The Question:

I read about the documents feature on the pricing page, and would like to know about where and how my company will use the document storage.

The Answer:

Documents, along with notes, appear in nearly every Apptivo application. This is important because it allows yourself, and your employees, to store documents & files in a shareable & organized manner.There are many excellent uses of the documents app, such as storing sales proposals, project plans, contracts, standard procedural documents, or even project deliverables, such as a reports, logos, design mock-ups, you name it!  You can upload most file types, and can store an unlimited number of documents on a single item (if you have available storage space).If you run out of space, you can always upgrade your membership plan, or purchase space from the paid service store.

Documents work exactly the same across all applications, and will always be present in a similar “tabbed” layout.  Clicking the notes tab will reveal a listing of all previous documents, who uploaded them, and when they were uploaded etc.

This file uploading is a simple process, where, using Apptivo’s cloud document management system, you an upload documents from the following sources:
