Smarter and faster handling of document attachments

Enhancement to the way you work with document attachments in Next®.

You may primarily think of attachments as something related to emails. They typically are, but in Next® other documents may also have attachments. Standard terms and conditions attached to an invoice. A certificate attached to a delivery note. Or one or more appendices to a contract. 

With this recent enhancement to Next® it becomes considerably easier to work with the documents that have attachments, as you can now already from the document hit list determine if an particular documents has attachments or not.

Already from the list, you can see if a document has attachments or not.

If you know that the document you are looking for has one or more attachments, you'll save time not having to browse through the ones without. 

Also for emails

Determining if an invoice in Next® has attachments is fairly easy. If there is more than one file, then you have attachments

If we are talking about a raw email (not yet converted into PDF) where attachments are embedded in the email file, its slightly more complex. Still you will of cause want to know from the list. To provide that feature we now pre-process all emails we store in Next®. At the same time  we store a preview of each attachment in Next®, making it much faster and less recourse demanding to browse through your emails. 

For the techies

One of the Next® strongholds is our ability to provide a fast high quality display of complex emails with embedded images and attachments. With this enhancement, this feature has become even more convincing. And considerably less resource consuming.
