Configure the Letter Attachments Document Type

In Documents > Admin > Document Types, you need to configure the system Letter Attachments document type. This document type controls the ability for users to do the following in Letter Management:

  • Upload and manage documents in the Attachments tab of Letter Management > Template Designer.
  • Attach documents to letter templates in the Templates tab of Letter Management > Template.

Employees must also have access to this document type to be able to download documents that are attached to the letter.
