Why has my Workzone button disappeared?

The Workzone button is dependant on a network connection to the Workzone server via VPN or a secure wired network.

If you get disconnected from VPN or switch between different networks, you might experience that your button disappears or that normal functions fail.

Solution: Restart your PC on a wired network and check that you are correctly connected by restarting Workzone in your browser.

The Workzone button can also disappear for a while during updates of the Office package.  

Solution: Let the computer complete the updates. Restart the computer as required.

What is ‘Indblik’ / Access?

Indblik’ access rights ensure access to Workzone. These access rights define who can see and edit cases, documents and contacts. At AU, the ‘Indblik’ access rights section is used for: Read access.
Read access gives you the right to see and edit a case, a document or a contact.

Documents on a case will normally inherit the access rights for the case in question. This can be changed on the individual document by editing the access rights for the document.

You can work with three types of access in Workzone: organisational access, function/topic access and personal access. Each type of access has its own advantages and disadvantages.  Read more about the different types of access here.

To learn more about which type of access is relevant for your case, please contact your local superuser. You can find your local superuser here.

How do I add an extra access to a document?

Documents normally inherit the access rights from the case, but if you wish to give more users access to a specific document you have to edit the access rights on the specific document.

This is done in the specific document under Læseadgang/Read access by removing the check mark in “Restricted by case":

Under “Access Code”, you add the case’s access rights and any extra access rights.

Finish by clicking Apply.

Why can I not save or lock the filed version of my document?

When an Office document (Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents) is opened in Microsoft Office, editing the documents will automatically be restricted (read-only) for other Workzone users, and it is only the user who created the document who can edit it.  

With the update to Workzone 2021.1, it is possible to see who has locked the document.

The column 'Locked by' in the document overview shows who is working on the document.

The column 'Lock expires' in the document overview shows when the document becomes available.

In order to gain access and be able to save or lock a filed version of the document, you can contact the person who has locked the document and ask him/her to close it.

How do I delete documents and cases?

As a general rule, nothing in Workzone may be deleted until AFTER the end of a filing period.

However, the following exceptions apply:

Documents that have not been archived yet

Anybody can delete documents that have not yet been archived. Once a month, these deleted documents are cleaned up and permanently deleted.

It will not be checked whether these documents should have been deleted or not.

Cleaning up incorrectly locked documents/cases

Superusers can always SOFTDELETE cases and documents that normal users should no longer see. However, a detailed description of the grounds for deletion is always required.

The grounds for deletion of documents and cases will be checked. 

Especially for HR when a candidate steps down. 

When a candidate steps down, the person in question must be anonymised. HR users can order this anonymisation by creating a request at support.au.dk
