  • Copy a document NoteID

Mass Document Operations

Listing and Grouping Documents (using Display Titles and My Selection features)

  • List documents by any item value
  • List documents by a resulting formula
  • Create specific/custom groups of documents for a desired action (whether it's to edit, delete, copy, move, apply a formula on them all etc.)

Comparing Documents (comparing a small number of documents)

  • Compare documents side by side
  • Display only the differences between documents

Diff (see differences between large sets of documents)

  • Show a Diff table (a kind of "consistency comparison") between large sets of documents to quickly see any inconsistencies (keeps results in cache for performance enhancements)
