  • Document Organization and Storage: With Eccentex AppBase, you can establish a well-structured and organized repository for your documents. You can create folders and subfolders to categorize documents based on criteria such as case type, date, or document type. This organization ensures easy retrieval and efficient management of your documents.

This automation reduces manual effort, enhances efficiency, and improves overall case management.

  1. To Scan a document, click on the Scan green button.
  2. The scan application will be opened. If you open it for the first time, the system will ask you to download and install it via the Click Once interface.

These settings typically include parameters such as scan resolution, color mode, file format, and destination folder. Adjust the settings according to your requirements.

  4. The scheduled deletion process ensures the system remains efficient and available to users during business hours while keeping the CMS free from clutter. To learn more about it, check the Document Operations article.

Adding notes to documents in Eccentex AppBase allows users to provide additional context, comments, or annotations related to the document. Notes serve as a way to enhance collaboration, provide instructions, or highlight important information.

  1. Click on the Notes tab.
  2. Enter the desired content for your note.
    You can type in text, provide instructions, add comments, or include any relevant information you want to share with the document.

The document notes will belong to the document only and will not be visible on the case.

Other Actions

There are other actions available for a specific document under the Gear button. Some actions will be turned off (grayed) as the action will depend on the document's format. In the image below, the action Edit (WebDAV) is disabled because the selected document is a PDF file.

  • View - will open the document in the Viewer window. The document viewer within Eccentex AppBase will display the contents of the selected document. The viewer may provide features such as zooming, scrolling, page navigation, and options for viewing different document formats (e.g., PDF, Word, Excel, and images). Navigate through Pages (if applicable): If the document has multiple pages, you can navigate through them using the provided controls within the viewer. This allows you to view different sections or pages of the document. Depending on the document viewer and the configured options in Eccentex AppBase, additional actions may be available while viewing the document. These actions could include downloading, printing, sharing, commenting, or annotating the document. Once you have finished viewing the document, you can close the document viewer within Eccentex AppBase. This will return you to the document list or the document management section of the case.
  • Download - Download the document. After clicking the download option, a dialog box will appear, asking you to choose the destination folder on your local device where you want to save the downloaded document. Select the desired folder and click "Save" or a similar confirmation button. The document will start downloading from Eccentex AppBase to your chosen destination folder. The download progress may be displayed depending on your web browser settings. Once the download is complete, navigate to the destination folder on your local device where you saved the document. You can now access and open the downloaded document using the appropriate software or application that supports the document's file format.
  • Edit (WebDAV): AppBase supports the Edit action using WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning). WebDAV is an extension of the HTTP protocol that allows users to edit and collaborate on documents stored on a remote server. Edit the file using the standard desktop application; when saving it, it will be uploaded to AppBase. A WebDAV client provides a seamless editing experience. It allows users to work with familiar editing tools while maintaining the document's integrity and version control within the application.
  • Quick Modify: update the document info as Description and Document Type.
  • View versions: View the versions of a document to track changes, compare revisions, and access previous iterations. The version history provides a timeline of modifications made to a document over time. Upon accessing the version history, you will be presented with a list or a timeline of the document's versions. Each version is typically accompanied by details such as the date of modification, the user who made the change, and a summary of the changes made. Depending on the interface, you may be able to click on the version to open and review it within the application or have the option to download and open it locally using the appropriate software. By accessing the version history of a document in AppBase, you can track its modifications, view specific versions, and compare changes. This feature enables you to monitor the document's evolution, revert to previous versions if needed, and maintain an audit trail of modifications made by different users.
  • Reload - Reload document information
  • Permanently delete - Mark the document as permanently deleted. After confirming the deletion, Eccentex AppBase will remove the document from the system permanently. It will no longer be accessible within the application, and the document's data will be permanently removed from the document repository. It's important to exercise caution when performing permanent document deletions, as this action cannot be undone. Ensure that you have selected the correct document for deletion and verify that you no longer need the document or have a backup copy if necessary.

    The scheduled deletion process ensures the system remains efficient and available to users during business hours while keeping the CMS free from clutter. To learn more about it, check the Document Operations article.
