Create new document from existing PDF document

New feature for those who work with PDF documents in Next®.

Now you can easily create a new document based on an existing document in Next.®.

If you work in a insurance or pension company, you receive comprehensive documents containing very sensitive personal information. Excerpts from these bigger documents you need to share with external parties - for example specialist doctors. Of course you cannot share the entire document, as it contains sensitive personal information, that is not needed for the specialist's work. This new feature makes it easy to create a document containing only the needed pages. If you need black-out sections of the text in the resulting document, use quick-edit pdf.


Click 'Add as new document', select the page numbers you want and document type - Medical document to share - and there you go.

Choose the relevant pages and add new metadata

When you are finished, the new document is filed in Next® based on the metadata and with a full-text index of the content of the document, ready to share. 

The business log

Whenever you create a new document in Next®, it is logged in the business log.

Future enhancements

No further enhancements has have been planned.
