Additional Details about NetDocuments

Integration with Outlook

With NetDocument’s Office 365 add-in, you can manage and store documents within Outlook. This tight integration with Outlook means that attorneys can file client communications right from the application rather than manually moving it for storage in a client file. NetDocuments will make suggestions as to where to file an email based on the sender, the subject line, and attachments.

Document sets

SetBuilder is an add-on program for NetDocuments that assembles multi-document sets into a single PDF with a shareable link. This is useful for attorneys who routinely work with large numbers of documents, such as real estate lawyers handling a closing. That can save time and reduce the errors that can occur when a team member manually assembles the document set.
