eXpressTransit includes two screens to manage documents: Compose Documents and Electronic Documents.
The Compose Documents screen provides a document editor similar to Microsoft WordTM with added functionality to generate mail-merge documents using contact information stored in eXpressTransit for paratransit riders, transit staff or external contacts. Having a full-featured document editor within eXpressTransit allows you to easily generate letters and track who they were sent to and the date sent. From the Paratransit Riders, External Contacts and Transit Staff screens you can see a list of all past correspondence and click any of them to instantly open the letter. Or you can start a new letter directly from those screens. And since all your documents are stored directly in eXpressTransit you never have to worry about losing them on a network file server or configuring share permissions.
The Electronic Documents screen in eXpressTransit lets you quickly preview, open and email files located in local or network folders. Locating files can be very time-consuming with Windows Explorer but the Electronic Documents screen solves that by essentially creating shortcuts to specific folders. Folder contents are displayed in a tree structure that allows you easily find, select and view each file's contents in a read-only preview window. Supported document types include Word (DOC, DOCX), Excel (XLS, XLSX), Adobe Acrobat (PDF), Text, HTML and images (PNG, JPG, BMP, GIF, TIF).
