Desktop Apps: Easily installed

Desktop Apps form a bridge between your computer and DocuWare system, to quickly allow you to use features like Import, Print or Connect to Outlook. The Apps are installed with just a few clicks.

If Desktop Apps are installed on your computer, you can, for example, scan documents directly into a tray or send them by email from a tray or file cabinet. Documents can also be edited with the program in which they were created, right from within DocuWare – for example, to make changes to a spreadsheet in Excel.

What Desktop Apps can do for you

Desktop Apps provide access to the following DocuWare applications:

  • Connect to Outlook: save email in DocuWare via Outlook menu command.
  • Edit & Send: Edit or send documents directly from DocuWare.
  • Import: Import documents automatically from a monitored file folder.
  • Printer: Print and store documents from any application as a PDF.
  • Scan: Capture documents and store them directly in a tray or file cabinet.
  • Smart Connect: Display matching documents in DocuWare from other applications, like an ERP.
  • Windows Explorer Client: Integrate DocuWare in Windows file explorer.
  • Workflow Designer for Workflow Manager: Create workflows or edit preconfigured workflows.
