What you need to know about the new NetDocuments ndMail Browse Feature

February 5, 2023

In my NetDocuments, I require an author field to be filled out when someone saves ANYTHING.

When someone clicks and saves an email to NetDocuments via ndMail, it bypasses the regular save, and only fills out the Client, Matter, and Doc Type.

This causes you to start getting a lot of emails saved to into NetDocuments without required attributes filled out.

Step 1: Make sure all users have ndMail 1.12 Installed

How to determine what version of ndMail you have:

  • On and Force – Forces them to use it.
