Sharing Files in The Organizer Folder with Clients


Because many firms annotate files in the Organizer 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 Organizer folder, edit the DMS migration rule to move them to the Client Organizer folder. The Client Organizer 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.
