How do I view a document?

From user's Wiki!
Jump to: navigation, search

Clicking on the Document Icon from your Search Results will open your Document in DIAL. DIAL (Document Imaging Application Lite) is an embedded application that allows quick viewing of your Document, minor Document manipulation, editing of Custom Fields, and the management of Relationships.


Document Properties/Entity Properties - There are five (5) main functions a User can perform in the right Properties Panel:

  • Set or change the Document/Entity Type
  • Populate or change the Custom Fields
  • Change the Folder location
  • Manage Relationships by creating a new Entity or search for an existing one.
  • Journal Directs a User to the Journal page to add notes.


DIAL (Document Imaging Application Lite) Tools Export Document - Clicking Export allow a user to save the document, in its native format, to a file location (outside of EKDB) of their choice.

  • NOTE: PDFs will only save as PDFs; TIFs will only save as TIFs. If you want to export a TIF to a PDF, use DIA (Document Imaging Application).*
