Automating a process. Smart documents can actually “know”
when they are complete and route themselves to the next person in
the approval process of a business proposal. When the next person
reviews the document, he or she can click programmed Accept or
Reject buttons to send the document along to be printed and then
added to a document library, perhaps on a Microsoft SharePoint
Team Services site.
Note These are just a few ideas for possible application of smart
documents. Because this technology offers a wide open opportunity
for developers, it will be interesting to see how their creative minds
make the most of these powerful and flexible features to help end
users working in the familiar Word and Excel interfaces.
Smart Document Possibilities
Smart documents provide a great opportunity for developers to create custom
smart document applications for businesses. In a doctor’s office, for example,
smart documents might enable office personnel to do the following:
Create a referral letter to a particular specialist using boilerplate
information suggested by the smart document
Automatically route reports to various doctors in the practice
Track, store, and update information related to consultations
Easily look up information on treatment plans, prescriptions, health
insurance, and more
Provide prompts related to a specific patient, such as the date of the
last visit, the attending doctor, and so on
In a car dealership, smart documents could take care of these tasks:
Control vehicle customization worksheets that track costs of specific
custom items and apply them to pricing per unit
Provide customer service workers with links to information about a
specific customer’s car and service record
Insert boilerplate legal information for lease and purchase contracts
