Document Checklist

Streamline Your Document Collection Process




It is a tedious process to remember all the documents that need to be uploaded in each and every stage of the workflow and especially when there are multiple workflows. It is therefore not efficient when users need to confirm the list of documents to be uploaded from other sources. Therefore, to save from this hassle, Agentcis offers its users the Document Checklist function. Under this function, the user will be able to create a document checklist so that it becomes easier to know which documents to upload.

However, before creating a document checklist, you need to create the document type. There must be a document type for each application stage or a workflow stage so that they know the category to which the document belongs. For example, Passport, School certificates, Citizenship, Bank documents, etc.

Please Note: The Document Checklist Feature is only available on our premium subscription plan
