Step-by-step guide:

When uploading documents, utilize the 'Upload Preference' feature to assign one or more Entities to a specific document.

Using the Inbound Email

Your clients have a personal inbound email address that allows any user to send documents directly to the Vault. By default, the "sponsors" users (who provide you with the Vault)  don't have access to this area. If you need to share with them you can add this permission in their contacts or move the document to the company folder

Step 1: Copy and paste the inbound email in the 'To' section.

  • If you have manager access, you can find the inbound email address in the 'Unfiled Documents' tab. If not, you can ask your client or send us an email to support.

Step 2: Attach a document to the email and click send

Info! The email needs to have a file attached to be able to be accepted for the Vault.
  • If you have access to this section, the first time a file is received from any email, you will need to recognize it as a trusted sender to be able to move it. Once you trust this sender, you will be able to file any document from this sender. To do this, just follow the next steps:
      • Step 1: Click on the email address. 
      • Step 2: A pop-up will ask you if you want to trust this sender. Click 'Yes (Trust)'.
  • To save one document just right-click on it and select the Action 'Move to My Documents'. Then, select the location and choose the Entity and click “Move”.  You can move multiple files to one location by selecting all the files you need, click on the Action button in the right-top area, and select 'Move to My Documents'.
