Good Morning,


I have been trying for months to figure out how my accounting team could use m3 to go completely paperless and not have to print any journal entries and applicable back up for storage. The problem is we use excel and pdfs as back up and Acknowledge uses tiff files to attach. The other issue is that Acknowledge currently has a bug which does not allow for multiple journal entries to be attached at once. So to get around all that, we did a trial and eventually purchased a few licenses of a software called scanworks. Scanworks is a virtual scanner that you attach PDFs to and they come out as tiff files. M3 thinks you are using a scanner but in reality you are just attaching a PDF. I recommend trying this out and it has helped us out a lot.

Hello Ben,


Thank you for the information you have provided, our technical team will be looking into the item you have mentioned to confirm it is a viable option that we can relay to other users that may express interest in going towards a paperless option. 


Also, please note that the document system will accept PDF's to attach to files, in addition to TIFF formatted file, using the Browse and attach options.
