Is there any more information being released about 8.0?
The FileBound team will be hosting three webinars closer to the release that will provide a high-level view of what changes have been made to Administration, eForms and Workflow capabilities. Please contact your Account Manager or Customer Success Manager if you would like to register for these webinars. Open registration will also be available on the FileBound website.
Are there any promotions offered related to the new release?
Yes. FileBound is offering a promotion for existing on-premise customers to migrate to the cloud. If this is something your organization has been considering, this could be the perfect time to make the switch. If you have any questions about what advantages your organization could realize by moving to the cloud, contact your Partner Account Manager to start the conversation.
Will there be release notes detailing more features and capabilities of FileBound 8.0?
Yes. The release notes can be found in the Online Help. The Release Notes for upcoming versions are generally available 1-2 weeks before the on-premise release date, so release notes for FileBound 8.0 are already in the pipeline.
