After you’ve installed DOCman Populate, follow these simple steps:

  1. Upload your files using FTP, into the /dmdocuments folder. (It might have a different name — check your DOCman configuration)
  2. In the backend, go to Components -> DOCman Populate -> Configuration
  3. Choose the default settings. These will be used for all documents that you generate.
  4. Go to Components -> DOCman Populate -> Import Files
  5. Select the files you want (you can use Ctrl-click / Cmd-click for multiple files)
  6. Pick a category and click the import button
  7. The documents are now available in DOCman.
