About Document Templates

Document Templates allow you to define how a document is to be created. Templates must be associated with cabinets, so that a certain type of document can only go into a certain cabinet or drawer. This minimizes any issues with documents being misfiled into improper cabinets. For scanned documents, templates provide important settings as to the size and quality of the scan, and the device to use. A number of document templates have been provided for your use, and you can create your own as necessary.
