Email Distribution

Email Distribution gives you the ability to send documents produced in the Document Production Center, as a Zip file attachment, directly to your Contacts’ email addresses. If you want recipients to receive secure file attachments, you can enable a Document Key, which can use either a free text string of characters, or the personalized Document Key assigned to each Contact.

An Office Template Workflow is also required.
