Add-In Method – FileVision provides a set of “Add-ins” which is normally installed by your IT Support, this is small program attached to Word, Excel and PDF, that creates additional buttons that allows the user to Save a New Document, save back in an existing document or saves as a PDF directly from your Office suite.

Manual Method – Manual Method means the User opens FileVision first then uses the Document Upload and Check In buttons to save a new document or save an existing document back into FileVision.



The Manual Method is highly recommended if you wish to work on a document outside (offline) from FileVision for a longer period of time

The Add-In Method is great for saving a new document or a quick revision of an existing document.
