The Documents page enables users, managers, and administrators to attach and view files that supplement the user's profile. The availability of certain functionality is determined by the user's permissions.
Note: The folders that display on the Documents page are created by the administrator in Documents Preferences. In addition, the Documents widget only displays if enabled in Snapshot General Preferences.
The availability of this functionality is controlled by backend settings.
