Document Formats

DocuNECT can store both documents and web URLs. The storage and management of any type of document is supported with a built in viewer for commonly used formats. Formats that are not supported in DocuNECT's viewer can be downloaded to the desktop so an alternate desktop viewer can be used.

URLs can either point an HTML web page, such as:

www.portfordsolutions.com

Or a document stored externally on the web:

www.portfordsolutions.com/documents/companyoverview.pdf

The following table provides more information on the viewers DocuNECT uses to display documents. DocuNECT's viewer is Java based and will install automatically the first time a document view is requested. Make sure you have the Java Runtime installed on your machine.
