This feature is designed to give users a one-click method to automatically check out documents without using the ActiveX add-on for IE. We recommend using the latest version available.

Compare ActiveX and ndOneClick

ndOneClick allows users to automatically check out and download documents from any browser on Windows - Chrome, Firefox, and Safari - using a single left-click. This feature is also available on Mac OS.

8) Click Open the first time you open a document:

Using ndOneClick

When first using ndOneClick, the browser will prompt the user to allow access to ndOneClick. You must select the option to allow the browser to access ndOneClick. There may be an option to "always allow ndOneClick."

Once ndOneClick is installed, when you click on a document, it will be checked out, downloaded, and then opened automatically in its native application (.docx files will open in Word, etc.). 

When you are finished editing the document, save it, close it, then click the green Check-In button in NetDocuments. This process will be very similar to that of using the ActiveX in Internet Explorer (for those who are familiar with that environment), unless you are also using ndOffice (see below).

Other functions that are available with the ActiveX, such as automated login and auto-import, are NOT available with ndOneClick.

Using ndOneClick with ndOffice

If you have both ndOneClick and ndOffice installed, and you open a document from the web browser, ndOneClick will hand off the document to ndOffice to open it. Similar to the ActiveX hand-off, ndOffice will only handle file types compatible with Office applications. For example, .docx and .xlsx files will be handed off to ndOffice, but .txt files will not. 

ndOffice will check the document in when it is closed, and the web UI will be updated to show the document is checked in.

Printing Documents

ndOneClick also allow you to use the Print option to print documents directly from NetDocuments. The Print option will not appear for users in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari if they do not have ndOneClick installed. 

Desktop Email Integration

With the Desktop Email Integration (MAPI) enabled, ndOneClick will open a new Outlook message when using the Email Link and Email Copy options in the web UI.
