Document management

In ELMA365 you can create routes for electronic documents. Automate all stages of the document lifecycle, whether it is an invoice, a contract or an incoming letter. Automation allows you to get rid of bottlenecks in the existing procedures. The document is timely approved and doesn't get lost. 

Set up the document flows following these steps:

1. Create and configure Document Categorization.  

Document categorization scheme allows the users to register the company documents and quickly find them. Read more in the Document categorization scheme and registration settings article.

2. Set up registration.

You can register the documents in ELMA365 both manually and automatically. If you want to register the documents automatically, the registration number will be created according to the specified template settings. Read more about that in the Document categorization workspace article.

3. Create a Document type app.

The document type apps are used for creating documents, for example, agreements, requests, invoices and so on. These apps contain both the documents and their information, such as the registration number, status, creation date, etc. You can organize centralized storage of documents, register them, search by document attributes, create workflows that will cover all the stages of the document lifecycle. Statuses help to track at what stage the document currently is. Read more in the Document type apps article.

4. Set up document access.

Specify who is allowed to view, edit or delete files, folders, and documents as well as change their access settings. Read more in the Access to documents and files article.

5. Configure a document route.

You can create the Approval route, for example specify the approvers, set up the tasks and determine the approval conditions tailored to the needs of your company. You can also use the Ready-made document routes to send files for information or for approval. They are available for Document type apps as well as for files in the Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and other formats. Read more in the How to configure a document route article.

Now, the users can register the documents, send them for approval, and create tasks online. All registered documents can be found in the Document categorization workspace. They are displayed in accordance with the document categorization scheme hierarchy. In addition, the system controls the task deadlines and notifies the management about the overdue tasks.
