You don’t have to actually open DocuWare to store documents in DocuWare. Just use the "Save As" command in Word, Excel, or any other application and save the document to an import folder.

Tip: You can also watch multiple folders – for example, for documents that are stored in different file cabinets. More information: Where are my documents? Import status at a glance
