InfoValet

1.12
21 May 2007

File storage/management system.

Overview

InfoValet provides you with a toolset that enables you to store your digital information in a much more flexible way and to find and group your documents easier then ever with little extra effort, regardless whether the document is a physical file, an e-mail or contact information.

InfoValet overcomes the limitation of "one name per file" by allowing you to assign "metadata" to every document you import into the InfoValet database. This "metadata" consists of a subject line and a nearly unlimited number of key phrases, which will help you later in finding your documents. Once a document is in the database, simply select it and Option double-click to modify or extend the initial "metadata". Of course all this "metadata" would lead to nothing unless InfoValet came with a search engine that uses it to go and hunt for that specific document that otherwise would remain hidden somewhere in the darkest corner of your hard drive(s).

To overcome the "one location per file" limitation, InfoValet allows you to set up a virtual folder structure. Once imported in the InfoValet database, you can store any document in as many virtual folders as you like, without duplicating any information. The only thing stored in the virtual folder is a reference to the original document. Storing or moving documents around in the virtual folder structure is done by a simple drag and drop.

What's new in InfoValet

Version 1.12:
  • Document Capture Workflows
  • You can now create Workflows (see Documents menu) that define parameters like renaming options, metadata to assign to documents and a list of logical folders to put the imported documents into. Once you activate a workflow and start the Document Capture function, all importing will be handled in the background and InfoValet will process all the documents you drop in the InfoValet Drop Folder (a single document or an complete multilevel folder structure) according to the rules specified in the workflow.
  • Example: Transfer all the pictures from your last photo shoot from your camera to a folder on your desktop. Give that folder an appropriate name and create more sub folders according to the different topics or subject that are suitable for your pictures. Now create a workflow in InfoValet, specify the renaming options, the metadata (tags) you want to assign to the pictures and the list of Virtual Folders you want your pictures to be stored into. Make that workflow the active workflow and save it. Drag the whole folder with your pictures in the InfoValet Drop Folder and start the Document Capture function. Now sit and relax, InfoValet will do the rest.

I'm not sure I get the purpose of this... How is this better than using OS X's built-in Spotlight search feature and the Finder's Spotlight comments?

Unless I'm missing something, InfoValet can't be used unless one purchases a license. Soon after launch, the "enter license" "purchase license" window appears and can't be closed. I guess there's no trial period available. I was not able to quit InfoValet normally, I had to force quit it. My brief experience in attempting to try this app was a total bummer. If, as others have stated, most features are available using other apps, including some that are free, why would anyone want to buy, let alone use InfoValet? At $50, this app is absurdly overpriced.

There is no reason to force quit the application. Just hit the save button (upper right corner in the toolbar) after entering your name and address information and you can start using the application for 30 days.

There are several free applications that can more or less achieve the same goal. Yep, SpotMeta, QuickSilver, VooDooPad, Journler, FolderGlance, or even the Finder, by using aliases within context-specific folders (something I already do). I am sure InfoValet has taken this idea a step further, but I cannot see me paying 50 bucks for it.

Cumbersome and cluttered interface. Extremely limited re: file types. I can see no weay to delete / add file types. It seems to me that it should be obvious that searching with Spotlight is far better than this; and more importantly the "Smart Folder" feature introduced with "Tiger" (OS X 10.4) will do a better job than this will re: organizing your files by type or task or any other criteria you can imagine -- and of course it is totally free and bug free !

In terms of search capabilities there is little difference between what InfoValet offers and Spotlight, you are correct on that point. However, Spotlight lacks the virtual folder structure capabilities. Being able to put e-mails, contacts and regular files into a folders does have it's advantages. Thanks for your feedback
