Vassar College uses ImageNow and WebNow to digitize documents. Most offices opt to link their documents to Banner. Almost any database can be linked to ImageNow. ImageNow is the "full client" (installed on each computer) that allows full functionality of all ImageNow processes such as scraping the Banner screen for the ID etc. to populate ImageNow index keys, or editing a capture profile or managing user accounts.
The embedded ImageNow Printer permits us to "print" any document, like an email or web page, directly into ImageNow. WebNow is the browser-based "thin client" (no installation required) that can be accessed via a web address and used via an Internet browser.
It works with FireFox, IE and Safari on both Mac and PC [as of Dec 2011]. Common functions, like querying for documents and routing them or exporting documents to a file or email is present. However "capturing" is really an import of existing files on your machine or network drive and "linking" is a matter of you manually entering the Banner ID and other keys.

In some cases, if you open the ImageNow client without setting options, the column headings in ImageNow Explorer do not match your applet.
The following steps will walk you through setting the column headings:
Searching under the ‘All Documents’ view is not intuitive as it had been under the old client. Why? The column headings all default to the generic labels of: Drawer, Folder, Tab, Field3, Field4, Field5
So, if you haven’t noticed how your index keys match up to folder, tab, field3 etc. then searching begins with a simple list of all documents in a drawer to get a glimpse of what will match up with your index keys.
For instance, I know from experience that folder matches up with PO Number within the Purchasing documents…but if I had not known that then this search query would make no sense: find documents where folder starts with P01234567
You can find items in the grid that match specified text. Items that match the specified text appear highlighted in the grid.
Note: In order to use the shortcut keys for Next and Previous buttons, the Find bar must be active.
