“At M-Files, we strive to create experiences that meet the needs of our users, making it easier to find and manage the information that matters most,” said Antti Kujala, design manager at M-Files. “We’ve dramatically improved our desktop user interface to deliver a simplified and more personalized platform, enabling knowledge workers to increase their productivity and achieve real business impact. Thousands of users depend on M-Files daily, and we pride ourselves on providing a highly functional, secure, and modern user experience.

M-Files customers will now benefit from a more intuitive platform experience that is easier to read and navigate. The modern user interface provides better visibility by simplifying the main navigation panel and allowing users to choose the views they want. The refresh also boosts usability by making it easier for users to find key controls and focus on content. Additionally, the pinned view has been updated with additional grouping functionality for a smarter way to organize vital documents. The search interface has also been improved with an easier way to locate the search bar and build button. Overall, the updates provide a cleaner design and a faster way for customers to adopt and navigate the M-Files platform.

“The updated pinned view has been great for our organization,” said Sarah von Innerebner, Records, Archives and IT Management Administrator, Doctors of BC. “Having everything accessible on one screen improves our user experience and the training of new users. M-Files has once again delivered on functionality and usability.”

“The new M-Files user interface is intuitive and easy to navigate, requiring no transition time for our team to get up to speed,” said Brian Parnell, Principal, NEPC, LLC. “This is exactly what we need from our document management system.”

The M-Files metadata-based document management platform increases productivity and improves work quality by making information easier to find and use. Its pervasive AI and automated rules-based discovery engine automatically crawl large volumes of legacy or new data, either in M-Files or external repositories, to identify content, including obscure data. Information is organized, secured, and processed using intuitive metadata tags that recognize document type and importance, resulting in increased satisfaction and productivity gains.

The modern and improved desktop user interface will improve user experience consistency through its close alignment with M-Files web and mobile applications. The modern user interface is now available for new M-Files customers. M-Files is providing tools to current customers to be ready for a transition in November. M-Files is also launching a new version of its iOS mobile app with an updated and streamlined design that will be available in the Apple App Store by the end of September.
