Custom aspect

Let us assume that your sales people would like to track all of their proposals that are related to a customer. They would like to search the documents and execute business rules, based on the customer details. They would like to capture the following customer details for all of the documents in the sales department space:

  • Name of the customer
  • Contact's name at the customer's place
  • Contact person's phone number
