Upto 100 files can be checked simultaniously using the double checkbox at the top.

mceclip9.png Delivery List

When you click on the icon, you will be shown the delivery list. This page contains information about the distribution of the file:


The list of recipients shows to whom the file has been forwarded. The checkmark indicates the delivery status, the date and time record when the file was accessed by the recipient.

Use the tabs at the top to review additional information, i.e. when the files were sent under "Sender" of if any tasks are linked to the file under the tab "Tasks".

If the delivery list mceclip0.pngis displayed in red, the file is locked:

mceclip3.png File Information

The file information contains all relevant data regarding the file such as assigned metadata, comments (Redlining), references and details.


Besides providing information, select actions can also be executed via the file information:

The filename can be modified in the first line. This option is not advisable if the filename must adhere to the filenaming convention. If modifying the filename the new name can be tested with the button «Test» to the right. 

Quick access to select functions can be found in the second line in the drop-down menu below the filename. Choose an option from the menu and click «Execute» to the right to perform the chosen action.

Depending on the type of modification, click either «Save» or «Parse and save» at the bottom of the page to finish.

Use Save for simple modifications such as "Confidential" or modifications to the description

Use Parse and save anytime modifications to the metadata have been made such as assigning new key words or changing the filename of files that must be named after the filenaming convention.
