    • Click the ellipsis (three dots) at the end of the document line.
    • Select the desired action: "Archive," "Delete," or "Move Vault File."



Document Upload Trigger Notifications to Advisor 

As an advisor, we understand the importance of staying informed when clients upload documents to their Vault, enabling you to review or utilise the documents promptly.

Email notifications are automatically sent to the client's primary professional each time a document is uploaded directly to the Vault.

Document Upload Email Notifications ensure advisors are promptly notified of document uploads for timely review and action. Advisors will only receive notifications for direct client uploads to the vault, not via governance/foundations surveys.
