ActiveDocs Opus uses a component-based approach for creating intelligent Templates.
All ActiveDocs Opus Design Components are created or maintained via Content Manager. Design Components are automatically Checked Out when editing is started, preventing multiple simultaneous changes, and Check In is a manual process that integrates with the ActiveDocs Opus Version Control Module.
Content Manager supports relationship driven reporting for all Design Components ensuring templates are appropriately and accurately updated across your organization.
Content Manager provides a simple, easy-to-use interface for the management of content on ActiveDocs Opus Composition Server sites and subsites.
From a security aspect, you have complete control over who can access Design Components for creation purposes and who can then modify them further. This means each document you create is personalized and ensures a consistent message, correct information and professional output.
ActiveDocs Opus provides the Design Component Approval feature to ensure that content-carrying Templates and Snippets can be approved before they are used to create documents.
