Document Management Link Features

Document Management Link (DML) builds on your existing document scanning and capture systems by making your documents easily available from within Sage 300

Link files to Sage 300 fields and screens

  • Any Sage 300 field displayed on a screen, including Grid fields, (except for check-boxes or drop-down selections)
  • Up to two fields, e.g. Vendor and Item, to filter selection
  • Sub-directories - e.g. to allow access to archived documents
  • Optionally specify which screens will trigger the display of linked documents
  • Optionally configure filters to restrict which files to display
  • Compatible with 3rd party modules developed in the SDK

Viewing Documents

When the user opens a Sage 300 screen that references the configured fields:

  • An ‘Alert Box’ will open to reveal any documents that have been linked to field values on that screen
  • The user can then open those documents, or add new ones
  • Documents saved in the configured folders are available for display in the DML Alert Box
  • Most file types supported

Adding Documents

  • Dragging & dropping documents directly into the DML Alert Box from within Sage 300 will deposit them into the designated folder
  • Optionally trigger an automatic file rename, based on rules you nominate, when adding files by drag & drop from Sage 300
  • Emails and/or email attachments can also be dragged and dropped directly from your Outlook desktop client into the DML Alert Box
  • Documents can also be saved directly into the nominated storage location from outside Sage 300, (e.g. 3rd party program, Extender script)

Document Storage & Sharing Options

You nominate where linked documents reside. either in a shared network folder, or Microsoft SharePoint

  • Single site can combine network folder and SharePoint
  • Nominate the folders where different types of documents are to be stored

Using DML with network folders

  • Email files stored in the network folder directly from the DML Alert Box from Outlook
  • Map that folder to a cloud-based file sharing service (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive, or Microsoft OneDrive)
  • Take advantage of the synchronisation and sharing capabilities those services offer

Using DML with SharePoint

  • Benefit from its collaboration and security features
  • Automatically trigger standard SharePoint workflows for notification, approval, multi-user approval or feedback when you add a document to DML
