Did you know that you can create a shortcut in Windows to a frequently used item in Laserfiche? A shortcut will open the Laserfiche Client and take a user directly to that document or folder.

To create a shortcut in Windows to a folder in Laserfiche, drag the folder from the Laserfiche Folder Browser to where you want it in Windows (e.g., your desktop).

To create a shortcut to a document, press CTRL+SHIFT while dragging the document from the Laserfiche Folder Browser to the desired location in Windows.

What about searches? In Laserfiche version 8.2 or higher, users can create a Laserfiche shortcut that directs the user to the results page for a particular search. For example, if an employee needs to do a weekly check on all invoices that are waiting to be paid, he can create a desktop shortcut that will run that search when opened.
