The Recent Docs drop-down menu displays your most recently accessed documents.
On the Recent Docs list, you can show a list of those documents that you have most recently Edited or Opened or Added. You can also view All Recent Documents. The list you have selected will be underlined.
All Recent Documents
This list will contain the most recently edited, opened, and added documents in sequential order. Any action that places a document in one of the other three lists (editing, opening, uploading, etc ) will also cause the document to be placed in the All list.
Recently Edited Documents
You must edit a document for it to appear on the Recently Edited Documents list. The list shows the most recent 40 documents you have edited.
Recently Opened Documents
You must open a document before it is added to Recently Opened Documents. The list shows the most recent 40 documents you have opened.
NOTE: Accessing the Profile for a document does not constitute an open or edit.
Recently Added Documents
This list contains the 40 most recent documents you have added to NetDocuments. If you copy a document in NetDocuments, the new document is included in this list.
NOTE: If you use ndOffice to save email messages to NetDocuments, those messages will appear in your Recently Added list.
NOTE: If you click on a document and get a message that it is checked out by another user, and you cancel the open, the document is also added to your Recently Opened Docs list so that you can return again to that document quickly.
NOTE: For some organizations, an integrations package may be in use that modifies the document each time it is opened, by adjusting the footer with the Doc ID, etc. In these cases, the Recently Opened list and the Recently Edited may be identical.
