Table of contents


To set up this module, you need to go to:

  • Knowledge / Configuration / Settings

From this menu you'll have a central access to install the apps that belong to Knowledge.

  • Check Attachments List and Document Indexation if you want to install the module that allows users to attach documents to any model.
  • Check Manage attachments centrally if you want all users to be able to access to the all attachments to which they have read permissions, from the menu Knowledge / Documents

If you want to grant Central Access to Documents only to some users:

  1. Go to Settings/Activate the developer mode. Only a user with Administration / Settings permissions can do that.
  2. Go to Settings / Users & Companies / Users and set the checkbox Central access to Documents to the selected users.


This module adds a new top level menu Knowledge

Users with permission Central access to Documents can access in Knowledge/Documents to all the documents attached to records of any model for which they have read permission.
