    Details

    Why is there a Docs folder within the GoldMine folder, why is that created and what does it contain?

    There is a mysterious ‘Docs’ folder in the GoldMine that sometimes appears in the GoldMine root directory but on a fresh
    installation it is not there



    Resolution

             The Docs folder is created automatically once a merge against a RTF template was performed

    Steps on a demo database:
    1. verify that on the GoldMine shared folder on the application server that there is no Docs folder
    2. within GoldMine as any user logged in
    3. Go To >> Document Templates
    4. make sure to have (public) selected in the User drop down
    5. Expand Letters, Memos and Faxes
    6. Double Click or right click >> Merge & Edit on the Fax Cover Sheet (which is a template based on a rtf file)
    7. Verify again the GoldMine shared folder on the application server that there is now Docs folder with a sub folder for the logged user and the rtf merge file within it
