Set Scheduler for Automatic File Removal

Users can specify the time frame when users want the files to be automatically deleted from both the Contact Module and the CRM's storage. This feature aids in the efficient management of storage space by automatically removing files after a specified period, thus ensuring that outdated or unnecessary files do not clutter the system.

For instance, 1 hour of time frame has been updated for lifetime timeframe. Once 1 hour is crossed, the files automatically will be automatically deleted from the Contact.


As you can see, the files were removed once we reached the time duration as per the set scheduler.


Customize Workflow Action for Email Sharing

Customize the workflow action to enable email sharing functionality. Specify the recipients' email addresses to whom users want to send the documents.


Creating Customized Email Templates

To create a customized email template, simply click on the "Create" button within the email template section. Provide a descriptive name for the template to easily identify it later. Select the type of template, optionally, add a brief description of the template to provide context for users. Insert merge fields to personalize the template.




Performing Workflow Action with Email Template

In this workflow action, users can select an email template from their CRM system or create a new one. They can then choose the multi-upload field to attach files, selecting the recipient's details with whom they want to share the files.

Create and locate the customized field for sending emails to recipients. For that, set the default value as "No" first and then choose "Yes" to initiate the email sharing process in Contact.

The system will automatically send emails to both the contact recipient and the selected email IDs specified in the workflow action.

After initiating the email sharing process from the CRM system, selected users will receive the shared documents directly in their Gmail accounts. The below picture stands for an instance of one user.
