Sharing Files in the Source Documents Folder with Clients


Because many firms annotate files in the Source Documents folder, SmartVault moves these files into the Source Documents folder by default. This action removes the files from being shared with your clients.

However, if you want clients to see documents from the Source Documents folder, edit the DMS migration rule to move them to the Client Source Documents folder. The Client Source Documents folder is a shared folder accessible to your clients from the client portal.

Return to these steps when you are ready to begin your migration.
