Upload Notification has been added to the Attachments Folder

We’ve added email notification to the inbound email attachment feature.

Previously Upload notifications for Enterprise and Transcription accounts were limited to actual uploads.

Now you can set upload notification rules for the “Attachments” folder that receives files received by email sent to myattachments.com (if you have inbound attachments turned on, of course).

Up to now the workaround has been to also turn on “convert and forward” emails, which would generate a message to the email address associated with the administrator ID. Convert and Forward was originally intended for wireless device use, so it’s nice to add regular notification abilities to this special folder so the workaround can be dispensed with.

Thanks very much to those of you who suggested this enhancement.

Has the demise of the Medical Transcription Industry been greatly exaggerated?

It could very well be based on the third quarter results of Transcend Services, the third largest provider of medical transcription services in the United States.  Transcend reported revenue increases of 52% for the recently ended quarter with an increase in net income of 24%.

Need a Receipt for Tax Time?

Tax Time!

As tax time approaches you may have a need to provide a hard copy receipt of your membership fees to your accountant.  If so it is possible to generate a printable version of your most recent receipt by logging into your account at www.mydocsonline.com and clicking the “My Account” button.

Once you enter the My Account section you’ll see the Account Information section at the top of the page.  In that section you should see a link to View / Print Most Recent Receipt.  Clicking that link will provide a printable version of your most recent receipt.

If you have a quarterly membership and need a receipt for all purchases made during the year just email us at [email protected] and we’ll have our accounting group prepare that receipt for you.

Tax time can be chaotic so if there is anything we can do to help please let us know.

Uploading Keynote Files to your Account

Unlike PowerPoint, Apple’s Keynote uses XML and folders called “bundles” to package multiple files and folders into a presentation.

As a result, when uploading or downloading you are actually uploading and downloading a folder structure, and a lot of files.

To make things trickier, OSX and Safari understand the special nature of Keynote “bundles”. The Finder will treat the folder bundle as a presentation, and if you try to upload one to My Docs Online via Safari, it will be grayed out (you can’t select it for upload).

If you use FireFox, you can select the “presentation” but it won’t upload, because it isn’t really a file.

However, if you use the Transporter to upload the presentation it will upload the entire bundle (all folders and files).

Then, when you want to download the presentation to another Mac, use the Transporter again to “download folder” and the result will be a working Keynote presentation.
