New Multi-Pack HPE eLearning for Small Groups

Our HPE eLearning for TRIM / Record Manager / Content Manager continues to grow in popularity, but is it an affordable solution for your organisation?  It is now with the introduction of Multi-Packs, which enable discounted purchases for training small numbers of staff. For large organisations the decision has always been easy.  The $6,600 per annum subscription to the 60 topic program is a justifiable decision for organisations from 300 to 1,000 staff.  The price per participant ranges from $20 per person right down to $6.  That makes it a very cost effective method compared to face to face training, with the added bonuses of no travel costs, and immediate delivery. We have many organisations under 300 staff subscribed to eLearning, but for some organisations it is difficult to make the purchase when it competes with other current priorities. “Multi-Packs” are now available for purchase […]

Using Client / Matter Record Types

There are a number of new Record Type behaviours in RM, including the Client behaviour and the Matter behaviour. Using these Record Types enables effective capture of legal records. A Client record is established, which holds the Matter records (of that Client), which utilise the Automated Sub Folder feature. Sub Folders can be regular folder records with classification applied. For example: Tip – Think bigger! Can you use this just for legal records or any Client based transactional area….

Set a Default Record Type in Outlook

If your organisation has a variety of Record Types for electronic documents your users will find it useful to set a default Record Type for their email records.  By doing so they’ll reduce the risk of accidently using the incorrect Record Type. In Outlook go to the HP TRIM / RM ribbon. Select the Settings option.  Once the Settings window appears click on the KwikSelect and choose the preferred default.  Click OK and you’re ready to save emails faster.

Maintaining Unknown (Ghost) Locations

A System Administrator will need to include regular maintenance on Unknown Locations as part of a system quality assurance routine. There are two options for maintaining Unknown Locations: Replace – Find the existing Location (i.e. internal staff member) that matches an Unknown Location. Right click -> Delete and enter the replacement Location to update all existing records. When you attempt to delete the Location, RM will prompt you to specify a replacement Location. Convert – If the Unknown Location does not match any existing Location double click on it and update the Location type. Try to perform maintenance on Unknown Locations outside of ‘heavy traffic’ hours, as it can cause the performance on the entire system to slow down.

Preventing Unknown (Ghost) Locations

Ghost Locations most often occur when an e-mail is saved into HP TRIM/RM. When an email is catalogued TRIM/RM attempts to find a Location that has a matching email address for the sender of the email, and if a match is not found then a Ghost Location is created. It is up to a System Administrator to manage and clean up these Ghost Locations. Here are 3 tips for minimising the creation of Ghost Locations. 1. Disable auto contact creation when cataloguing emails System Options -> Record Tab -> uncheck Convert all recipients to contacts for the Record. You may lose some desired recordkeeping functionality if you decide to disable this option. 2. Only automatically add email contacts if the Locations exist System Options -> Record Tab -> check both Convert all recipients to contacts for the Record & Only add recipients as contacts if […]

Writing the Business Case for eLearning – HP TRIM 7 or HP RM8

The majority of records managers work in a public office and thus a formal business case must be approved before public money can be allocated. At Linked Training we are frequently asked to provide information to records teams putting together a business case for HP  TRIM (and now also Records Manager 8 – RM8) eLearning.
