Adding a File: File Queue

This feature allows users with the proper permissions to select a text-based document/file to upload and then go through the file and select text (within the file) to be highlighted and copied over to a field on the applicable add screen. If not processing the file immediately or assigning the process to another user, the File Queue is invaluable. 


Add a File to the Queue

Or on any screen that has the grey drag and drop box in the side menu you can drag and drop a file.


After dropping the file it will prompt for what kind of record you wish to create or to add to the File Queue. Click Keep in File Queue to hold onto the document without immediately processing it.
