CogniDox Provides Document Management Integration with Microsoft Outlook

Share Article

Cognidox Limited today announced the availability of an updated version of their Microsoft Office Add-in that adds Microsoft® Outlook® to the list of supported applications. The Add-in already provides support for Word®, Excel®, and PowerPoint®.

Cognidox Limited, a leading provider of smart product document management technology, has launched a new version of its Microsoft Office Add-in.

The CogniDox Office Add-in enables users to store information received by email in the document control repository by providing direct access from within the Microsoft Outlook email client. The solution is fully-integrated within the Outlook user interface.

Email can be described as the main command and control centre for most business users, and the main share of information enters and leaves an organisation via email. This can be a problem if users store that information in their private inbox. Sharing that information in a document repository instead has direct benefits for employee productivity, overall quality management, and information governance or compliance.

The new Add-in provides Outlook features such as:

  •     Save an Outlook .msg file as a document in CogniDox (can include attachments)
  •     Save one or more attachments from an email message as individual documents in CogniDox
  •     Attach a CogniDox document as a link to an email during composition (for internal recipients)
  •     Attach a CogniDox document as a file to an email during composition (for external recipients)

The Outlook Add-in appears as a sidebar in the same style as the Word, Excel and PowerPoint add-ins. Users simply drag and drop the message in Outlook to CogniDox or the document in CogniDox to Outlook.

The CogniDox Office Add-in is available for download from the Cognidox support site and is free for all customers with a current subscription.
