Network Team Libraries

Network Team Libraries are libraries which are stored in a central network folder. This allows users to directly connect to the library without downloading local libraries. The downside is that libraries from network devices slow down the indexing and searching process. So it is not recommended to use team network libraries.

If you create a team network library via the advanced settings panel during library creation, you must make sure that the selected network path for the library file is available for all people with whom you want share this library later. Otherwise the colleagues will not be able to connect to this library.

A valid UNC network path looks like: \\server\share

Cloud Document Search – Full-Text Search

Cloud Document Search: Quickly find any document, anywhere in the cloud.

With billions of files, the cloud has become one of the world’s largest stores of private documents, and it’s still growing. As users add more and more files it becomes harder for them to stay organized. Users spend endless times browsing file stores to retrieve their files manually. In other words, the more content users store in the cloud, the more important it is for them to have a powerful cloud document search tool available.

Cloud document search – Users need unified search tools

With this motivation in mind, we set out to deploy an instant, full-text cloud document search. Noggle replaces browsing with a single search interface as the primary way to find and retrieve content in one single place.

Today, Noggle powers cloud search for all large solution providers like Dropbox, Google drive or SharePoint.

It is a secure, decentralized, peer-to-peer document-retrieval and knowledge-sharing tool that goes far beyond the single technologies of document sharing or search applications. It is a a free application around the core conceptual principles that go back to the roots of Vannevar Bushs. In his essay “As We May Think” (1945) he visioned:

“Wholly new forms of encyclopedias will appear, ready-made with a mesh of associative trails running through them, ready to be dropped into the memex and there amplified.”

Today, Noggle allows to build your own private knowledge encyclopedias and share them with your colleagues. Combining cloud document search with digital library management and full-text search tools provides new ways for peer-to-peer based knowledge retrieval.

With Noggle you can

  • organize information and documents better with personal digital library routines in the era of scattered document file shares.
  • capture information as mind works, using semantic clustering and associative document filtering and recommendations.
  • aim to retrieve information and access the people behind knowledge by bringing the latest technology standards to personal desktops
  • make it possible to share indexed libraries without disrupting access rights for the original document content.

Noggle unifies search results across desktops locations, network file shares, email, cloud storages (e.g. Dropbox), enabling you to preview and act upon information – no matter where it is stored. And even better, Noggle has embedded peer-to-peer library sharing algorithms to collaborate with your colleagues and to make knowledge retrieval as easy as to google the public internet.

Dropbox Integration – Find documents in the cloud

Indexing cloud drives and folders In general noggle can index and search all folders and files which are accessible via the Windows file explorer. So if you have linked a cloud account as a file share which is accessible via the windows explorer, it is also accessible for noggle. However, often the “linked” cloud folder […]
