Microsoft Outlook integration

Microsoft Outlook email file management

Integration with Microsoft Outlook allows you to manage email records, including attachments, in the document management system.

Customizable rules allow users to configure actions based on the content of messages. Similar to the email-handling rules within Outlook, the integration supports the automated capture and storage of incoming and/or outgoing email messages (and attachments) into document management folders. For example, a predefined term in the “Subject” field could be used as a trigger, which could then be used to store the email in the appropriate folder.

Standard business processes for capturing email records can be defined and propagated by administrators, while project managers and individual users can create their own rules for increased productivity.
