May Software Update for Archive Owners

It’s been a busy spring at Kindex! Here’s what we’ve been up to.


New Help Guides Now Available

New Kindex Archive Plans

This spring we officially released new archive plans for Kindex. Learn more about our new Cloud and Closet plans.

NoteIf you signed up for a “Unlimited + Collaborative” Kindex archive before February 28, 2018, there is no need to update your archive plan until your subscription renews. On or near your renewal date, owners with private archives will be updated to the Closet Archive plan, and owners with public archives will be updated to the Cloud Archive plan. 

Kindex Rewards

We released a new Rewards program to as a great incentive you keep indexing and reaching your goal of a searchable archive. Have you earned your reward this month? For every 20 records indexed in your Kindex archive, you’ll get a $5 credit toward your next month’s subscription. Rewards apply to Cloud and Closet archive owners only. Learn more about Kindex Rewards.

Software Notes

Please note the following information regarding Kindex software:

Saving Transcription Status. In order to ensure your transcription status is saved, please save your work after changing indexing from “in progress” to “Complete”. It may be necessary, make a small edit (or add a space) in your transcription to activate the Save button. We will be updating this feature to ensure that the change in transcription status is auto-saved. 

Tagging Features. We will be making some enhancements to our tagging features, including person list editing and tagging. In order to implement these updates, we will be temporarily removing access to our tagging tool beginning on June 1, 2018, and restored as soon as the features are up and running.

Record Uploads. A small number of users have experienced errors when uploading large batches of records. This can occur when a user navigates away from their Kindex screen during the upload process. Users can avoid this issue by staying on the same screen during record uploads. We will advise when this bug is fixed.
