The New
Department Documents Module

We are excited to announce the launch of the Department Documents module for RedNMX. This feature was developed to address the need for a centralized, accessible repository for department-wide documents and aims to make important documents easily accessible to all authorized personnel.

Key Features

Centralized Document Repository

Centralized Document Repository

Previously, documents in RedNMX were attached to specific entities such as properties (e.g., site plans), personnel (e.g., certificates), or incidents (e.g., photos of accidents). This new module creates a general area where documents relevant to the entire department can be stored and accessed by all authorized users.
Responder integration

Integration with Responder App

The module is live on the base system and will be available on mobile in the next update of the Responder App. This allows field personnel to access and view documents directly from their mobile devices. Initially, only metadata editing is supported on mobile, with full document upload capabilities planned for future updates.

Document Management

Document Management

Editing and Metadata: Administrators can add titles, subtitles, and descriptions to documents, and set the display order.

Viewing Options: Documents can be viewed using RedNMX’s native viewer or via an embedded web browser, providing flexibility depending on the document type and user preference.

Accessibility: Ensure documents are readily available to all users by setting appropriate permissions. Admins need to enable visibility for general users, ensuring control over document dissemination.

PDF and Image Files

Diverse Document Compatibility

PDFs: Ideal for standard operating procedures, meeting minutes, and guidelines.

Images: Supports JPEG, PNG, GIF, and TIFF formats for visual documentation.

External Links: Embed links to external web pages, such as shared Google Docs or other web resources.

Implementation and Access

Administrator Setup

Admins will see the new module button appear in their interface and can start populating it with documents. It’s crucial to set permissions for general users to access these documents.

No Additional Cost

For departments who have already purchased the Documents and Imaging module, this new feature is included at no extra charge.
