Faxes

Facsimiles or faxes are generated through Fax on Demand or by utilizing the eScription One AutoFax or Distribution Rules features. The Manage Faxes tab is available to track or resend faxes, and Pending Faxes is used to monitor AutoFax jobs that have not yet reached the fax trigger.

Manage Faxes

The Manage Faxes tab looks similar to the Search All screen, but the search fields have been optimized for searching through faxes and recipients. By default, users do not have access to the Manage Faxes or Pending Faxes tabs. Manage Faxes can be accessed from the left Navigation menu > Search All > Faxes or Faxes > Manage Faxes.

Upon loading the Manage Faxes page, the Advanced Search parameters window is presented. Data is not returned until a search is submitted. If the Advanced Search window is closed without submitting a search, the page will be empty. Click on Advanced Search to enter criteria and submit a search.

Searching and filtering in the Faxes tabs is very similar to searching in Search All - Basic Search, but the Advanced Search window has different criteria fields. See Searching and Filtering for more details.
