New version is great and really helping users and the compan

Before we used the old version (4) which had no real Outlook integration and was slow.
We used to experience a lot of resistence to SharePoint in regard to document management, but this products has made a huge difference in the acceptance of SharePoint.

Painfully slow

Get Knowledgelake Capture instead.

Product Reviews

Pros
I have found no pros to this program.
Cons
-Painfully slow. It doesn't matter what you do with the program or what computer you are using it on, it will consistently be slower than any other program on your computer(s). Knowledlake Capture is eons faster and more user-friendly.
-Distinct lack of options. With Capture, you gain the ability to export files in various ways, import files in various ways and from multiple programs, edit the image before you release the file into Sharepoint, etc. With Connect, you basically get a copy-paste functionality whereby you enter in the data needed to export the files to Sharepoint, you don't get to see them before they are released, and more often than not there will be some sort of error.

Good and bad

I just wish it worked consistently like the KL Edit form does. I don't understand how they can make it work in KL Edit, but not follow the same conventions for making it work using KL Connect.

Product Reviews

Pros
Love the integration with email and other office products. Love the sticky fields. Great front end for loading one or multiple documents.
Cons
I love this product and what it does, however, the new releases often broke other features and I find it does not have 100% support for sharepoint 2010. Beware if using managed metadata columns. KL Edit form works find but why cant Connect duplicate?
