We are working on an AP automation project
We are linking documents by PO number

We get all documents back in our search (PO, receiving, invoice and other)
How can we configure this so the customer can open all related documents with a single click?

Thank you

Is a third-party custom application an option? You can use the API to gather all documents at once (as PDFs) then combine them into one PDF. We do such integrations via .NET/C# programming.

I am not sure about viewing all at once in native DocuWare. What if some documents are PDF, others are DOCX, and still others are XLSX? What would a "combined" document look like in the viewer?

If they are all PDF, though, they are relatively easy to combine by downloading all PDFs then combining them with Acrobat automation or a command-line tool such as PDFTK. A custom application could also "print" non-PDF documents to convert them to PDF and then combine.

Good luck!
