likes to be listed in Archive’s mailboxes tree and in searchable mailboxes.




User can manage list of available shared mailboxes, select which ones like to use:

·In Archive’s mailboxes tree


·In Search’s mailboxes grid




In ArchiveWeb, user can sort emails and documents by adding various tags to them. Tags are logged-on user defined categories. They help the logged-on user quickly find and distinguish emails/documents of one category e.g. important emails, documents regarding one particular event etc.

All tags are listed, edited or deleted under Manage settings/Tags tab. At first we describe how to create tags. Then the process of adding tags to emails/documents is illustrated.


When you click on the Tags tab for the first time, no tags are created. The list view is empty. To create a tag click the New option in the list header. A new row will be added in the list view. You simply specify desired tag properties in the available text boxes:

·Tag Name – enter descriptive name, e.g. “Personal”, “Marketing” or any other

·Background Color – select the tag color or specify your Custom color

·Apply For – tag can be available globally or can be applied only for specific section of ArchiveWeb – Exchange archive, Files archive, Auditing etc. Should you check the e.g. Files archive option, the tag will be available only for File archive items

When all settings have been configured, click the Update option.


NOTE: Not all Tagged items tab functions may be available for the logged-on user. The functions must be allowed for the user. For more information see the Roles and Permissions sections.




The tag will be added to the list of tags. Naturally, all tag attributes can be edited by clicking the Edit option for the given tag. When finished, click Update.




The list view also informs you on the number of items tagged by the given tag.


Adding tags to items

After the tag was defined, it can be added to:

·emails (in any mailbox folder or in a public folder)


·auditing item


NOTE: Tag can be applied to all three type of items, if it is defined as a global tag (default). Otherwise it can be applied only to selected type of items (see above).

To apply the tag, locate the desired item under Archive/Exchange or Archive/Files or Report/Auditing tab and select it. Then open the More actions link (MENU) from the right upper corner in the preview pane. In the More actions menu click Add tag(s) command.



In the pop-up window select the tag(s) which you want to add to the item and click OK.



NOTE: You can also create a new tag if you click the Add new tag option and click Add. The Add New Tag dialog appears where a new tag can be defined.

Once the tag has been added to the items, it will be visible in the emails/documents list view (see the screenshot below) and also in the preview.

A tag can be removed in the preview or via the More actions link (MENU) by clicking the Remove tag command.






Management section constitutes centralized dashboard where user with appropriate permissions can manage specific configuration settings in the following sections:

·File Management

Adding, editing and removing of Archive Manager for Files servers which together establish the file archive system. Additionally, with Scheduler capabilities, Archive Manager for Files jobs are easily managed in the same way as on the Scheduler tab of the Enterprise Manager (Archive Manager for Files).

·Search Management

Registering and managing search servers in the environment.

File Management

File management section under Manage Settings / Management is displayed only if Archive Manager for Files is installed and the appropriate permission is set for the user. This section allows managing Archive Manager for Files:

·Archive Servers - managing archive and retrieve servers

Archive Servers

After clicking the Archive Servers tab, the available Archive Manager for Files servers will be listed in the main pane.

You can change the display name, protocol or port for the given server by clicking the Edit option next to the given server.

By clicking the Delete option the respective server will be deactivated in the ArchiveWeb, i.e. it will not be accessible for the users via ArchiveWeb and it will not be possible to search it either.

To add a new Archive Manager for Files server click New option in the list header. It will add new row to the list where you can specify the File Archive Server properties. Each server (Archive Server) can be backed-up when you enter another server with installed Archive Manager for Files as a Retrieve Server. The Archive Server folders and files will be accessible via ArchiveWeb even when the server is decommissioned/inaccessible. (For more information on this feature see the “Alternate Access Servers” document.)

Finally click Update for the newly added server. The new server will be listed on the Files Archive tab.





After clicking the Scheduler tab, you can manage Archive Manager for Files jobs or preview job reports on you Archive Manager for Files server. This tab basically offers the same functionality as the Scheduler tab of the Enterprise Manager (Archive Manager for Files).



To manage jobs user has to select a server from Server name drop-down. If any job exists (ArchiveWeb currently supports only Delete jobs) for the specified server, the grid will be populated.

For each listed job, a More actions menu appears by clicking the More actions icon ".." on a respective row. This menu contains functions for Edit, Delete, Start and Stop the job.

New job can be created by clicking New job link in the grid header.
