Online Messaging

QCDocs has an integrated instant messaging client for exclusive use within QCDocs. This is designed for directing people to specific documents and to provide a history of those communications.

You access the instant messaging client by clicking on Online in the menu. You can toggle this feature on and off simply by clicking the Online button.

Sending a Message
  1. You can select the Online button, select the person you want to send a message to, and select Send message. This will open a popup screen as shown below where you can write your message. You can send a link to a document by putting the document ID in Parenthesis. E.g. [[22456]]. This will enable a hyperlink within the text of the message to the specified document.

  2. You can also send a message by right clicking on any filed document or a document in “Files in Progress” and select send to. This will result in a message window which you can then select the recipient and complete your message.

Receiving a Message

When a message arrives while you are logged into QCDocs Desktop, a notification will appear in the bottom corner of your screen. Otherwise, you will receive an email containing the message. Linked documents don’t work in email but will be available via the QCDocs Desktop or Portal messaging areas.
