Linking a document or folder to a contact

Last updated:


    From the Documents tab you can link files at both the contact/client and assignment level, allowing others within the practice to easily find information related to a client or assignment. You can link to many file types, including Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, PDFs, emails and HTML pages.  You can also link to a folder within your system, saving time in accessing documents that may not be suitable for direct linking.
