Import ButtonsPermanent link for this heading

Up to four import buttons can be defined. When such a button is clicked, a Fabasoft Folio virtual application is opened, and the document is passed as parameter.

Note: In Microsoft Outlook the buttons can be found on the “File” tab of an opened e-mail. There are also entries in the context menu of an e-mail or attachment.

To configure which virtual application is executed when clicking a button, perform the following steps:
