Team networks and PDF distribution explained

Teams Network is a feature that sets up a 'parent/child' network between teams.  A parent team receives a feed of all the child team sent documents, can perform actions on its behalf, and can distribute documents to it.

The teams' network is a management tool; where you have many teams you can easily supervise their activity and distribute documents from one 'parent' team.

A network is particularly useful where you need to copy documents between teams.  You can have one team in control of your documents and then use Document Functions to distribute those documents among teams with a few clicks.

A network can extend to multiple levels vertically and horizontally.

A parent team will gain access to a child team, and all users in that parent team will gain visibility of a child team's activity.  However, a user must be a member of that child team in order to take any actions on behalf of that child team.  A user in a parent team who is not also a user in the child team is equivalent to a 'read only' user of the child team.

To Network teams together, access the team you want to assign as the parent team and go to Admin > Network. From this page add any teams you want as child teams and click Add as a child of this team.

To distribute a document from a parent to child team, go to Doc options > Document functions > Distribute PDF Document and select the document you want to distribute, the child team you want to distribute to and enter a document name. Finally, click Distribute to send the document.
