Routing Documents

Routing the documents:


A document can be routed to one or more users as a task with the senders note. The receiver will see this task in his Task In tab or when the document is selected in the document list. The sender and the receiver then can communicate on this task and can see the status of this task at any time. The sender thus has a control over the tasks he/she assigns to other users in Docsvault.


You can send an Docsvault document to another person by using the 'Document Tasks' features.


For example:

Neil wants his subordinate Richard to confirm the price of the items in Purchase order before approving it.



Select the document you wish to route.


On the File menu, select Document Tasks....


Right click on the file and from the pop up menu click on Document Tasks....
