When files are sent to a typist by email or FTP , the files will arrive at their email inbox or the FTP server. In order for the files to be imported into the Transcription Module automatically, the Dictation Receive function must be enabled.

Note: This function requires a working email/FTP profile to be configured within ODMS. See Email setup guide here for instructions or see FTP setup guide here for instructions.
