Handy Result Lists: Pin your top features

DocuWare offers a number of features to boost your work with archived documents. With a simple trick in the configuration, you can display the most important features for you and your team as a button in result lists and other lists. Here’s how…

Whether to download documents  or share them by email or for displaying linked dokuments, sending requests, retrieving links and much more: Within DocuWare result lists and other lists, there are many ways to speed up working with your stored documents.

In general, users just need to select one or more documents and then right-click to get to the context menu – this will show them all the features they are allowed to use based on their authorizations:

But there’s another way to access frequently used features: by displaying them as buttons directly at the top of a result list or other list:

Since preferences and requirements often vary depending on the team and application, suitable features can be individually pinned for each list – either when setting up a file cabinet or at any time afterwards. It just takes a few minutes.
