    QuickFiling.pngSwitching Send and File on means that every time you click Send in an email the Add Document window is opened. Fields are automatically populated based on your default settings and the email addresses you have stored in Central. Providing all the mandatory fields are completed you can click OK to file the email to Document Management, or if you don't want to file it click Cancel.

    To activate Send and File you will need to set it up in CCH Email Filing Options. To do this click the button_Settings.png button at the top of the Filing Pane, then click Options and select the Filing Tab.

    Sent Emails

    The Sent Emails option will only be enabled for selection if Enable folder monitoring is ticked. File email on send - tick this to file emails as you send them. The Add Document window will be opened with profiling details populated by defaults where these have been set.

    Tick the Only where email address matches checkbox to only file emails on send if a recipient email address matches a contact in the CCH Central database.

    To automatically delete sent emails after they are filed tick the Delete email after filing checkbox.

    Received Emails

    Delete email after filing - this option will automatically delete emails after they have been filed using drag and drop to the Filing Pane, or via the Filed Details Pane.

    To switch off the preview click the Auto Hide icon in the header of the email preview; to switch the preview back on, click on the Preview tab to the right of the Add document window.
