Finding documents

Top  Previous  Next

You can find any uploaded document in the system by using the “View Documents” form. Go to the “Clients>Documents” main menu item to display this form. You can put documents into folder so you can navigate the tree and quickly locate the document you are looking for when you click the folder. Numbers in brackets show the quantity of documents in each folder and its subfolders. If you prefer to exclude subfolder's documents and to see only the number of documents in the current folder pull-down the menu by right-clicking on the selected folder and uncheck "Count documents only in folders themselves". You can apply additional filters to the list of documents using "Filters" button.



From this menu you can also add a document to this folder, create a new PDF document, edit folder, hide private client's folders, hide empty folders, show all documents in all folders, expand/collapse all folders, export documents and reload the folders tree.
