Online Document Management Just Got Easier New Drag And Drop And Multiple Document Uploads In Skylight 1
Today online document management in Skylight just got simpler. Skylight team is pleased to announce the latest release of multiple file upload with drag and drop functionality in Skylight.

 

Online Document Management

Online document management has been  part of Skylight system for a long time, no online project management system is complete without some sort of document management built in. To help businesses we at Skylight released file upload feature back in December of 2010. Later on that same month, we released support for realtime document editing and collaboration with Google Docs integration .

That was way back in 2010! Over the years Skylight team has made countless new enhancements to document management. Google Docs online word processor integration was added to help business increase collaboration with online excel and online word capabilities offered by Google Drive, such as support for Google drawings, presentations and other file formats.

Uploaded documents and files in Skylight can be attached to comments, helping with increased collaboration, saving time otherwise spent on sending countless emails. File uploaded to comments are further organised by the record that the comment relates too. Therefore if the comment is related to a task then the uploaded file will show up as part of that task files, or project of which that task is a member off.

 

Drag & Drop Documents to Upload

The new feature will help you upload multiple documents to a project, task, comment, milestone or a stage. So from your desktop simply select the files and drag them to a task on your dashboard My Tasks widget.
