Within "Document Delivery Setup", you now have the functionality to set up documents that can be processed automatically, either immediately or via a job queue. This can occur either on the Release of a document or on Posting a document, dependant on which you are sending. This functionality not only saves the User time and makes the sending process more efficient but also eliminates the possibility of documents being forgotten.
The Auto Send FastTab includes several document fields that can be pre-defined to confirm the method used to send documents.
The column on the left shows you the documents which can be automated and require you to confirm the method you require these to be sent. Within each dropdown, you have 3 options:
'Blank' - No setup is defined
'Send' - The document will be immediately sent upon Release/Post and will show in the "Doc. Delivery Document Log" as Process Type 'Mail Send'.
'Queue' - The document will be placed into a queue via the Job Queue upon Release/Post and will show in the "Doc. Delivery Document Log" as Process Type 'Mail Queue'.
The Default columns on the right of the image above require you to confirm what "Document Type" will be sent at the point of processing.
It is important to note that the Sales Order and Purchase Order are processed automatically upon 'Release' of the document, whilst the Posted Sales Invoice, Posted Sales Shipment and Remittance Advice are processed upon 'Posting'. So as an example using the image above, upon the 'release' of my "sales order" the Customer will automatically be sent the 'SO' Document Type related to their order. No manual process is required from the User.
