Documents are always created within the context of your application, and are not limited to a case, a space, or a Pulse conversation. However, you can reference the same document from multiple cases and spaces in your application.
You create documents directly in your application by using the built-in rich text editor or by uploading a file. When you create a document by uploading a file, you can provide a name for the document and use the rich text editor to add a meaningful description. If needed, you can also update documents later on.
With documents, you have the following options for collaborating on cases:
- Use Pulse to discuss a document with other users of your application.
- Follow documents.
- Pin documents to spaces.
- Link documents to cases.
- Add attachments to a document.
- Download a document.
- Generate a link to a document and share it with other users.
The following tasks can help you use documents to share information with other users:
- Creating a document in an application
Create a document to share or discuss information with other users in your application. For example, you can create a document and then use Pulse to discuss the document with your team.
- Discussing and managing a document
Discuss a document by using Pulse to review additional information about a case with other users in your application, for example, to analyze a faulty sales order.
