Remove Liquidation

Adds attachment to a document.
You have several options:

  • From file… – opens dialog where you can select the file to attach from your filesystem.
  • Scanogram – opens scanner’s dialog to attach from scanner. User must have scanner device attached to use this feature.
  • From EBA Printer – System asks you to print the document from EBA Printer. Read EBA Printer manual for more instructions.

All options are repeated with sign option – this means EBA DMS will sign attached files with scanner rooms certificate to verify their existence.

  • Internal attachment – creates and attaches text file with your input.
  • URL – attaches .URL link to a destination

Starts rejection process of a document. A new window pops-up where you can choose to reject the document with letter from EBA printer or saved template. After inserting the document a new document will be created in EBA DMS which is a rejection letter. The system also links both documents together.

Action changes document’s status to liquidated. This means that the document is processed and no further actions are allowed on it. To remove liquidation choose action “Remove Liquidation” in the upper part of the same menu.

Action gives you option to reply to a received document with a letter. Selecting this action you have to create a new letter from template or EBA Printer. After inserting the document a new document will be created in EBA DMS which is a reply to original document. The system also links both documents together.

Actions sends opened document into archive and changes its status to “archived”. Action also closes opened document.

Action destroys the document – use when you need to “delete” the document. A watermark “Destroyed” is applied on document and now the document is legally irrelevant. We recommend that you archive the document after destroying it otherwise it will stay in user’s office.

Classify (ctrl + k)
Opens up Classification dialog (if Classification is set) where you can classify the document.

Document change
Action allows you to change some data and contextual values on document. For example, after selecting this action you can change subject of a document, sender or receiver or make correction on data fields.

After saving the changes document is again signed with users certificate.

Use action to forward the document to another EBA DMS user. If the document was previously forwarded to you, you can press on arrow and select Return action which returns the document to the user who forwarded the document to you.

Edit supporting document template
Actions edits the supporting document template or presets values in the supporting document’s fields.

If you have a supporting document defined for a specific document type, you can create a template for it, which means you can preset the data on the supporting document.
If you perform this action on an open document, EBA remembers the document type and the recipient / sender / owner and will use a template for the supporting document each time the document is created.

It is useful in cases where for a certain type of document for a certain recipient / sender / owner the same values are always filled in the supporting document. This way, you do not have to fill in the supporting document each time the document is created, but the values are already preset.

The template can be edited in a scanner or on an open document. You must be an administrator on the document type to edit a template on a document.

Add tag
Actions add tag to the document.

Remove tag
Action removes tag to the document

Grant Access
Action grants access to document for another user.
