A powerful weapon in the paper war!
Atlas Document Manager enables the forest manager to readily view all relevant documents related to any forest entity in Atlas GeoMaster.
These documents can be contracts, orthophotos, resource consents, file notes or any other document held as an electronic file somewhere on the organisation’s computer network. If some documents are not in electronic form it may be necessary to scan them, but once done they will never be lost in boxes or obscure folders again.
Document Manager can be used to link these electronic documents to the relevant entity recorded in ATLAS GeoMaster e.g. a forest, stand, or event. Note that Document Manager does not store or manage the documents themselves; it only manages references to documents (e.g. the file path and name).
|Documents readily avaiable||Any documents on the network can easily be associated with GeoMaster entities, making them accessible from GeoMaster.|
|Many document formats included||Documents in most file formats can be associated eg text, images, and web addresses.|
|Documents easily found||Document references can be organised into a logical structure.|
|Document lists are inherited||Documents linked to higher level entities in the GeoMaster forest structure are visible within lower level objects.|
|Easy updating of document references and groups||Document references can easily be edited, deleted and moved, as can the folders in which they are grouped.|
|Automated updating of documents references||Updating the file path of one document can lead to automatic updating of other similar document references.|
