Dictations received via E-mail/FTP can be routed to particular folders to help manage your files. You can also setup a document return function, to automatically send the document to the sender once transcription is completed.

Please note, for this function to work you must have the ODMS software setup with either E-mail or FTP in order to configure the routing rules. If you want transcribed documents to be sent back to the sender you will also need to configure the software to open a word processor.

 How the document creation and sending works

  • If you have configured the software to use automatic document creation and sending function, then go to the option settings and click on "Email/FTP".
  • Tick the box "Automatically send the files via E-mail/FTP" and select "Send files in the Outbox immediately".

Once the options are configured, the process of document creating and sending will occur as follows:

  • When you start a transcription in the software this will also open the specified document template. You will notice the document will automatically be saved with the name of the dictation file.
  • When you have finished typing the document, click save before you close the transcription so this ensures you are sending back the latest document.

Note:  Do not rename or change the location of the document as this will remove the association to the dictation. The document will, therefore, not be automatically sent back.
