Testing and Delivery Confirmation
  1. Your document email has now been sent.  To view information on delivery confirmation, click on the Communications tab and click Message Center.

The send document functionality will send the document and content in an email format to your recipients who have email specified as their communication preference.  Sending a document through this functionality will not add the document to the web portal.  In order to add the document to the web portal for your staff and residents to log in and open documents, navigate to the Resources tab and click Document Library.  Learn more about how to upload documents in Pilera here.
