Use the Send to File Location dialog to send client data, custom methods, custom reports, or system settings to an encrypted file that you can password-protect for additional security. Fixed Assets CS creates this file in the folder you specify in this dialog.

Use the Send to Email Recipient dialog to send client data, custom methods, custom reports, or system settings to an encrypted file that Fixed Assets CS attaches to a blank email message. This file can also be password protected.

To open the Send to Email Recipient dialog, choose File > Send to > Email Recipient.

Note: Depending on your security configuration, you might be prompted to enter the master password before you can open the Send to Email Recipient dialog.

To open the Send to File Location dialog, choose File > Send to > File.

Notes

  • If your email service supports Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) protocol, use the Send to Email Recipient dialog to have Fixed Assets CS automatically open an email message and attach the data items.
  • If your email service is America Online (AOL), or another service that does not support MAPI protocol, save the data items using the Send to File Location dialog, create your message using AOL (or other non-MAPI-supporting service), and manually attach the file you created.
