  • 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.)

  • Add response documents to a group
  • Remove documents from a group
  • Intersect documents with a group

  • Manually select documents
  • Add documents in group to a Notes folder
  • Delete a group of documents
  • Copy documents from one database to another
  • Move documents from one database to another
  • Re-categorize an existing group of documents with various information (default, flat, field name, formula, and column value)

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)
