Viewing Document Activity
The Document Activity History shows a record of documents that you have added to client records and received from clients. The list is broken down by month, with the most recent activity listed first. Each entry shows the document name and status, client name, staff member (if relevant) and activity date.
Clicking a row in the Document Activity History opens the Details page for the relevant document. In addition to displaying more data about the document (such as size and file type), this page provides access to the Client Card and features Delete and Download options. If the status is Internal, the Details page has an option to share the document with the client.
If the status is Incoming or Shared, the View Conversation button appears.
Clicking this button opens the Inbox, with a view of the messages related to the document.
