FileNet Upgrade - what to expect

May 28, 2020


  • Yale has been working on an upgraded version of FileNet.
  • Testing has been completed and the upgrade is scheduled to launch on June 1, 2020.


Yale has been working on an upgrade to FileNet, the Enterprise Content Management System. FileNet is a long-term archival document management system currently housing several million University documents across a dozen repository areas. 
The FileNet project ensures we maintain system security, supportability and stability. The upgrade will modernize FileNet’s repository with minimal change to the user experience. It will also allow FileNet to be fully functional from any web browser.
The Quick Guide is a helpful resource for anyone needing to familiarize themselves with the upgrade. The new version has retained the same functionality with minimal changes to the user experience so no training will be required.
