New Daminion 3.4 supports multiple shared catalogs

New Daminion 3.4 version released

With the new Daminion 3.4 you can create multiple SHARED catalogs and open them as multiple local catalogs in your Daminion Client!

Previous versions of Daminion limited users to 1 shared catalog per installed Daminion Server. Although the Daminion Server allows you to import and manage millions of files, it sometimes makes sense to split your digital asset library into several smaller parts, especially in an organization with many departments, where each one has its own particular digital archive.

This was our users’ most frequently requested feature – with more than 50 registered users requesting it – and it’s available at last.

Check out the short video below and discover how to create and manage multiple shared catalogs in the new 3.4 version of Daminion Server

Daminion 3.4 has also benefited from dozens of minor improvements and bug fixes.
