Inbox Search


Currently, in our system, if the user want to use "Search For Forms" in Inbox folder, he/she needs to be granted "Mass Route Documents" permission. There is no standalone permission for opening up this feature in Inbox folder.  The search functionality was designed for the Mass Route Documents functionality, to enable people to select multiple forms from the inbox, and route them using "Sent to Next Step.”

Go to Admin Tools > Manage Employees-->Set User Permissions-->Administrative Privileges-->Managing Documents--->Select either Mass Route Document Forward or Mass Route Document Backward, or both as needed.
