Managing Email Notifications for Folders and Vaults

SmartVault users can add email notifications to a vault or folder to be alerted when someone views, uploads, or downloads documents in a folder. For example, you can upload a tax return to your client's folder and be automatically notified when the client has viewed it.

If you use Request Docs to get supporting documents from your clients, you can get a notification when your client uploads a document. The email notification includes the user who did the activity, the file name, and the date the file was viewed, uploaded, or downloaded.

SmartVault Administrators and Vault Managers can also add users, turn on notifications for specific users, and prevent users from changing the notification settings.
