Set the standard categories for attached documents

Document Index allows you to organize and save documents for a job in the Combining, Estimating, Project Management, Production Control, and Purchasing modules. The standard categories where you can organize documents need to be set separately for each module.

  1. Click the Maintenance ribbon tab.
  2. On the menu, go to Document Index, and select any of the following:
    • Standard Categories - CMB: set the categories for organizing documents related to combining jobs.
    • Standard Categories - EST: set the categories for organizing documents related to estimating jobs.
    • Standard Categories - ORD: set the categories for organizing documents related to customer orders.
    • Standard Categories - PRJ: set the categories for organizing documents related to project management jobs.
    • Standard Categories - PDC: set the categories for organizing documents related to production control jobs.
    • Standard Categories - REQ: set the categories for organizing documents related to requisitions.
    • Standard Categories - PO: set the categories for organizing documents related to purchase orders.

The Document Index - Edit Categories dialog box opens with the default categories.

Placeholders: The user can define the job organization by using placeholders that will separate the jobs.

Default Directory: Dynamically creates subfolders in the folder defined in File > Default Directories/Document Index.

In Company Standards under the Maintenance ribbon tab for each module mentioned above, you can select Automatically Create Document Index Directories. Items in areas that have been created before this is set need to be edited manually.
