Document Manager replies on the build in settings about documents in Dynamics. It reuses the values in the system lists Document Locations and SharePoint Sites.
Each entity that has documents must has corresponding system values in these lists. These system values identify the SharePoint location of the folder that contains entity’s documents.
Document Manager works in two modes:
Default: Select this mode if you have already the default integration configured. Document Manager will continue to use this setup. The newly create location will follow the default pattern.
Custom: Select this mode if you have already a custom logic about creating document locations. Document Manager won’t create any location records.
