The system provides the ability to upload and store files with any of your accounts. These files can be of any file type – text files, word processing files, spreadsheet files, graphic files, etc. Files can be uploaded, downloaded, and/or replaced as desired.
To store a file on the system, select the Account where you want the file attached. If the file, or files, you want to store are more for your own company’s general purposes, then you can use the Global Library function which allows you to have a centralized document library for your company.
After selecting the account, the system displays the Account Detail View. The Account Detail View has four (4) views that are also available: Activities, Notes, Opportunities, and Contacts. These views display only the information related to the selected account.
If the detail view is not already displaying the notes for the account, click the Notes Button. Once the Notes view has been selected, select the link for attaching files:
After clicking on the Attach(ed) File(s) link, you will be presented with a listing of files currently being stored with the selected account. An example is shown below:
This link allows you to create, modify, or delete folders to help organize your files.
