Customer documents

As a company with multiple customers we've found keeping physical copies of all of the contracts and agreements for each client in files and folder, in boxes and storage rooms quite a inefficient, ineffective and honestly, messy way of doing things. Worry no more, we have digitalized this very necessary form of keeping records for you.

Our documents section allows you to upload any format of a document, giving you a secure, neat, easily manageable and quite literally better method of storing your documents. Need more? Our document section can also generate documents according to templates you create for it! Digitalizing the entire process and achieving hassle free bookkeeping.

Generating a document in Splynx.

Let's take a look at generating a document within Splynx.

To generate a document in Splynx click on the Generate icon on the top right corner of the tab, this will bring up a Generate document pop-up window. Where you can specify the Title of document, a short description (optional) and choose if you'd like the document to be visible to the customer.

Generate documents

There are two options to generate the body of the document:

  • Option 1 - simply type the desired content in the text window and then click on Generate or Save as new template (option to save the manually generated content as a template can be found above the text area).

    Just as uploading documents, as soon as a document has been generated, it will immediately appear in the list of documents.

    Type document

  • Option 2 - we can use a Template to create/generate a document by clicking on the Template drop-down list, selecting a Template and then clicking on the Load icon. This will populate the text area with preconfigured content from the template. You then have to enter a Title for the document, give a short description (optional), choose whether or not to make it visible to the customer and complete the process by clicking on Generate.

As mentioned before, it will appear in the list of documents once completed and based on the selection for the "visible_to_customer" field, it may or may not be available for downloading in the customer portal.
