Identifying Items (Icons) in NetDocuments



There are many different types of items that you can have in your NetDocuments account and sometimes it can be a bit tough to keep track of them all. Here is a list of items that you may see within your NetDocuments account along with their icons. Knowing the names of these items can help when trying to search the Help menu or when interacting with our Support department.

See also our NetDocuments Organization reference guide.  

NOTE: The new user interface in 17.2 includes new icons and logos. These are compared below with the 17.1 icons.
