Search & Retrieve
BlueCielo Meridian provides various ways to find the data required, like full text search, quick find, key find and extended search for documents or folders within or across repositories. In addition, user-specific views (Navigation Views) can be created showing a filtered subset of the repository for specific groups or activities, like to-do lists. On repository level, a selection can be provided as a Scope, like “Projects Scope” holding only the active change projects, which can have restricted access and specific Navigation views.
Within BlueCielo Meridian, each document has a thumbnail for quick recognition. The files can also be viewed in more detail through the in-built viewer, which allows viewing of over 200 different file formats including 2D/3D CAD, Office, PDF and Raster formats without needing the native application. The viewer can be deployed by local installation or by use of a central server (server based viewing).
Within the viewer many features are available, like zoom, pan, magnify-glass, print, etc. For 2D CAD files more specific options are available, including the Xrefs and Hybrids, put Layers on/off, show Blocks and Measure design elements. BlueCielo Meridian also provides viewing of 3D CAD files which provides other specific options, such as making an Exploded View within the viewer.
