Attachment Rules


Attachment rules allow for a new attachment to be coded somehow when it is added to OASIS. For example: anytime an order entry adds a file ending with .pdf as an order attachment, select the category as "Customer Document". In all cases, users have the ability to over-ride the coding before saving to OASIS.

Viewing Attachment Rules

To view attachment rules, select "Software" under "Configuration". Then select "Attachments Configuration":

And select the "Rules" tab:

Creating an Attachment Rule

To create an attachment rule, click on the insert row icon:

This will show the attachment sources. The "AttachFile" source is the most common as this source is used anytime a user manually drags a file into the attachments tab of an OASIS transaction. Other attachment sources are generated from within OASIS. For example, the Invoice-Print source is identified anytime someone sends a customer invoice from OASIS.

After selecting "AttachFile" we get:

The screen is divide between "tests" and "actions". As we add tests, all the tests must match before the actions are done. To add a test, select the insert row icon:


Selecting a test will show a configuration screen specific to the setup of the test. Selecting "User" shows the following:

Multiple users may be selected and for this test. The test will match if the logged in user when the attachment is added to OASIS matches the list of selected users.

Press Ok to save.

Then select insert row under the actions area:

Selecting an action will show a configuration screen for that action. Selecting "SetColor" shows:

We selected "Current".

The attachment rule will now set all attachments manually added to OASIS on any screen by the selected users to "Current":



Logging into OASIS as one of the selected users will result in the following when an attachment is manually added to OASIS:
