Attach Documents to SmartVault Toolbar in Web Browser


This article explains how to attach documents to transactions when using the SmartVault web browser toolbar. You can install it for the following browsers: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Firefox. The toolbar is not compatible with Safari, or Internet Explorer 11.


You can only use the browser toolbar if you have a user or client license on the SmartVault account.


Attach a document from your computer

1. After installing the toolbar into the browser of your choice, it will appear on the right side of the screen when you go to a transaction entry in Xero or Quickbooks Online.

Attach a Document Already in SmartVault

1. Once the toolbar has been installed into the web browser, click on the Inbox icon located on the toolbar. It will take you to the Inbox folder for the company file. If there is already a document there, you will see it. If the document is in another folder location, select Browse Folders.



2. Hit the plus button on the file that you want to attach, and that will take it out of the folder it's in, and move it to the transaction folder in SmartVault for the company file you are working in.
