Assigning Profile/Indexes to Documents

Each document is associated with a Profile. Profiles represent a set of indexes that provide information about the document.


When importing a document to Docsvault, you must specify a profile. Once you have selected the appropriate profile, you may need to enter additional information about the document.


The document profile is stored with the document indexes. To change the profile associated with a document, you can either change it when you check the document in or edit the document properties.


Assigning Profile

Profiles and indexes can be set to documents, as well as to folders.


You can assign profile and multiple index values to a document at following instances:
